Take your time to learn more about yourself.

Reach out, talk to professors, challenge other students and yourself to think and engage.

Use your classes to create your voice and your approach. Understand how to ask questions and get your ideas across in difficult situations.

Reach out to TAs, Professors, other students who you might find interesting and who can share some perspective.

Once you leave university, the ability for this to happen organically sometimes dramatically decreases. Approach the world with wonder.

“Every day, try to talk to someone who is very different from you. Ask open questions and listen to understand, not just to hear. You will learn much more from people’s stories than any textbook. (But also read your textbook… before class).”

“Become engaged in your 2nd year with Executive Committees, groups, networking, and personal health. Looking back, becoming so engaged in my 4th year was amazing; however I should have been using the numerous opportunities U of T offered throughout my four years.

These include resume and cover letter workshops, editorial help, public speaking, networking opportunities within my Faculty / Department and externally through other Departments, industry events etc. The opportunities offered through the University are first-class. Do not take those for granted or wait till the last year like I did. “
