In order to be involved in the community around me, I joined multiple volunteering groups and organizations throughout my high school career. My high school journey started out with my selection into the school’s cricket team in my junior year, and lasted up until I graduated. This experience allowed me to represent my school on multiple occasions; it helped me in building positive relationships with peers, and in improving my leadership skills through my captaincy. This experience also gave me a taste of what it is like to make decisions under pressure, and how to coordinate effectively with others in difficult situations.
Furthermore, I also had the opportunity to start a cycling club in my junior year. The management and organizational requirements for this club played a vital role in developing my leadership and communication abilities. For instance, the constant interaction with peers and teachers forced me to move out of my comfort zone and taught me how to communicate effectively.
Additionally, in my final two years of high school, I enrolled my high school in the University of Waterloo electric vehicle contest. This was a huge task to take on as it required approval from school superiors, a large amount of money, a facility, and tools to build a fully functional electric vehicle. However, as big as the challenge was, through my determination and commitment, I single-handedly organized a team, attained sponsors, budgeted expenses, purchased products, and got school approvals. This experience allowed me to further enhance my communication skills through the interaction with students, teachers, and store owners. This also helped develop my organizational, time management, team work and problem solving skills immensely. In 2016, I successfully completed this challenge, and I am proud to say that my high school was the first in all of GTA to participate in this contest. Our team won the rookie of the year award, presented by the University of Waterloo.
In my final year of high school, I was elected to be my school’s ambassador for a school wide tournament, MIST (Muslim Interscholastic Tournament). My job was to recruit students into their participating categories based on specific criteria, to create school banners and slogans, to guide students through the selection process, and to generate team lists for the school. This opportunity helped enhance some of my pre-existing skills which include communication, organization, networking, collaboration with others, and most importantly, I made life long friends through my positive interactions with peers on a daily basis.
