My name is Chelsey Girvin. I am a Biology/Pre-Veterinary Major from Waynesburg University in the United States. I was given the opportunity this year to study abroad at Christian Heritage College and be part of the student representative council on campus. My responsibilities and obligations on the council included the following: attending all meetings as a full speaking and voting member – providing input into decisions that affect international students and the wider student body.

I also participated in various community events such as lunch hangs (lunch time community hang outs – where I would help prepare meals which brought the students together). There was also campus chapel, where I was a greeter. One event was the CHC Ball, I assisted with the table arrangements and decorations of the venue so students and staff could enjoy themselves.
One thing I’ve learnt while serving as a representative included interpersonal skills. Through my SRC experience, I strongly believed I developed better relationships towards people in terms of gratitude, communication, friendliness, and optimism. This along with other experiences are essential in any community environment.
One challenge I faced, was exercising my leadership skills. I challenged myself by clearing my mindset, stepping back, and allowing everyone in the council to deliver their individual responsibilities and empowerment. This had a positive effect on me, as I was able to make decisions towards a shared vision.
We did it!
Overall, my involvement in the SRC has given me the opportunity to improve personally, build relationships with people, serve the community and represent students on a personal level which benefited them.
