Hey! I'm Nancy and I'm currently studying business at Wilfrid Laurier University. I have been involved with PUYO for over 3 years now. I'm super excited to be the Chairperson for Night it Up! this year and to see how I can make a bigger impact in the community!
Throughout my six years of working within Power Unit and Night It Up!, I was able to able to improve my skills working with others as an individual, as well as working with a team. I was also able to work with our external partners to ensure that the partnerships continue today, as well as into the future.
Since joining Power Unit Youth Org. in 2017 participating in the Night It Up! Night Market project I've had the great opportunty to work with many talented indivduals in a diverse mix of industries gaining insight and skills to apply to my personal and professional career. The organization provided me with countless opportunities to grow and discover, I am excited to see what the future holds.
I was first introduced to Power Unit when I was spontaneously invited to volunteer at Night It Up! in 2019. There, I found a community that was driven and committed to executing successful events and passionate about helping the community. I’m excited to be a part of this year’s NIU! Team as the Sales Director and to bring our vision to life!
Since initially volunteering for Night It Up! in 2016, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with amazing people and witness the effort that each participant contributes to bring this project to life year after year. Just as Power Unit has supported me in my growth, I look forward to doing the same for youth in the community to help them explore their capabilities and develop their leadership skills through teamwork and communication.
I am grateful for the skills I have developed throughout my years with PUYO. I have also developed excellent relationships with the talented team at PUYO and community members. To be able to create and maintain a big event like NIU! is not an easy task. I am always impressed by the work that the young leaders in our organization accomplish.
PUYO has given me opportunities to grow as an individual and I'm grateful to have been a part of NiU! for a long time. Each year, I'm always reminded by why I keep coming back - the team and the community support are simply marvelous, and the skills I've developed from being a part of PUYO are priceless. I'm incredibly proud of what the team is able to accomplish every year, and I look forward to a new chapter for Night It Up! this year.
Throughout my experiences working within PUYO and our flagship event Night It Up!, I have been able to grow, learn, and develop valuable skills all while getting to know my community. I am excited to see what the future holds as I am confident that, along with the rest of the organization, we will be able to achieve new heights together!
