Tell prospective students a bit about the work you do.
I am the co-founder of the Help Fight Ebola Canada (Awareness Campaign). I volunteer as the Strategic Advisor and Campaign Coordinator to raise awareness about the Ebola Virus through radio and TV interviews. My duties involve community outreach, recruiting and mentoring volunteers; soliciting and scheduling speakers from the medical and science community as well as journalists. To foster community engagement, I organize educational forums on Ebola, deliver presentations at churches, community centres and academic institutions. I also conduct media and government relations, solicit funds for our charity of choice, Globalmedic, as well as manage and build our contact list.
