New College Impact

I was in the double cohort. Many students were randomly placed in my first year of school, myself included, so I had virtually no ties to New College. The majority of my courses and education happened via the Cinema Studies program offered out of Innis College and the English Literature program offered out of Victoria College.

“It’s easy to make up your mind regarding what you’re going to study long before you even attend university. I made my choices that way at first but stayed open to the idea of changing my mind halfway through. I changed minors several times and don’t regret it. I took more credits than I needed to in the end, but gained a lot of experience in the different subject matter I studied along the way as a result.

“1) Be present and enjoy the moment.
2) Be self-compassionate – you are doing good wherever you are.
3) Never say never. Everything comes together in full circle at some point.
4) Be kind to every single person (even the person who stole your seat on the TTC). Say thank you. Hold the door.
5) Don’t stop — even if you have multiple doors closed on you and people berating you. Keep going.

“Let your courses and professors spark your inspiration. One of my favourite classes was “Sociology of Aids” – which introduced me to Malcolm Gladwell and the concept of tipping point, which inspired me to explore that concept against the backdrop of consumer products (and marketing) and climate change. School is the match, you make the fire.”
