Hi everyone! My name is Allison and I am a first year student at Western University. Initially, I founded Auxilium to help with the lack of support during learning in the pandemic. From then, it has become so much more than that: social networking, mental health resources, and more. I love helping people and I hope to impact even more individuals. Outside of school and Auxilium, I dance, debate, do photography and listen to music!
Hi! My name is Jasmin and I am in grade 12 at Merivale High School. I joined Auxilium to be able to give back to my community during a time where many educational programs were limited. When Allison reached out with this initiative, I knew that it was something I wanted to be a part of! Some of my hobbies include reading, baking, travelling and debate. A fun fact about me is that I broke 4 bones in my foot in sixth grade.
