Testimonial:

This program has introduced me to so many interesting people and has allowed me to explore more of who I am as a person also. Being from a small town in Saskatchewan I was very shy when I started University. When I joined the Ambassador program I never would of guessed I would have broken out of my shell and be willing to public speak in front of hundreds of people. This program allowed me to express myself in volunteer activities that I enjoyed and had a connection too such as Relay for Life. After four years of being in this program it has allowed me to explore and learn about who I am as a person and I could not have asked for anything better to be a part of. - Melanie Chodak
