Passion without objective knowledge is a recipe for disaster.
I have recently changed the outlook of this blog. Shinerama at UC has become very dear to me, but I have come to the realization that we can grow within the University of Toronto even more! In January, I was thrilled to receive the news that I had been choosen as a National Campaign Advisor (it’s a big deal!!), where I’ll be assisting Campaign Directors across the country in...

Shinerama Bottle Drive
I was looking for something in my basement when I came across my father’s collection of bottles for return. It got me thinking, a simple task for Shinerama. Bottle drive is born! I will even come pick them up from you! (within reasonable distance of course of Toronto area) SO BOTTOMS UP PEOPLE!

I'm almost halfway to my goal ...
It’s easy for most of us to go over to Starbucks and get our caffeine fix. Or to treat ourselves to a lunch out plus dessert once in a while. In addition, a lot of us pay a phone bill of $50 plus a month. So why not make a small donation this time around knowing you will make a difference?

Welcome the Faculty of Physical Education and Health to the UofT Shinerama...
Shinerama at UofT has always been a UC thing, with maybe a few other colleges participating from time to time. I’d love to see it become a campus wide thing. Along with reaching my dream goal this year of $14 000, I would love to expand Shinerama across the UofT campus so one day it isn’t a UC thing anymore but a UofT thing. It’s going to start with small steps. I took...

Taylor Swift Tickets
Last November, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Taylor Swift tickets for her eventual sold out show in Toronto this July for her Speak Now World Tour. Unfortunately, I am now unable to attend and am looking to sell these tickets. These tickets are selling online for over $300 a pair. I could easily make a profit but I have a different idea. I am selling these tickets at the...

National Shinerama Conference
Going into this weekend, I did not expect what I came out with. At first, not going to lie - it was a little intimidating. Here I was thrown into a new city by myself surrounded by so many unfamiliar faces, and I was to spend the next two days with these people. And hello Toronto? How are we the largest city in Canada yet only managed one delegate? Step up your game. Though it was good to know...
