Hello Founders! My name is Alyssa (she/her pronouns) and I am so honoured to be a Peer Academic Leader and assist you in this upcoming academic school year. After three years of doing Environmental Studies, I am excited to be entering into my fourth and final year. Although it is bittersweet, it is exciting to reflect on all the memories and experience I have gained in Founders College and the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change. One of the main reasons that I pursued an undergraduate degree in environmental studies was to further educate and fuel my passions in animal rights, environmental justice, social justice, and feminism. My experience in being a Peer Mentor Coordinator in Environmental Studies has given me the experience and confidence to assist many more students with a broader variety of concerns. In addition, I am president of a Founders affiliated club called Federazione Canadese Italiana! This experience has fortified my relationship to Founders, and I am eternally grateful for the home that Founder’s has become for my club and I. If you would like to know more about clubs, getting involved in extra circulars, and becoming involved in the greater York University community, please come talk to me and I will be happy to assist you in any and every way possible! I hope to help you in the advancement of your academics, university life, and overall success in completing your first year. I am always here to help you, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me! My office is located at 121D Founders College.  I am so excited to meet you!
