Q & A

Q: How did you become a co-op student at the Students Commission?

A: My teacher gave me a stack of (options on) paper - places that offered co-op for journalism - and asked me to order them by my top choices. The only one that responded was the Students Commission.

Q: What is it like working here?

A: It's fun and everybody is nice. Work is all over the spectrum when it comes to writing and graphics.

Q: What are some of the projects you've worked on?

A: I worked on creating a database of YMCA youth programs, designing the Blueprint project brochure, recording the This Is Canada conference response/notes and data and writing and designing the co-op website.

Q: What has been the most interesting thing that has happened or thing that you've done while working here?

A: The most interesting thing I've done was going to a conference (National Skills Institute on Teen Healthy Relationships, the Canadian Women's Association conference) and helping to facilitatethere. I had never been to a conference like that before, and it was interesting to see it and be a part of it.

Q: What skills did you learn during co-op?

A: I learned how to facilitate, how to use iMovie, and how to create interview questions.

Q: Have you enjoyed working at the SC?

A: Yes I have, because everyone is very nice here. They are very open to helping you learn and helping you improve your work skills.

Q: How did you find out about the Students Commission?

A: Well, at first, it was because my teacher told me about the publications that they used to do. But then, when I went on to their website, all of the projects that they did for youth looked very interesting and I wanted to be a part of it.
