High school profile

As a leader at Vancouver College, Sean is deeply committed to service, honing his skills as a servant leader through his extra-curricular activities. Over three years on Student Council as class representative, PR officer and President, he organized events, planned youth group meetings and ran four-day school retreats. Sean maintained a 90%+ grade average for five years, and after a service trip to the Mexican border, launched a Social Justice Club. He enjoyed cross-country running and was Track Captain. Sean aspires to study Law as a stepping stone to working for Global Affairs or the United Nations. His end goal is to launch his own consulting firm, working in the areas of conflict resolution, negotiation and foreign affairs.

During his time at Corpus Christi College, Sean worked with peers to develop the Corpus Rec Society, which encourages students to take part in UBC intramural activities. He also served as the Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s College representative to the AMS (UBC Student Council). Sean was the only first-year student on the Corpus team competing in the University of Oxford’s Map the System global challenge, joining peers in the second class of the Circle of Fellows to study youth homelessness. He maintained this focus with the Giving Truck, helping to develop a successful proposal to the Push for Change Foundation which resulted in a $5,000 grant to Covenant House. Both of these projects were undertaken during COVID-19 restrictions which, despite the challenges, presented Sean with unique insights into how community can be created in the midst of a pandemic.

Sean is currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts – International Relations program at the University of Calgary. He plans to continue on to graduate studies and to become a lawyer in order to take a leadership role in Global Affairs Canada or the United Nations, with a longer-term goal of running his own conflict resolution negotiation and foreign affairs consulting firm.

Gabriella Alvarez will continue volunteering at L’Arche after graduation, as she will study psychology in the hopes of becoming a therapist. Corpus Christi strengthened her belief that this is the right path for her. Her mentorship and internship opportunities through the Jericho Counselling Centre enriched her education and was impactful in a number of ways. She speaks highly of the importance of having a successful woman mentor who is an experienced counsellor, saying it has enriched her life. Through the leadership program, she learned she is responsible for all aspects of her life and began to use tools taught in the course to become her best version of herself. The lesson she takes away from the Lion Series is “personal growth comes when faced with adversity.”

Raisa Jose

2018-2019 Winner
High school profile

Raisa is a three-time “Student of the Year” winner, Honours Society member, and Peer Mediator. Dedicated to social activism, Raisa participates in the Social Justice Club, Youth in Action, and Community Care and Reverence for Life events.

An accomplished performer, Raisa lends her talents to “Right Here, Write Now,” a fundraising musical that has successfully generated over $200,000 for local and international charities.

“Raisa comes from a family that creates and puts on fundraising musicals to help less fortunate people in third-world countries. They even took the show on the road to California ... This shows that she has a vision for change-making and social awareness.”

Update - Life after Corpus

Raisa Jose enjoys helping others and has an interest in social work and missionary work. In Leadership Class, when the instructor, Gabriel Pillay, issued the challenge “What are you waiting for?,” Raisa accepted that challenge and by the spring of her first year, she created The Giving Truck society at only 18 years old.

It is a project that aims to engage youth to provide help and support to those who are marginalized, vulnerable and hungry around the Lower Mainland. Through The Giving Truck, material donations such as food, clothing, inspirational cards and toys are distributed. In collaboration with a number of companies and organizations, Raisa is able to provide free services such as haircuts, sports activities, pet therapy, crafts and child-minding. The first activity in December 2018 engaged 60 youth to pack 100 care kits with notes for distribution in the Downtown Eastside.

This began a series of monthly activities engaging youth and encouraging them to become “change makers” through their activities with The Giving Truck. Corpus has helped her focus on her plan for the future. She discovered more about her skills and abilities through classes, volunteer events, and through the mentorship program. She enhanced her leadership skills and the one-on-one mentorship has guided her academic, career, and life journey. Participating in events helped her develop networking skills that she used to engage partners and sponsors for the activity of The Giving Truck.
