Giving to UNB

Global experience, local impact

It was in her first year of science that Lua Samimi joined the UNB chapter of Global Brigades, an international student-led organization that helps improve the health, water, sanitation and economic infrastructure of rural communities.

Lua’s experiences in Honduras encouraged her to step into a leadership role, and in 2015 she become Co-President of the UNB Medical Chapter. This involvement also reinforced her desire to become a physician.

“This is an important program and I was happy to put my efforts and energy into something that matters to me and will impact others in a positive way,” says the Dean’s List student.

Donor support of scholarships and bursaries creates the opportunities that students like Lua need to succeed. Explore what you can support at UNB. It begins here. It begins with you.
