Brianna is going into her 3rd year of the Child and Youth Care program. Brianna loves helping people; she believes helping is in her nature. Her passion for helping others and meeting new people is the main reason why she chose to become a Peer Mentor. Brianna also thought that this was a great way to get involved on campus. Brianna had an amazing first year at Sheridan; however, she understands how scary and nerve-wrecking transitioning into post-secondary can be. She wants to help other students feel comfortable, supported and ready to succeed so that they are able to get the most out of their time at Sheridan! Brianna’s advice for first year students would be to enjoy your time at Sheridan; it can fly by very quickly. Also, make sure that you utilize the services available, they are made for students and can be EXTREMELY helpful in being successful not only at Sheridan, but in your future as well.

Michael is going into his 2nd year of the Police Foundations program. He is aware of the challenges a student must overcome, which only become tougher without the support of a Peer Mentor. He, thus, chose to become a Peer Mentor with Student Advisement to give students the support that they need. He believes that his own experience as a student has better equipped him to assist other students with their transition. As a student who struggled at the beginning of his first year, Michael urges all first year students to seek assistance from their Peer Mentor or the Student Services Centre (B230) if they are unsure of something so that we may help guide you in the right direction.
Fun Fact: Even though Michael enjoys learning and studying the criminal code, he also truly enjoys working on cars!
