2021/22 Branch Teams
Our IgNITE Branches brings everything IgNITE has to offer to their own communities. This allows us to expand beyond regional boundaries! As a branch they are responsible for a variety of duties based on their status as either a dependent (tier 1) or independent (tier 2) branch. Tier 1 branches are branch new branches that are learning the lay of the land, whereas tier 2 branches are experienced teams that expand to their own executive teams. However, the main goal stays consistent across branches: Promotion and Recruitment. Each branch director will act as the 'President' for their school, taking leadership and responsibility over goals set out by headquarters. Branch can host their own events, run their own socials and do everything they think is best to build a strong IgNITE community at their school.

I joined IgNITE mainly due to my love for science and my interest in research. I think IgNITE is such a great way to give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and gain valuable research skills that they otherwise may not have the chance to do. Throughout my role, I hope to make connections with likeminded individuals and gain even more experience in the research field!
"As a proactive and committed individual passionate about helping students, I joined IgNITE to help the organization in its mission to promote the accessibility of medical research. Most importantly, while helping students, Ignite provides a good opportunity for its members to network with like-minded individuals."
I joined because it is an amazing way to gain research experience before ever stepping into a lab! Making connections in the medical & research field is a necessity as we are all able to foster relationships which creates a network for us to get help when needed! I hope to gain that network of connections as well as gain the experience to enable me to achieve a research position. IgNITE has so much to offer and I want others to realize what a great stepping stone this organization is!

Becoming an Ambassador for IgNITE is such an exciting opportunity for me. IgNITE has inspired me as it gives opportunities for skill and research development to students. I relate to this as I am first in my family to attend university especially in a STEM field where it can be more challenging to navigate alone. I hope to gain more connections and promote a non-profit that will push me further to step out of my comfort zone and meet amazing people!
As a young science student, I am always eager to learn more about the medical and research field.

I want to meet new people and make valuable connections and even participate in the case competition myself. I want to meet new professors and other members of IgNITE and expand my network and make new connections.
I joined IgNITE after an amazing experience from being a past competitor. I've had the chance to view just how much knowledge can be obtained and all the accomplishments that can be achieved through the competition. IgNITE gives students the basic tools they need to be successful in research, as well as their academic career. I'm excited to join the ambassador team and be able to unlock this opportunity and inspire others to take part in IgNITE.
I chose to become an ambassador for igNITE because of its goal. As an undergraduate student, I myself found it very difficult and intimidating to find research opportunities. IgNITE really aims to make research as an undergraduate student much easier through mentorships and networking opportunities. I hope to introduce IgNITE to a wide audience, as it is such an amazing opportunity! Along the way, I hope to meet many like-minded individuals interested in research and science.

I joined Ignite because I wanted to be able to join an organization or a club that was related to my major. As a health science student, I hope to get valuable exposure in my field and hope to learn more about what I can do in research through Ignite.
Research is a field I have always been interested in. To become part of an organization where research is the core focus and where I will be able to make connections with other students who are also very passionate about the scientific world truly appears to me. I also love working with social media, so this would be a dream position where I would be joining my love for research and social media. I am also very interested in developing broader connections. Since I moved to Canada, I had to leave
"I have always been interested in research, but never had a clue as to how or where to start. When introduced to IgNITE, I just knew that this was the stepping stone I needed. IgNITE is the perfect opportunity for me to gain experience and to connect with other like-minded individuals. I look forward to helping others who are in the position I once was to discover research opportunities through this role."
The reason for which I would like to get involved with IgNITE is because I believe in giving students the opportunity to explore the field of research.

After looking for numerous research jobs myself, I realized there were barely any student opportunities for undergraduate students like me, that's when I came across IgNITE. IgNITE provides students with research experience and tips, it also allows individuals like me to work with new people to promote student research. I can't wait to be a part of this amazing community!!
I joined the IgNITE team to make research and mentorship opportunities more available to high school students. Over the years, we have had extremely meritorious achievements in the field of science, but a lot of work still has to be done. I believe that the students have the potential to do great things, we just need a start. By involving students and giving us a platform, the IgNITE competition not only helps build the students intellect, it helps build communication and interpersonal skills
When I came across IgNITE I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to take part in this established organization and expand my knowledge in both of my passions.

I joined IgNITE to inform my school community about the amazing opportunities IgNITE provides in terms of scientific research. I look forward to not only promoting events featuring doctors and members of the scientific community, but also learn more about different research fields. As an IgNITE ambassador, I hope to become more familiar with scientific research. Also, I intend on practicing and mastering effective communication with large groups of people on various online platforms.
I liked that the case competition promotes innovation and creativity in STEM. As a participant of last year's case competition I understand and value the collaborative, organizational and communication skills myself and my teammates developed by the end of our IgNITE journey. Although we did not make it very far in the competition the experience alone was extremely fulfilling. Afterall, many of today's discoveries began with a few people who decided to think outside of the box.
I joined ignite to connect with my community in a meaningful way and to utilize this unique opportunity to help educate students and encourage them to apply their interests and achieve their full potential. If I could achieve one thing as an Ambassador, I would want to play a critical role in motivating students to engage with the scientific community whilst refining their skills in a way that is both enjoyable and educational.
I joined IgNITE because I realized what an amazing opportunity it provides students with. I feel that people often shy away from research because they don’t know where to start or they don’t have experience.

As an ambassador, I am honoured to be able to contribute something to the greater good, such as recruiting someone who will influence the future of medicine.
