Video Shoot – Harry’s Saint Mary’s Story: Be Connected
As an International Student-Athlete, traveling away from home to pursue an education and athletics can be tough. With the right support, we can excel. I always promote the importance of family and supporting one another’s dreams. Through various HarryCares Initiatives, I can share my story and my experiences to benefit others. There will always be a struggle, but when you and others believe in yourself, you can achieve anything.

HARRYCARES moment: During the International Students’ Orientation Week.
Giving those positive vibes, as usual, to new students and paving ways for others… As an International Student-Athlete, I have many lessons learned that I pass on to others so that they can be prepared as they come to face similar lessons. #HarryCares words of the day: “Learn how to prioritize; if I can do it, you can, YES YOU CAN.” #OneUniversityOneWorld

I paid a visited to Harbour View Elementary School to support to Dylan Cooper, one of the kids that I worked with during the Autism Summer Camp in 2012, and congratulate him on his Grade 6 Graduation. I have continued to maintain a good relationship with Dylan, his brother; Brendon and his mother, Michelle. It was a great feeling reconnecting with them all!

INSPIRING ATHLETES PANEL: On a sunny Tuesday afternoon; four Student-Athletes (Including myself) and two staffs of Saint Mary’s University left for Dartmouth High for an Inspiring Athletes Event. This event started at 1:50pm and ran uptil 3:10pm. The Student-Athletes gave a brief orientation of what to expect in the University and also, possible ways of overcoming adversities or obstacles that are inevitable as Student-Athletes. After the brief presentation from the Saint Mary’s staffs and athletes, the panel was open for discussions. We posed questions to the students and they did the same. It was a very memorable event for us all as we shared our experiences by telling our personal stories to the students and staffs of Dartmouth High. I am fortunate to represent my family, friends and Saint Mary’s University as an inspiring leader and athlete at this event and I am appreciative of the continuous and lasting relationship I have developed with the Halifax and Dartmouth community.
