Becoming YU End of Year Celebration 2024

We celebrated the end of another successful year of Becoming YU and Work/Study on Thursday, March 28th at the third annual Becoming YU & Work/Study End of Year Celebration event. The event was a wonderful opportunity to recognize and celebrate the achievements of Becoming YU students and coaches.

At the event, we presented the following awards:

Student-Coach of the Year: Prachi Sadhwani - Lead Recruitment and Campus Ambassador - AMPD

Honourable Mention for Coach of the Year: Tony Vo - International Student Success & Engagement Coordinator, Global and Community Engagement

Coaches of the Year:

Brenda Blondeau - Coordinator, Nellie Langford Rowell Library

Patrick Thibaudeau - Director, IT Innovation & Academic Technologies, UIT

Student of the Year:  Milena Jeremic - Communications & Marketing Assistant, UIT


The event also featured a panel of three employers and two alumni, where they spoke about the importance of transferable skills, in searching for and successfully landing a job. It was also an opportunity for students and staff to come together and celebrate the effort, commitments and accomplishments of the past year.

Becoming YU and the Career Centre would like to once again say congratulations to all the winners for their well-deserved awards. We would also like to thank everyone who attended and helped make the Becoming YU & Work/Study End of Year Celebration a success!
