Victor Mario Kaisar is in hisfirst year of the BroadcastJournalism program. Kaisarsaid of himself: “I used to be shy,I’m glad that’s over. My brothercalls me freakishly tall and attimes I understand what hemeans. I love sports, I was aschool captain, played on thesoccer team and made a lot of people laugh.”1. Why are you here?
I left home, in far-off India, to dothe program I’m in and it’s been anamazing experience so far.
2. What was your life-changingmoment?
I’d say leaving home and living inLondon all by myself. I do misshome, but living alone, I’velearned to be more responsible.
3. What music are you currentlylistening to?
Coldplay and Green Day are myfavourites. I’d listen to classic rock all day with Eminem and somemore rap thrown in there as well.And yes, I can’t stand JustinBieber.
4. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
From my dad: Do whatever you setyour heart out to, don’t worryabout the cost, but do everythingwith 100 per cent commitment.
5. Who is your role model?
It’s hard to say, actually. I playedsoccer while growing up and usedto look up to Oliver Kahn andEdwin van der Sar.
6. Where in the world have youtravelled?
Canada, Italy, Austria, England,Singapore and Thailand (lost countof the number of times), Indonesia,Malaysia and tons of places withinIndia.
7. What was your first job?
Would you be shocked if I said Ihaven’t worked once in my life? Itisn’t part of culture in India towork while in high school and I’dchange that if I could.
8. What would your last mealbe?
Hey, if it’s my last meal, it’d haveto be everything. It sounds cliché, Iknow but, I love eating just aboutanything. If I can’t decide what toorder, I usually end up closing myeyes and picking something ran-domly.
9. What makes you uneasy?
Exams, naturally. It’s a good thingmy program doesn’t have many of them.
10. What is your passion?
In my short time as part of XFM News, I’ve covered a breaking firestory and spoken to AustinWatson. It was enthralling. I alsohave a collection of paper towelsfrom various restaurants all acrossthe world. But my biggest passionwill always be sports.

 Need inspiration? Then you can breathe easy. This year,Fanshawe’s up-and-comingRespiratory Therapists are takingtheir novel approach to health-careeducation and charity fundraisingto new levels with the annualRespiratory Therapy StudentConference. No student at Fanshawe Collegeis any slouch at fundraising, if theubiquitous bake sales and coindrives are any indication, and our nationally renowned programsshould be a good hint to our stanceon education. So five years ago, agroup of Fanshawe RespiratoryStudents put two and two together and came up with $800 by hostinga health-care conference, donatingthe sum to their long-time charity,the Lung Association.The conference covers a broadspectrum of issues in respiratorycare and includes an interprofes-sional panel of speakers rangingfrom the nationally renowned Dr.Jim Lewis of the University of Western Ontario’s Department of Physiology and Pharmacology toHeather Morris, a 2005 Fanshawegraduate of the RespiratoryTherapy program. With topicsgoing as far abroad as global med-icine and as close to home ashome-care therapies, they expect agood turnout.“We expect at least 60 students,”commented Nadine Meek, Vice-President of the RespiratoryTherapy Student Federation andone of the foremost organizers behind the event. “We haveopened up the conference to stu-dents in other RT programs fromschools such as Michener, St. Clair and Conestoga Colleges, and wehave received a significantresponse from those students. Itwill be great to get to know stu-dents … from other schools and togain valuable networking opportu-nities.”But this opportunity is hardlylimited to Respiratory students.“Even if you aren’t in the RT pro-gram, I think the conference willstill be very beneficial to anyonewho is interested in learning aboutdifferent topics in the health carefield,” Meek enthused. “For exam- ple, we have a speaker coming into talk about electronic stetho-scopes, which doesn’t pertain sole-ly to RTs and would be very appli-cable to almost any allied health professional. As well, even if someof the topics are more RT-focused,I think it would be a good experi-ence … to learn about what RTsdo, how they interact with other health care professionals and tomake connections with fellowFanshawe students.” Networking is yet another aspectof the conference that attendeeshave to look forward to. With rep-resentatives from the Middlesex-London Health Unit and localmedicare companies in attendance,student health practitioners canhobnob with their future employersover the conference’s complemen-tary breakfast and lunch. And, if last year’s conference was anyindication, the synergy of so manyhealth-care practitioners in oneroom can be almost exhilarating.