We are so excited to present to you McGill Women in Leadership Students’ Association‘s very own Co-President Serisha Iyar on Feb.18th as the next leadership spotlight in our Snapchat “Day in the Life” feature!

“Hi Everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, I am currently in my final ~U3~ year at McGill majoring in Political Science with a minor in World Religions. Tune in to our Snapchat for a behind the scenes look at the MWIL executive team as we prepare for our upcoming annual Trailblazers’ Testimonies Conference. You can also check out the work I do on the weekends (outside of chilling in Club McLenz) with Pre – Before you leave and The Mosaic Institute via UofMosaic at McGill. Join me for very hilarious snaps that no one but me laughs at, and watch as I run around in this beau-ti-ful MTL weather on a Saturday instead of sleeping in. See you then!”

A Day in the Life with Helen Ogundeji

Tune in this Thursday February 2nd for our first Snapchat Takeover of 2017 headlined by Helen Ogundeji, President of the Sociology Students’ Association of McGill University.


My name is Helen Ogundeji and I am a Sociology major, Philosophy and Social Studies of Medicine double minor, and a double Aries! I am currently president of the Sociology Student’s Association where we aim at connecting soci students though events as well as offering services for those in need. Additionally, i am VP Internal of the Black Students’ Network of McGill where I write the super fun, award-winning listservs. I am currently in the middle of planning a Symposium for black student’s groups across Canada and creating somewhat of an internship program for black-owned businesses to work with McGill students over the summers. I am also a floor fellow for McGill residences at Carrefour Sherbrooke where I do my best to help foster a safe and comfortable community for first year students to live and hopefully have the best start to their time here at McGill. Lastly (I know, oh my god), I am a fellow with the UofMosaic at McGill Fellowship Program where, along with the rest of the McGill cohort, I help plan events and discussions related to various diaspora groups (this year we are focusing on colourism from an international perspective). Wow, anyway that’s me!”

A Day In The Life with Helen Lynn

Tune in this Friday, October 14th for our second Snapchat Takeover by Helen Lynn, a U3 Chemical Engineering major serving as the current president of POWE McGill:

“Hi everyone! My name is Helen and I’m from Calgary, AB (Westcoast!!!). My life currently consists of pretending to know how to code, showing up embarrassingly late to classes (who else has senioritis?) and, most importantly, being the president of a group called POWE! POWE stands for “Promoting Opportunities for Women in Engineering,” and we are one of the biggest and longest standing groups under the EUS. This Friday, I will be taking over MWIL’s Snapchat to take you through a typical day in my life. Tune in to visit the plasma lab with me for my plasma engineering class (at 8:30am, bright and early), then help me cheer on POWE’s soccer team for our first EUS sports game! Later on, join POWE for our “How to Linked-in” event co-hosted with the the Engineering Career Center, concluded by a fun night out at Blues Pub (where engineers go on Fridays to drown out their midterm sorrows). See you tomorrow!”

“Hi there, I’m Jill and I’m entering the final saga of Jill vs. McGill as this is (hopefully) my fourth and final year of undergrad. This Wednesday, I will betaking over MWIL’s Snapchat, where you can ride with me through the journey of more success (promise that will be my only DJ Khaled reference). Vicariously experience the 7th annual Anatomy & Cell Biology Undergraduate Lab Recruitment Luncheon (or just attend, there’s free food) where I will be presenting my experiences (the good, the bad, and the ugly) as an undergraduate researcher. If that doesn’t get you whipping out your smartphones, join me later at a meeting filled with MDs and PhDs where we will be discussing the implementation of a mental health service for the anatomy student body. Finally, get to know the rest of my council/family during our weekly MACSS meeting! See you Wednesday!”
