Hi everyone! I am in my final year of my Bachelor of Commerce degree, pursuing a double concentration in Finance and International Business. This will be my first year participating in 5D4H!
Why I am doing this:
For years I have been in awe of those whom have participated in this campaign, while simultaneously participating in various extracurriculars and dedicating time to academics. However, for far too many youth in Ottawa, this is not a choice - rather a reality. This year, I have made it my mission to make a greater impact on my local community through volunteerism and philanthropic efforts, specifically targeting various problems faced by at-risk youth. Through the Five Days for the Homeless campaign, all funds raised will be going to Operation Come Home, an amazing organization which provides homeless youth with the support and resources necessary to create a better circumstance.
I am incredibly excited to start fundraising and creating awareness of this pressing issue facing our youth today. Can't wait to see you all out there!