“It was a blast!” said LeannTrowbridge, a second-year RT stu-dent . “I had such an amazing timelast year! Great people!”Her classmates were also enthu-siastic in their responses. “Ohyeah, we’re excited!” StaceyGibson added.The Fanshawe faculty are hardlyless pleased than the students.“It’s pretty exciting that theRespiratory Therapy students haveoffered to provide this event,” PaulWilliams said. As Coordinator of the RT program at Fanshawe and aformer Paramedic, Williams iswell situated to see the response inthe greater community to thisendeavour. “It’s well recognizedinterprovincially, as well as beinga unique Fanshawe experience.We’re the only college offeringthis conference so far.”Students looking to get in on this‘unique Fanshawe experience’ canalso build their portfolio, as certifi-cates of participation will beextended to all in attendance, yetanother perk sure to attract stu-dents from health-care programsthat expect high extracurricular involvement.To RVSP your place at the con-ference, contact the RT ticket salesreps Dipesh Patel atd_patel7@fanshaweonline.ca or Charlene Male at c_male3@fan-shaweonline.ca. Hope to see youthere!

March is National EngineeringMonth, and the OntarioAssociation of CertifiedEngineering Technicians andTechnologists (OACETT) kickedit off at Fanshawe College onMarch 7 by announcing a huge bursary that will benefit studentsstudying in an OACETT recog-nized engineering or applied sci-ence program.OACETT officially launched its25 for 25 Building Forward cam- paign, which will expand the orga-nization’s Carole and GeorgeFletcher Foundation bursary pro-gram, at Fanshawe by announcingthe creation of a $40,000 endow-ment fund, which will create a$1,000 bursary in perpetuityawarded annually to an engineer-ing or applied science student.OACETT is the professionalassociation that promotes the inter-ests of engineering and applied sci-ence technicians and technologistsin industry, educational institu-tions, with government and withthe public. OACETT is alsoOntario’s independent certifying body for engineering and appliedscience technicians and technolo-gists. The Carole and GeorgeFletcher Foundation bursary pro-gram helps young people acrossthe province pursue careers inengineering and applied sciencetechnology.Since awarding its first bursaryin 1987, the Foundation has recog-nized 326 worthy students acrossOntario. Two recent recipientsfrom 2011 include Adam Mihm, arecipient from Fanshawe’s CivilEngineering Technology programand Andrea Aube from FanshaweCollege, EnvironmentalTechnology Program.“This is a great opportunity to build on the long relationshipsOACETT has with Fanshawe,”said Rod MacLeod, President of OACETT. “It allows us tostrengthen our connection both tothe college and directly to the stu-dents studying engineering andapplied science technology.”This endowment marks the beginning of the 25 for 25 cam- paign, which ultimately has a goalto reach $1 million invested in edu-cation. “We believe this is animportant investment in studenteducation and will cultivate home-grown expertise to meet local andglobal demands for engineeringtechnology professionals now andin the future,” added MacLeod.“Fanshawe’s bursary programhas been growing significantly inthe last number of years and that’squite exciting,” said Dr. HowardRundle, President of FanshaweCollege. “We’re making contactwith more and more donors everyyear who recognize the value of supporting post-secondary educa-tion.”“Today’s announcement istwofold,” continued Rundle.“First, it represents an opportunityfor our donors to get a real sense of what their generosity can accom- plish. Second, it demonstrates the power of community service for our students, which is one of themost vital lessons we can teachstudents while they’re here. Thank you, OACETT for teaching thatlesson.”For more information aboutOACETT and the campaign, visitoacett.org.
