In the Media

“I’m really glad I studied Hegel, Rousseau, Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, Camus, Marx, et al. However, I’m equally glad that I’ve done all the extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, and self-initiated projects that I have. I started making fanzines when I was 14, and I’m still in publishing today. I got very involved in my own film and music projects back in high school as well and they have led me to where I am today. Do the best you can on your course work, but keep in mind that for most of us life outside the classrooms is just as important .

“Enjoy being a student and living in Toronto. It’s a fantastic city and school and since I’ve moved away I miss it a lot. Don’t be afraid to try courses that aren’t on your critical path to a major, you’ll meet great people and learn something about a new topic or about yourself. Have fun, and try not to stress yourself out!

New College Impact

The student blogger position at The New was one of the reasons that I chose to pursue journalism.

“Jump.

No matter how scared you are. No matter how unprepared you think you are. No matter if you think you’re not good enough.

Jump into whatever opportunity and experience catches your eye. It’ll only change you for the better.

“All of my past experiences put me in a really good position to enter a marketing/design role in the philanthropic sector – which is where I wanted to be, and where I am right now. I didn’t know that this was what I wanted to do all along; I just looked for a sense of satisfaction with both my work and the people I surrounded myself with.

I think the most important thing when you’re young is to not be afraid to try things out, but keep in mind that you want to learn something from each experience – even if all you learn is that something isn’t for you.”
