‘I was thrilled to be a part of the Fennell Campus Renewal’

After graduating in 2010 I had the privilege of serving as the president of the Mohawk Students Association for one term. During my single year of service, I witnessed more revitalization, renovation and rejuvenation than the college had seen since the day it was built. I was thrilled to be a part of the Fennell Campus Renewal by organizing student input and feedback sessions, sitting on campus renewal committees and participating in a few ribbon cuttings and grand openings before my time was up.

For the Love of Country Music

guitar bootsProfessional chatterbox, a girl with the gift for gab, radio dj. I’ve been called a number of things in my time here on earth but that last one is definitely my favourite! Since last I blogged, a serious advancement has been made on the career front for one Kat Cullen. I am currently working as an on air personality and promotions director for KX 94.7fm, the #1 country radio station in all of Canada and the #1 radio station of any genre in Hamilton. Wow that feels good to say! This has certainly been a dream job in the making and has taken quite a few years of work to get here. I have bounced around the wonderful world of career-land trying to sort out exactly where I wanted to end up. I worked in television for many years (first in reality tv, then news, then lifestyle) all while keeping my part-time job in radio. Continue Reading

Running 5k every day on the other hand, is a tried and true way to build up stamina, encourage muscle memory and increase lung capacity. The effort we make each day makes reaching the finish line a whole lot easier. Continue Reading

Those mandatory 40 hours of volunteer work in high school must have really worked on me. It instilled in me a lifelong passion for helping others and taught me the value of donating ones time to a good cause. (Actually I think my parents may have instilled that in me a bit earlier since I graduated with over 200 volunteer hours, but let’s give some credit to the high school program anyway!) For me, a big part of leading a well rounded life is sharing that life with others. I figure if I have enough joy, love and energy to get me through a day I can use the leftover joy love and energy to help others. Continue Reading
