“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. “

Career Accomplishments

“Get involved as early as possible, especially if you’re coming from a different country like me (I grew up and graduated from high school in Hong Kong). Your undergrad degree will become more fulfilling, rewarding, and enjoyable the moment you get involved. Because of all these activities, you will meet so many people that you never thought you’d meet in a million years and you will gain lifelong friends, and connections along the way. However, don’t overwhelm yourself with too many activities. Your academics are ALWAYS your first priority. Learn to prioritise your work better, and always make sure you form personal relationships with your professors and peers. You never know when they’ll come in handy – especially if you plan on pursuing further education. Most importantly, have fun! You only have one undergraduate degree, and you’re pursuing it at one of the top institutions IN THE WORLD, so make sure you make the most out of your four (or more) years here!”

“Don’t be too focused on what you want to do after U of T – enjoy your time there and learn as much as you can. What comes next will come together naturally, and will be informed by your academic interests, peers, and community involvement. Do work that matters.”
