2017 CATHOLIC VOLUNTEER AWARD
In 2016 I was nominated for the Catholic Volunteer Award, but declined the nomination. I felt as one of the Co-Chair I would be a natural candidate for the Award, thus taking away from the good works of the team. As a Co-Chair, you're always seen doing everything in the spotlight and thus giving you an unfair advantage. I wanted to make sure my team had a chance at reconition. When I was nominated again in 2017, I happily expected the nomination as I felt I had paved the way for every member of the team to be nominated in 2016 moving forward. It was a great honor to be nominated twice. Best part, I was able to see one of my favourite principals again, Mariah O'Rielly.
