Meet Kaelyn!

Hey everyone! My name is Kaelyn Emslie, I am currently in my 3rd year of the Medical Radiation Sciences Program. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Learning Support Centre working as the first ever Student Success Mentor for Mohawk Athletics. My goal is to help all students, as well as work with student-athletes to acquire the skills and strategies to acquire success in your semester at Mohawk College! I am very eager to share my experiences and strategies with you! 

As a current student-athlete, I have really grown to enjoy the hectic lifestyle. I consider myself to be a hard worker in the classroom and I really benefit from time managing.  I believe that anyone with an extremely busy lifestyle can benefit from time management. Whether it be a student-athlete, or someone who is struggling to find balance between their school work, extracurriculars and other responsibilities. Not only does time management impact your school work positively, you gain a valuable skill that lasts a lifetime and have a sense of ease that you have enough time for all of your school work. 

After moving away from home, starting a brand-new program and becoming an athlete on the Women’s Varsity Volleyball team, my life was presented with new challenges. I learnt along the way how to balance school with sport. I want to help you skip those harsh steps and help you time manage, study efficiently, build professional relationships with your professors and peers, as well as help you stay motivated in the online learning environment. I strongly believe that when we treat our education professionally and take the time to go over tough concepts, it greatly enhances the overall experience of being a college student and/or athlete.  


Meet Nicte!

Hello! My name is Nicte. I am in my fourth semester of the Business- Marketing program and this is my first semester working at the Learning Support Centre as a Student Success Mentor. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience, so that you can achieve all your personal, academic and professional goals. 

Learning is something I enjoy very much, maybe that’s why I am a fast learner! The truth is that we never stop learning, there are always new things that you discover through the years, experiences and of course- school.  And I am happy to share all my tips and tricks so that you can enjoy it too!  

As a part-time worker and an International Student, I understand that college can be a lot sometimes- there are always challenges, unexpected situations or other real-life situations, but I am here to help you and guide you through your college experience! 


Meet Chelsea!

Hello! My name is Chelsea Granatier. I am in my second semester of Pre-Health Science and this is my first semester working with the Learning Support Centre as a student success mentor. I can’t wait to experience Winter 2021 alongside you all.  

I have always had a passion for learning. Being in and out of post-secondary, changing programs and attending college later than most has given me a wealth of experience to share. Organization and studying are my favourite things and are vital to success as a student. I am so excited to share some incredible tips and tricks with you.  

I know that the many changes this year with online learning may seem daunting to some and I’m familiar with the struggles of time management as I work on the side. With these things in mind, my goal is to provide you with support and encouragement along your journey at Mohawk College. 


Meet Kathy!

Hello! Nice to meet you, my name is Kathy Huynh, I am in my 6th semester of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program. This is my first semester working with the Learning Support Centre as a Student Success Mentor. I’m extremely excited to be able to work alongside a fantastic team and help aid you in your journey to success here at Mohawk College. 

I have always been into learning new things and exploring different opportunities and paths. My interests lie in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related activities and space! I believe knowledge is power and by enhancing your skills and trying new things you will learn to grow and find the right path for you. While academics and good grades are key to a successful student life, meeting new people and taking care of yourself is just as important and the recipe for success as an individual! As my favourite role model Chris Hadfield said, “Focus on the journey, not on arriving at a certain destination.” 

With our environments changing and our daily schedules getting busier, it can be challenging to stay up to date with everything and to prioritize what needs to be done. That’s why we’re here to help! From staying organized to managing multiple tasks, I’d be happy to share my tips and tricks and help you succeed to achieve your goals. I can’t wait to lend a helping hand and see you grow!  


Meet Rileigh!

Hi everyone! My name is Rileigh Shiplo. I am in my second semester of the Paralegal Program and my first semester working with the Learning Support Centre as a Student Success Mentor. I can’t wait to meet you all and help you navigate through your semester!  

As someone who has been through university and now college, I have a lot of experience and knowledge to share with you all. I have always enjoyed learning, but I had to figure out what learning and studying methods worked best for me in order to be successful through my university career. Now, with virtual learning I have had to adapt my style to maintain my success through college. I have learned how to stay focused through online classes, methods to avoid procrastination and how to stay organized.  

It can be stressful and difficult to figure out what works for you, especially with the changes a virtual semester brings on, but that is why I am here to help! I am excited to share with you what I have learned and help you all succeed as well.
