advice. Barnett embraces her leadership abilities and continues to help others best she can. As a medical radiation technology student at Fanshawe College, she’s determined to make a difference in the lives of others. 

“Being a student leader has helped me to gain a sense of pride and school spirit for Fanshawe College. These leadership experiences have allowed me to make new friends, gain valuable skills, and they have really enhanced my time as a student,” Barnett explained. “Most importantly they have allowed me the chance to create memories that I will cherish for years to come. I believe that all students should get involved to gain new skills, make new friends and improve their school community!” 

Barnett works as a residence advisor (RA) for residence students at Fanshawe, partly due to being inspired by an RA during her own time living in residence. She also works part-time as a peer tutor and volunteers at the Sharing Shop on campus weekly.  

The Sharing Shop is a volunteer-run service to provide fellow students in financial need. “Winning this award is recognition that I am making a difference in the Fanshawe community,” she said.  

When Barnett graduates she hopes to be a leader in improving inter-professional relations between healthcare providers to enhance patient care. Through her proven leadership on campus, she’s well on her way. 

Congratulations, Lauren!
