(Being an RA was) the best decision of my life. I made strong connections with my residents, met coworkers who share my common interests, and most importantly got the best opportunity to give back to the community.Â
As a Senior RA I can definitely say that I felt proud leading a team of such talented and great individuals. Over the course of my two years as an RA I can definitely say my favourite memories included hosting seasonal programs and going over move-in week!Â
Overall, I was able to improve upon skills such as leadership, conflict facilitation, and active listening, which I will carry with me throughout my professional life. Finally, I have loved being part of such an active community of people who call Monashee home. I truly do encourage you to apply to Residence Life and watch it change your life!Â
This job has brought me so many great opportunities and skills that I will be happy to apply to all my future endeavours. My favourite thing about being an RA is the sense of family that comes with the job. Every step of the way I feel as though I have help and guidance. As a Senior resident advisor I love being able to be the person who gives back by doing that for my RA team!Â
