Left: This is William and I at our first interview in office with CJSR 88.5FM. We received media training earlier that morning and we got to test our skills right away in a casual interview regarding this upcoming term. A quick shout out to Matt Hirji for interviewing us and Simon Yackulic for the media training.
Right: "We're standing on the shoulders of giants." This is a common theme mentioned during Exec retreat when talking about the history of the SU. Many great people have taken office over the years and it's humbling to join the ranks of all these SU greats. The tradition is to write your name on the wall after completing your term. Despite all the activity that comes with the job, it's reassuring to remember that so many have come before us, sat in the same spots, and survived their terms. I look forward to continuing this tradition when my term ends. I hope to do as good a job or better than those before me.
Other things learned today: more negotiation skills, how much I enjoy Exec Committee meetings (we don't get to see each other as often as you'd think), and appreciating team work, in general.
