CRRC Volunteers

Isioma Harriet Okonji (she, her)

Communications & Marketing


I am a 20yr old International student from Nigeria, currently in my final year studying Information systems and E-commerce. I originally moved to Canada in 2017 with my sister to complete high-school. I spend most of my time either reading, cooking, sleeping, at the gym, recording my podcast and binging reality tv shows. I have a keen interest in media and production as well as interviews which is why I take this placement opportunity with CRRC to heart. I spend a lot of time daydreaming of being in the media world and being engrossed in production and this opportunity I believe is a way for me to gain experience in any form. I am extremely appreciative of CRRC for this opportunity.

IMPACT Placement Student

Wacera is a fourth year student at Trent University pursuing a degree in International Development Studies and a minor in History. She has been a part of on-campus leadership throughout her time at Trent, focusing on creating and holding spaces for BIPOC students as well as planning events in celebration of these identities. She has held positions in the Trent African Caribbean Student Union (TACSU), Trent International Student Association (TISA), and Trent Central Student Association (TCSA). Wacera is interested in learning more about community support, mobilisation, and organisation, in gaining lessons on effective leadership in these spaces. She describes herself as a bit of a nerd and enjoys immersing herself in African history. Full of enthusiasm, she prizes moments of simple joy. She also appreciates people that make her think.

Victor Nwogu

Program & Event Support

IMPACT Placement Student

Victor is an international student from Nigeria who is currently in his third year at Trent University pursuing a nursing degree. Prior to attending university and immigrating to Canada in 2019, he served as head boy of his high school and participated in extracurricular activities, leadership training, and school contests. Since Covid, he hasn’t engaged too much in the leadership spaces because of the complexities of the period. This placement is crucial because it helps spark that fire. I’m interested in authentic leadership and in learning how to lead by example in my nursing profession and I believe that this placement is a step in that direction as well as a chance for growth, self-reflection, and self-improvement.
