Allison Penton

St. John's, NL

Allison is a fourth year business student at Memorial University working towards a Bachelor of Commerce (Co-op) Degree. She is looking for an opportunity to apply her creative thinking, innovative mind and hard working attitude. She is very well-rounded and has a vast amount of experience working in non-profit, government and private sector.

Allison has been fortunate enough to be apart of Enactus Memorial, a student-run organization which provides community outreach programs. Since joining, she has been apart of 5 different community outreach programs, a member of the Go Green Scotiabank Team and the Enactus Memorial National Team.

Outside of the classroom, Allison is an avid volunteer with Enactus Memorial, Junior Achievement, Special Olympics, Easter Seals and Eastern Health. Volunteering has helped her grow as a person along with learning a lot of different skills such as time management, personal skills and problem solving skills. Volunteering her time lets her give back to the community and helps her stay engaged with things that she loves such as business and helping others.

Allison loves continuously being busy and trying new things. This past year she completed her ESL (English as a Second Language) Certification to allow her to grow as a person and learn more about the English language.
