Hi everyone, my name is Jessica (she/her) and I’m running for the NUS First Year Wellness Coordinator position! I previously did a double major degree in Human Biology and Psychology here at U of T. That means that I completely understand the struggles of being a U of T student. As a student with a psychology background, I also want to use my knowledge on certain psychological and emotional aspects of health and wellness in order to mitigate the challenges that we might find ourselves facing throughout this fast-paced program. I also have previous experience in a “Building Healthy Minds” club where I worked with other students to plan events that promoted mindfulness and provided a safe space for students to support each other. Although running for something like this is a little bit out of my comfort zone, I really want help to promote everyone’s physical, emotional, and mental health. Some ideas I have to help us de-stress include dog therapy (with hypoallergenic dogs, for us allergy-sufferers), plant sales, and care packages, as permitted by NUS. If elected for this position, I would also love to hear your ideas on how I can make our experiences in this program a positive one! Thank you so much for considering me to be your next First Year Wellness Coordinator. I am so excited to meet more of my fellow future nurses!
