Hi everyone, my name is Haejo (Jo) Kim, and I’m currently studying physiology and psychology. My LAMP peer mentor with whom I still speak to this day, inspired me to step foot into this amazing program. I have transitioned from being a first year leadership committee member, Peer Mentor, Leadership Chair, LAMP 2.0 Co-Coordinator, Team leader, and finally to one of the Student Coordinators. Without LAMP, my university experience would have never been the same.
I was able to share my story with like-minded individuals while also making small differences in students’ lives. It served as a gateway for me to expand my experiences throughout the entire Student Success Centre: from being a Western Serves Network VP, Career Leader, Employer Relations Volunteer, participant in Leadership Education Program (LEP) and participant in Alternative Spring Break (ASB). I have watched LAMP grow rapidly over the years, and I can’t be more proud to be a part of this community. I am passionate about making this program available for everyone, and we are planning on expanding LAMP like it has never before. I am so excited to meet all of you and hear your unique stories.
