My experience as a student council executive has empowered me to make a meaningful impact on student's lives through advocacy and support. SCOLAPS has been a great learning experience and has provided me with the unique opportunity to grow as a person. Becoming a member allows students to learn more about themselves, in addition to fostering skills like leadership, communication, public speaking, organization and teamwork.
