"I’ve made too many memes this year…"

My greatest opportunity this year
The greatest opportunity for me was learning to work within an independent student-led team and experiencing how it is to run an association with so many students.

The greatest obstacle I’ve tackled
The greatest obstacle for me was balancing the expectations of the board along with guiding a team of 6 committee members through the year. Since the COVID-19 pandemic has lasted longer than initially anticipated it was quite a challenge to keep everyone’s motivation up.

Best thing about my position
The fact that I get to work with every single team and on every single project.

Biggest learning lesson of the year
Most of all I learned how to put my foot down on certain issues. There are situations when opinions will diverge and attempting to reach a perfect compromise is both time consuming and does not lead to the best outcome. I had to trust my own intuition based on past experiences, and make a decision in order to speed up the process and in the interest of efficiency.

What makes ECE Students unique
The opportunity to try out some new and put into practice ideas that other associations on campus would shy away from. I would like to think that ECE manages to stay true to its original intention of fostering an entrepreneurial mindset, by encouraging both students within and outside the organization to take creative risks.
