Taught young coders about coding
During the code camp, I assisted the camp teachers introducing the two fundamental language of website, HTML and CSS. Near the end of the camp, every student was able to build their unique websites. I really enjoyed guiding the young coders to explore the beauty of the complex programming world.

Full-time, overnight position with little off-days
Would not recommend for those who are not looking to go into the Education or child care industry. - must look after large group of international students with very minimum english speaking ability - typical hours 6:00-23:00 daily - developed strong team relationship - physically and emotionally exhausting
ProsFree Meals and Accomodation

Community Volunteer | Vancouver, BC | Mar. 7, 2016
A great opportunity to help students and gain valuable leadership skills
I was tasked with helping students complete a required project for new UBC students. I provided help on various components of the group project for the groups I was assigned to, and it was an experience I value.

Communication Specialist | Vancouver, BC | Feb. 21, 2014
Productive and efficient workplace
A typical day at work is productive and efficient, I learned how to work in a higher education institution. Management was knowledgeable and friendly. Co-workers were a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the job is accounting for all of the other faculties and department and the different ways they work.

Assistant | Kelowna, BC | Sep. 29, 2014
A good place to begin
Great opportunities to gain employment, but hard to stay in the same position for multiple years as a student. They like to offer the opportunities to everyone, so once you have completed your year, it is time for a new face.
