DIGITAL CONTENT DIRECTOR
“You inherit real estate when you stay in line, can you even imagine living in my state of mind” (Rick Ross, 2012) is a line I live by when working at Real Estate Ryerson. RER has given me the opportunity to grow as an individual and as a professional in the industry. Being passionate in making sure the organization’s voice is well reached over various social media platforms gives me an excellent growth in experience and skill towards my potential career and future. At Ryerson University and Ted Rogers School of Management, my goal is to graduate with my head up high in my Real Estate Management Major and Marketing Minor, giving me the opportunity in working in either industry in my future. With Real Estate Ryerson, I hope to be known as one of the best Digital Content Directors that have been with the organization in their past 10 years. I hope you enjoy what we at Real Estate Ryerson have in store for the public as much as we do!

I genuinely enjoy critically contributing to Real Estate Ryerson; Particularly for the tremendous impact I get to make on connecting students with each other, and to those that they will one day succeed. No other student group on campus fulfils the opportunities that Real Estate Ryerson delivers to the students we stand for.  I truly believe passion the main ingredient to accomplish and excel at the most challenging goals.

VICE PRESIDENT / EVENTS
Student involvement has always been a strong passion of mine ever since I got into my high school’s business club. I really enjoyed meeting people and learning about all the other ways I can get involved in my community. Since then I have continued to foster my love of getting involved and giving back to the community. I did everything from volunteer work to event planning for an assortment of different and unique groups.
Going into university my passion for student involvement only continued to grow and I started getting involved with bigger and more interesting business groups. My field of study is Real Estate, the subject always fascinated me and I found it to be the most appealing of all the business disciplines. Fortunately, my interests eventually aligned and now I am the VP of Events for one of the top tier business student groups in all of TRSS, Real Estate Ryerson.
