Khalil for Concordia

My experience as a member of the Concordia Undergraduate Psychology Association was amazing, fun and rewarding. This was made possible because of a great team dynamic and organization. I strongly believe that an enthusiastic leader is what makes the difference in order for a group to work well together, achieve goals and make a difference.

As President of CUPA, Khalil Haddad was our leader. He is one of the most organized, hardworking and dedicated people I have had the opportunity to work with. He was truly invested in every aspect of the association and made things run very smoothly.

What impressed me the most was Khalil’s dedication from the very start. He made sure that he had the best team possible by campaigning, recruiting and educating his friends and colleagues on how they could make a difference. He translated this enthusiasm to me and got me on board.

Another quality that is extremely important in a great leader is an intrinsic sense of responsibility. Khalil possesses this quality and therefore puts his passion, energy and effort into absolutely everything he does. He does not stop until he knows that we as a team are providing the best opportunities to the students we are representing.

Last but not least, Khalil is an excellent team leader because he takes everyone’s opinion to heart and works with us as opposed to above us. He is an inspiring team member, student and friend, and I am confident that he will be an important asset as president of the Concordia Student Union along with team Action!
