Past Featured Ambassadors

Emily Evans
Emily Evans
I strongly believe that getting help with your mental health is just as important as getting help with your physical health. I wish it (Cam’s Kids) had been around sooner but our goal for the next few years is to support as many students as we can.
Shay Surujnarain
Shay Surujnarain
I’m so happy and honoured to be part of a team that supports students in so many schools. No matter what gender, age or race you are, Cam’s Kids is there for you, providing free resources that are accessible to anyone and everyone.
Tanya Gupta
Tanya Gupta
“Number one, Uxbridge (the Hicks’ family home) is very close to my hometown, and, number two, reducing the stigma around mental health is something I’ve always stood for,” says Tanya of the determining factors in her choice to get involved with Cam's Kids
Chey Scott
Chey Scott
Chey is “really proud” of her Cam’s Kids involvement, a feeling anchored in the founding and nurturing of a much-needed shoulder to lean on for post-secondary students across Canada.
Daelyn Carroll
Daelyn Carroll
“My mental health would have been in a worse place if I hadn’t joined Cam’s Kids when I did. Knowing there’s a supportive team that has my back on any given occasion is huge."
Nathalie Kashur
Nathalie Kashur
“I love that I can help in little ways, giving others tips and tricks on how they can get through this crazy year of school. I really do want to make a difference. Cam’s Kids has helped me realize how important that is to me."
Fatma Alobeid
Fatma Alobeid
“I had to push myself to make friends, to talk to people, which I wasn’t used to doing. In high school I knew everyone. I’m grateful I joined Cam’s Kids in my second year because it got me to open up and join other aspects of university life.”
Brett Harrison
Brett Harrison
"If I had never worked with Cam’s Kids, I might not be so open and aware with regards to mental health and anxiety. It has reduced the stigma in my eyes. Wherever I end up, I intend to bring Cam’s Kids with me and share the resources it provides."
Hannah Heldrich
Hannah Heldrich
“Cam’s Kids is a great community to be a part of. There’s a feeling of belonging. I hope other people learn about it. The experience has definitely changed my perspective and given me so much optimism about psychology and mental health.”
Grace Hammond
Grace Hammond
“When I came to Guelph I wasn’t sure I was going to join any clubs. I focus a lot on my schoolwork. I didn’t want to get off track but I thought ‘This is something I can do. I can still focus on myself while helping others too.’”
Joshua Kelly
Joshua Kelly
Alongside Sarah Mosher, Josh assumed a co-Team Lead role with Cam’s Kids. His motivation to grow the foundation’s presence at Trent anchored in his belief that people’s mental health deserves much more attention than it has been granted.
Christine Crowe
Christine Crowe
Christine's drive promises good things ahead for the Foundation’s already considerable footprint at Carleton. Her ambition lead her to secure one of three team lead positions at Carleton next year.
Josh Sahian
Josh Sahian
A first-year Sociology student at Guelph, the Toronto native stumbled upon Cam’s Kids the way many have and many will – at a university event where various clubs promote themselves and invite membership.
Leah McMunn
Leah McMunn
Now working towards her PhD in Chemistry, Leah sees Cam’s Kids’ role being to provide the same support she was looking for when she first arrived at the University of Ottawa.
Caitlin Morgan
Caitlin Morgan
“It’s the best thing I could have ever asked for. When (fellow Ambassador) Hailey (Stroud) said Cam’s Kids was coming here, I was like ‘Yup, I’m diving right in.’ I have ever since and I love it. It (Cam’s Kids) is more like family than a volunteer opportunity and that is why I jumped in with two feet. There was no hesitation. It was so natural and I knew so many people involved."
Adam Nash
Adam Nash
Majoring in criminology at Carleton University, Adam, acknowledging “my own history with mental illness and stuff,” says the “state” he was in before happening upon Cam’s Kids “wasn’t too great.” “Cam’s Kids was everything I was looking for at that moment,” says Adam.
Chad Robbins
Chad Robbins
“I would never have thought that something that started so small, something I could be a part of, would extend as far as it has,” says Chad, noting his Cam’s Kids work has been a point of pride for him since day one.
Olivia Anderson and Katie Young
Olivia Anderson and Katie Young
“I can always count on her (Olivia) and she can count on me. We’re a team and that lays down a good foundation for other students we work with.” Katie and Olivia are both natives of Uxbridge, Cam Hicks’ hometown and the vibrant beating heart of the Cam’s Kids movement which continues to help young people across Canada deal with anxiety issues.
Holly Todd
Holly Todd
I’ve struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember, so I was immediately like ‘Oh.’ I wanted something where I could use my own experiences to reach out to others, so it just seemed liked a perfect fit. I went online and applied to become an Ambassador after I checked out the website. I became an Ambassador, started going to meetings and it went from there.
Hillary Benoit
Hillary Benoit
As a Cam’s Kids Ambassador, and vice-president of the Cam’s Kids club started at St. Francis Xavier in early 2017, Hillary has been, and is, that “someone” for students dealing with stress-related anxiety. Her efforts speak to the core message at the heart of Cams Kids.
Kaley Madigan
Kaley Madigan
As a Cam’s Kids Ambassador, Kaley has fully brought in her penchant for “organizing things” serving her well as she plans to stay involved with the foundation at both Algonquin and the University of Ottawa.
Miranda Sarosi
Miranda Sarosi
Like many Cam's Kids Ambassadors, Miranda Sarosi's connection to both the organization and its work comes from deep personal experience. As both a childhood friend of Cam Hicks and his family, and someone who is no stranger to anxiety, becoming an ambassador was an easy choice.
Laura Alcorn
Laura Alcorn
It was a close friendship and connection to the cause that made joining Cam's Kids an easy choice for Laura Alcorn. Now, nearly two years since joining the organization as one of its first Ambassadors, the University of Guelph student continues to make a difference both on campus and among her peers.
Taylor Anderson
Taylor Anderson
Taylor Anderson was no stranger to the Cam's Kids organization when she began her studies at Carleton University. In fact, the Health Sciences student had known Cam Hicks personally after going to school together in their mutual hometown of Uxbridge, Ontario.
Bronwyn Bridges
Bronwyn Bridges
It didn't take long for Bronwyn Bridges to click with Cam's Kids. From the moment she heard about the organization's chapter at St. Francis Xavier (StFX) University in Nova Scotia, the sophomore Biology and Psychology student knew she'd found something special.
Vanessa Morgan
Vanessa Morgan
After offering Vanessa Morgan the opportunity to serve as national co-ordinator of Cam’s Kids, Linda Hicks advised her “to sleep on it” and let her know the next day if she accepted.
Braeden Whitehead
Braeden Whitehead
Queen's University in Kingston is the centre of Braeden Whitehead’s universe but Uxbridge will always be home – as close to his heart as his friendship with Cam Hicks.
Haley Roter
Haley Roter
Haley Roter wants to end the stigma around mental illness. As a Cam's Kids Ambassador, she is working to spread the word that people struggling with anxiety should be encouraged and accepted.
Kyle Stinson
Kyle Stinson
Kyle Stinson is a familiar name in the Cam's Kids family. As a veteran Cam's Kids Ambassador, the Ottawa University senior has given freely of his time, talent, and enthusiasm to a number of the organization's initiatives, and continues to serve as a mentor to many in the Cam's Kids community.

Ambassador Tips for Managing School Stress

Between project deadlines and exam preparations, the end of a post-secondary school year can be overwhelming. Add in part-time jobs, family events or social obligations and it's easy to see why student stress levels go up over the holidays.
