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.

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.

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 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.

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.
