Introducing: Jenny Ma

Hi Innis, my name is Jenny and I am a third year Life Sciences student double majoring in Biochemistry and Neuroscience. This year, I have the opportunity to work as both a Front Desk staff member and a Programming Assistant of Events for Innis Student Life. As Programming Assistant, I promote upcoming events to Innis students through the Innislife eCalendar and the Innislife Facebook page. I am also the person you go to when you would like help planning and advertising a new event. So, feel free to shoot me a message on Facebook!

Having the opportunity to work in these positions this past year has really opened my eyes to the diversity within the Innis community. The many events, that are held to celebrate the diverse cultures within Innis, have built an inclusive environment that I am proud to be a part of. Innis has definitely made me feel welcome the past three years, and I hope it will for you too!

QUEER & TRANS STUDENTS OF COLOUR DISCUSSION: FAMILIES
