“Since my first months at McGill, I’ve slowly learned to extend the incredible compassion and community-building that my classmates have imparted to me. The creation of togetherness in every class, club, or team has been pivotal in building who I am now, and I am happily a part of a Rube Goldberg machine that inspires the next generation to flourish. As we graduate, we leave connected and ready to improve the lives around us.”
