#ThisIsNMSA – Shekab’s NMSA Story
April 6, 2015 nmsayorku

If someone had told me a year ago that I would be writing this passage on behalf of New Marketing Students Association as an executive member and proud ambassador, I would have strongly considered it to be beyond the realms of possibility. Initially, I had introduced myself to NMSA; a non-profit, student run organization when I had stumbled upon the NMSA Facebook page, where I discovered that there were only a few days left to submit an application to become an executive member for the 2014-2015 year. With the utmost urgency, I completed my application and was luckily selected for an interview with the co-presidents, which ultimately lead to becoming NMSA’s Vice President of Human Relations for the 2014/2015 year.

Fast-forwarding till now, my experience as an executive member has been nothing less then gratifying. I have the privilege of working with many hardworking individuals, all contributing our collective effort to put NMSA at the forefront of student associations. All in all, our primary objective is to assist students with an intrigue for marketing in bridging the gap from the classroom to the professional world. This is done by connecting our club members with distinguished industry professionals at our industry events, informative workshops and social events, which are held through out the course of the year. Undoubtedly, the competitive landscape of todays job market forces students to strive to be a cut above the rest, and make the very most out of their years in University, and that is exactly where New Marketing Student’s Association steps in. Being a marketing student myself, I was absolutely sold on NMSA’s ultimate objective of contributing to student success, and the vast resources NMSA provides for its members.

Likewise, with our 2014-2015 year coming close to an end, it is safe to say that submitting that one application was one of the best decisions I have ever made, as it has culminated to great experiences, meeting awesome people, and new opportunities to pave way for student success. I am happy to say that I will be returning as Director of Communications for the 2015-2016 year, and I certainly look forward to doing it all once again.
