There are certain things that happen annually in life of a student. The lively orientations held by colleges and universities, awkward and funny ‘getting-to-know-you’ activities on the first day of class, midterms, and final exams. Although, just because something is part of your everyday routine, doesn’t mean that it isn’t special. To find out exactly what that means, take a look at the Enactus SLC team and what they accomplish annually in the name of charity and community.
Each year Enactus SLC launches initiatives aimed at improving the community, from teaching children financial literacy, to constructing a greener community. Every new semester brings fresh faces and new ideas about how to do more “good” in our own little part of the world. But it doesn’t end here. There is one particular ritual that most students never really get to see, except for a lucky few. Every year, a body of like-minded people gather to share accomplishments and create memories that will last a lifetime. This is the Enactus Canada Regional Competition, to be held in Mississauga this year.
It isn’t all fun and games of course, hard work must be done in the community before teams have anything to present. The presentations consist of endless hours of script writing, arranging PowerPoints, techies tending to machines that everyone can only hope will perform on the big presentation day, and of course many nights spent practicing until the script becomes a part of everyone’s heart. All of this time and effort to show our peers the impact we have on our community.
There is one other thing that those lucky enough to attend must do before they step on the bus and begin their journey; create a spirit video. A statement of their intent to show just how much energy and pride has been put into what they have done over the past year. It is on this note that we would like to present to you the 2019 Enactus SLC Spirit Video, and ask you, do you think you have what it takes to be in our 2020 feature? Will you take the journey with us lucky few?
