Our MacEngaged project allowed us to transfer our knowledge from the course and actively apply it; this was an unique opportunity that had not only enhanced our learning of the course material, but had also enriched our undergraduate experience.
Thanks to MacEngaged I turned learning about the neuroscience of mindfulness mediation into an entrepreneurship venture. I am starting a mindfulness therapy practice called Take 5. Soon, I will be offering mindfulness-based therapies in the Hamilton and Niagara area. I never thought one project could make such an impact on my future!
Being a part of MacEngaged was a very unique and creative learning experience for me. Not only did MacEngaged give me the opportunity to get involved in the community, but it also enhanced my University experience. The most rewarding part of the whole experience was that I got the chance to make a positive impact in the community through my project. After MacEngaged, I knew that I wanted to participate in more initatives which involve community engagement and creative learning.
