This month, 18 students from the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering earned U of T Student Leadership Awards, which recognizes leadership, service and commitment to the university. Among this group were four outstanding ChemE students.
Brohath Amrithraj (ChemE 2T1+1) recognized the lack of international engineering student services and founded an organization called International Transition to fill this gap and aid students.
John Anawati (ChemE PhD 2T2) was the Head Coordinator for the inaugural Chemical Engineering Graduate Mentorship Program, which works to build departmental community, improve student mental health and reduce isolation.
Paul Chen (ChemE PhD 2T2) has led several community-building and science-outreach activities. As Co-Chair of Massey Grand Rounds, he helped foster the biomedical and health communities at Massey College. Through his roles with Science Rendezvous and “I Am a Scientist,” he hopes to show kids that, regardless background, a career in science is possible.
Emily MacDonald-Roach (ChemE 2T1+PEY Co-op) was Co-Founder and Co-President of Brew of T, the University of Toronto Homebrewing club. She also held multiple leadership roles in Skule Nite, the Engineering Sketch Comedy Musical.
