“I feel like it’s very progressive of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science to provide this unique position dedicated to international students,” says Badmos. “With my lived experience as a former international student, I look forward to providing valuable support to the students and the faculty.”

Badmos will be developing and providing transitional and ongoing support services specifically to international and/or racialized engineering students here at Queen’s. For now, though, Badmos encourages students to connect with her by email or to visit her in student services in Beamish-Munro Hall Rm. 300.

“There’s never too much support, and I’m here to support,” says Badmos. “If students are just looking for someone they can talk to, someone who can help answer questions, someone to make them feel comfortable on campus, a friend in the community, that’s what I’m here for. I’m hoping to create a sense of community for international engineering students within the faculty.”  

Badmos previously worked at the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) as an International Programs Assistant. She holds a Bachelor’s in Forensic Psychology and a Master’s in Immigration and Settlement Studies.
