Congratulations to Chimoa for winning this month’s student of the month award! We had a conversation with Chimoa about all things Student of the Month, Conestoga College, and achievements she’s most proud of. Here’s what she had to say:
- What made you apply for Student of the Month?
I was motivated to apply for the Student of the Month by my friends who saw my grades and were really impressed. In my Level 1, I had 6 A+ and 1 A and this inspired my friends to do better in their studies.Prior to that, I had not heard about the Student of the Month award and I am glad I listened to them.
- Why did you choose Conestoga College for your studies?
I needed a school that had my exact choice of course in a beautiful city filled with fun experiences. Conestoga ticked on my boxes!
- How does leadership and community involvement factor into your day-to-day?
In my course of study, especially my Level 2, I have had to lead a few teams for projects and assignments. Even though challenging, these tasks were very impactful. With my job as a Social Media Ambassador at Conestoga, it has allowed me to interact with more people in the college community. I have helped some current and intending students in providing solutions and answers to some college issues, cleared their doubts and encouraged them in their academics
- Are there any specific achievements you’d like to acknowledge?
So far, because of my background, I am so proud of myself for maintaining straight A’s in my Level 1 & 2. I am also proud to be the Student of the Month for CSI!
- What is a goal you have once you are graduated?
My goal for after graduation is to be the best person I can be while impacting the world positively and contributing my part to the communications and marketing industry with all the knowledge learned in my time at Conestoga.
