I am most proud of being named Outstanding Grad after my BA.
When I completed my BA in 2015, I was informed that I had been nominated by multiple faculty members both for Outstanding Graduate in International Studies, and for Outstanding Graduate of 2015. After an interview with a panel of professors and university administrators, I was selected for both awards. To be named not only the top graduate in my field, but also out of my entire graduating class, was particularly meaningful to me for two reasons. Firstly, the nomination came from professors whom I highly respect. Secondly, the award is not a result of academic merit (although you must have First Class Honours to be eligible), but rather of contributions to campus and community life. I worked hard as an undergraduate, volunteering, being an officer of many societies, and a member of the honours college, and to have that work recognised as a contribution that would last after my stay at university was incredibly humbling.
