UW Mindful Creations is a club that aims to empower creative expression through practicing mindful meditation. The club intends to create a safe, peaceful, and stress-relieving environment where students can tap into their creative side through a group mediation focusing on mindfulness. A general meeting would begin with a 10–15-minute mindful meditation, allowing members to feel relaxed and aware of their emotions. Following the meditation, members will participate in creative activities such as painting, creating tie-dye T-Shirts, etc. The art does not have to be meaningful or make sense but simply be an expression that emerges rather spontaneously.

Menstruation is often stigmatized across diverse cultures and communities and is associated with negative connotations. The founder of the UW Period Purse strives to eradicate this stigma by addressing this topic that affects billions of women every day. UW Period Purse is an organization that is committed to uplifting and empowering marginalized women in period poverty, which is a crucial public health concern. Period poverty refers to the inability of women to access menstrual products due to financial constraints. It is estimated that Canadian women spend up to $6,000 in their lifetime on menstrual hygiene products. At UW Period Purse, we believe that menstrual products should not be a luxury but a necessity. Periods are often used interchangeably with menstruation. Hence, the founders of UW Period Purse brought in this word to represent our club, as it combats the stigma and negative connotations that are often associated with menstruation.
