Bio: 
Hello! My name is Nasha, I am a young female citizen of Canada, residing in Ottawa, where I was also born and grew up. I am a 4th year student at the University of Ottawa, currently enrolled in the International Development and Globalization Honours program. I will be graduating at the end of 2016. I would love to volunteer abroad after graduation, or the upcoming summer, to get an idea of what it is like working "in the field" or so to speak; mostly I want to experience different ways of life, different people and cultures and draw inspiration from them. I have travelled with my family before, and on my own during a recent exchange to Europe, which has been a life-changing experience for me in many ways, and I want to harness that energy and drive to do more in my future. I am really passionate about exploring the world and getting to know of its diversity and experiences. I believe volunteering is a great way to combine this passion of mine, along with my passion to help and encourage others with my various capacities where they may need them. Ultimately I want to know and love people from around the globe and do what I can to make them happy, That is how I want to spend my time on Earth and I think this would be a good place to start.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have volunteered for a number of organizations working for a variety of causes, both at my university and in my community. Here is a brief summary: ==> Nyantende uOttawa Chapter, VP Admin position (January 2014 – December 2014) • Booking meeting times & locations; actively participating in meetings; taking meeting minutes and sharing them with members; sending out club-related information; and organizing events & fundraisers to support children going to school in the DRC. ==> WUSC uOttawa Chapter–Student Refugee Program, Events Coordinator (Fall 2014) • Attending and actively participating in meetings, fundraisers, WUSC workshops & events; planning and organizing recreational activities for committee members in an effort to support sponsored students from refugee camps world-wide. ==> Catholic Centre for Immigrants, Alternative Student Break Program with University of Ottawa's Community Engagement Program (February 2014 University Reading Week) • Planned & participated in an intensive week-long set of winter activities with newcomers to introduce them to Canadian culture and help them meet and network with different people for personal and professional purposes (CCI “Wintergration” project) ==> Children For One Another, Leading Member (Feb. 2012 – Dec. 2013) • Attending and contributing to weekly meetings, workshops, and other events • Learning and sharing Martial Rosenburg's “Non-Violent Communication” with all-ages • Occasional fundraising, raising awareness, etc. ==> Lisgar Environmental Action Force, Lisgar C.
