“My name is Claudia Bernal, I am in the second year of Early Childhood Education and happy to attend Trafalgar Campus. I am a student passionate to serve people, looking forward to representing my peers' best interests, ideas and projects. I have been fortunate to meet beautiful, talented, friendly people, who had encouraged my to do my best and to challenge myself during my journey through Sheridan and would like everyone to share this invaluable experience. I have been working as Peer Mentor within the International Centre and also as International Student Ambassador, where I encourage and help students to feel confident to succeed. I am also a STAR representing the ECE program and an enthusiastic volunteer in and out of college. I am also Vice-President of Sheridan International Students Association (SISA).
My goal is to inspire students by supporting and accompanying them wherever they need me and at the same time sharing knowledge towards having the best student life. I want to support students in having positive experience in our community in and out college, by developing strategies to encourage them to get involved in a holistic environment where we work together to create opportunities for students by representing their interests and projects. I want to support them in having a voice to ensure they feel included and motivates all while encompassing the pride of belonging to our Sheridan community.
I love being part of Sheridan and would love to make students feel the same way. I like to learn and always look for positive things in people because I strongly believe that each individual has different qualities, that joined together can make a strong impact in someone's life. I would consider myself as a successful person if I am able to impact in a positive way in the life of others. I think that by being part of the Board, I would be given with the opportunity to representing my peers, giving them a voice, impacting in their live.
Not only have I grown as a professional inside the classroom, but also, personally through all the enriching experiences that Sheridan has brought me outside them.”
