Please welcome our new Summer Communications Advisor, Mila Markovic!

Mila Markovic is a recent graduate from Carleton University, where she completed a Bachelors degree with Honours in Communication and Media Studies while also obtaining a minor in Business. Throughout her time at Carleton University, she has been exposed to an in-depth understanding of how media technologies and marketing strategies are intertwined. While obtaining her degree, she has been looking in gaining further professional experience in the field of digital media, be it in marketing, social media management, content creation, and more!

Mila comes to the Lambda Scholarship Foundation Canada with experience working in the non-profit sector previously at United Way East Ontario (UWEO) as a communications summer student. She helped in assisting the marketing and overall planning of UWEO’s annual capacity-building event known as Leveraging Our Strengths (LOS) and their pre-conference event for Truth and Reconciliation. Here she was able to retain her communication skills while also gaining a comprehensive skillset surrounding event coordination and social media/marketing. Mila still currently works with United Way East Ontario as a volunteer in planning next year’s LOS conference, managing its social media accounts, and creating media content for other projects within the organization such as Women United and PCL Hard Hats Heroes Program.

While accepting her position at Lambda Scholarship Foundation Canada earlier this week, Mila is looking forward to expanding her knowledge regarding 2SLGBTQ+ and QTBIPOC communities and tackling new communication challenges in the workplace.

A message from Mila:

“I’m a very outgoing and personable individual. For as long as I can remember I have always loved connecting with new people, especially in a work setting! No matter the day I’m having or if I notice someone in need, I always try to stay positive and make the best of any given situation. The same goes for the work I’ve done! I have a very keen and creative eye for great storytelling. No matter the tasks I’m given, I always strive to do my best and ensure that it aligns with any business model. I couldn’t be any more grateful and excited for this opportunity in working with the Lambda Scholarship Foundation Canada!”

Here’s to a warm welcome to Mila and seeing her achieve great things with Lambda!
