"YI is like a home that helps me to gain a strong sense of belonging at YorkU. Being a part of YI provides me with opportunities to give back the community by mentoring and supporting international students. My favorite part of getting involved is that it offers me plenty of opportunities to not only meet new people to build personal and professional networks but also help me develop my leadership and interpersonal skills."
