Felipe Izquierdo

BCom Student Represents Canada at One Young World Summit in Bangkok

Felipe Izquierdo is a 4th year BCom Finance student who takes social entrepreneurship to heart. He was selected to attend One Young World Summit in Thailand’s capital city on the week of November 18 to 21. “Attending the One Young World summit in Bangkok is like being able -- in only a few days -- to travel the world and learn about the global problems directly from youth leaders that are working at the front lines in their countries and communities,” he says. Felipe was able to discuss solutions and projects about human rights, the environment, global business and entrepreneurship, peace, security, leadership and government with other student leaders. He admits that the atmosphere in a room where people from 196 countries all come together to be united by humanity and passion for tackling world issues is overwhelming and “hard to put into words.” He had the opportunity to attend as part of the student organization Enactus uOttawa.

International Student Coach, Jia Li, shares his experiences

Being a Coach, I see international students every day. We make individual or group appointments to talk about anything and everything.  A student may show up with a specific question about a course or can learn about student sport clubs. I am like their “Google” because I answer their questions and refer them to resources that can help them. Read more ›

The power of CO-OP: Why Ottawa companies should hire a CO-OP student

Being a CO-OP student at the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa, it doesn’t take much deep thought to realize all of its benefits.

I have gained confidence, new skills and took care of my own projects during only my first work term. Students usually do four work terms during the 4-5 years of their studies and even get the option of finding a work term abroad! Can you imagine all of the possibilities? Read more ›
