2nd Annual HarryCares Basketball Jamboree (2014)

October 17th-19th, 2014

The 2nd Annual HarryCares Basketball Jamboree rounded up on Saturday evening, 18th October, 2014 with a speech on the importance of maximizing opportunities, knowing the importance of the activities we are involved in and the opportunities that can be created from our participation. It was a jam-packed, fun-filled weekend: games, Leadership Talks, SAQ workouts, and a pizza party!

SMU Recruitment Campaign Ambassador

November 1st, 2013.

Saint Mary’s University (SMU) Recrutment Campaign: played my role as a SMU Ambassador for future students. Worked with JourneyMan Film Industry and Trampoline Branding Canada in order to ensure that this project was a success. The University has a lot of resource that current and prospective future students can benefit from and I am fortunate to have been an ambassador and positive example for all.

Be Supported. Be Influential. Be Connected. Be Your Potential.

SMU International Students’ Orientation Week

September 4th, 2013

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

Celebrating Education & Success

June 26th, 2013

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!

Video: A Peace Education Project

June 15th, 2013

I published a Peace Education Project that I did with Jerome Smith and Miguel Pink on Youtube. We research and conducted interviews all around Saint Mary’s University. The participants in this video are Student-athletes, Faculty/Athletic Deparment staffs and other students of Saint Mary’s University. All participants were fully informed about the purpose of this project in regards to our Peace Education class in 2011, it was ethical!  The founder of Peace Schools International, Hetty Van Gurp was our instructor in this course (Peace Education). All participant agreed to be interviewed and were giving the option to opt out if they wanted to. We (Jerome Smith and I) wanted to know what other people thought about PEACE, what they understood, experienced and would do if they were in the position to make peace?   PLEASE click on the link below and enjoy this fun project. 

The audio quality of this video is slightly above 65%. However, the project was a great cause.

CTV Halifax: AUS Video Shoot

I visited the YMCA this morning in order to demonstrate some basketball fundamentals to a youth and it turned out good. Great Video shoot this morning with a youth at the YMCA centre in collaboration with CTV, Atlantic University Sports and the HarryCares project – I’m appreciative of the opportunity given to me and the ability to share my experiences #HarryCares — at YMCA.
