Welcome to the Trafalgar Peer Mentor Page!

I am going into my 2nd year of the Journalism program. I chose to become a Peer Mentor because as a part of this team, I have the opportunity to help students successfully transition into post-secondary life. My advice for students going into their first year is to not let your nerves get in the way of you trying new things. Remember, you are all starting a new chapter in your life. Make the most of your time here at Sheridan!
Fun Fact: I had a short story published in a magazine in high school!
I am going into my 2nd year of the Honours Bachelor of Film and Television program. Having gone through this transition last year, I understand just how stressful starting your first year can be. I chose to become a Peer Mentor because I wanted to help with making that transition easier for you all. My advice for first year students is to get involved on campus. Getting involved on campus is a great way to meet new people and make lasting memories!
Fun Fact: I can count to 99 in Mandarin
I am going into my 3rd year of the Honours Bachelor of Game Design program. I chose to become a Peer Mentor because I was in first year once, so I understand the stress and pressure new students are faced with. As a Peer Mentor, I look forward to helping ease these worries as much as I can. My advice for first year students is to remember that everyone in first year feels just as nervous as you! Getting involved in the Sheridan community and making new friends will enhance your first year experience!
Fun Fact: I develop my own video games in my spare time.
I am going into my 2nd year of the Honours Bachelor of Craft and Design program, specializing in Glass. One of the reasons I chose to become a Peer Mentor is to help new students have the smoothest transition into life at Sheridan. The first year of college can be stressful and confusing, especially with navigating around a large campus like Trafalgar. I want to help students find and access the resources they need, while also increasing awareness of the many services Sheridan has to offer. My advice to first year students is to never be afraid to ask questions. Know your rights, as well as your responsibilities and don’t be afraid to utilize the resources that are available here for you.
Fun Fact: I’m from a rural area in Nova Scotia and I’ve been home schooled my whole life until college.
I am going into my 2nd year of the Journalism program. I wanted to become a Peer Mentor because I am passionate about helping people. During my first year, my Peer Mentor helped me a great deal with transitioning into college life. She made starting a new school in a new city less scary. I want to help new students the same way my Peer Mentor helped me. My advice to first year students is to not be afraid of stepping outside your comfort zone. Joining a club, going to open mic nights and participating in campus events is a great way to get involved on campus and to meet new people! Make the most of your time here at Sheridan!
Fun Fact: I also work as a Residence Services Representative at the Trafalgar Residence!
