Malika's Leadership at Ontario Tech
I have had experience as an executive member in OTAA, peer leader, peer tutor and have been pretty involved in various clubs and societies. In my third year, I founded a new club named "Desi Student Association" for all the students to showcase their cultures on a common platform.
I have work experience in payroll under the finance department. I have been working since 2020. My previous roles and responsibilities are available on LinkedIn. I took part in various case competitions in my university life and continue to do so. Each one had been very beneficial in learning something new. However, one of the most outstanding achievements was owning a bronze medal at ICBC in the Accounting stream.
Attend events and network. Networking is the key. Everyone said networking is vital to success in my first year, but I realized the importance only after seeing it. You can reach out to me anytime for any networking tips or tricks.
