Why I am doing this:
During my four years of involvement with the Dalhousie Commerce Society's community initiatives, I've had the pleasure of witnessing how powerful of an impact students are capable of creating in the community through initiatives like Dalhousie's 5 Days for the Homeless campaign. The 5 Days initiative is especially influential because it reminds us that circumstance plays a role in the privileges we often take for granted as university students. It's important that we don't exempt ourselves from the responsibility to raise funds and awareness that create opportunities for those affected by terrible circumstances. The beneficiary of 5 Days, Phoenix Youth Programs, is exemplary in creating remarkable and sustainable impact in the lives of Halifax youth. I'm so excited and honored to join Phoenix in the effort to create opportunities for all of Halifax to thrive!
