“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.”

“My advice, for current students, would be to stop trying to find your calling/passion. I realize this may sound counter-intuitive— I used my lived experience to identify small projects I wanted to work on and things I wanted to change. I used these small initiatives as a platform to springboard my career.

Follow what interest you (this could be a class you are good at, subject matter that is easy to read, or even the the issues that you find most difficult). With that, will come passion. Showing genuine motivation in your field is what will distinguish you from the pack.

Career Accomplishments

“Get involved beyond the classroom, what you do outside the classroom is equally as important as what you do inside the classroom. Becoming engaged in the wider U of T community will allow you to build important skills, meet incredible people and most importantly get to know yourself, which is how you will discover what you are good at and where your passion lies.

There are SO many opportunities to get involved, whether it is through summer abroad, international exchange, volunteering, clubs (there are over 900 + clubs!!!), there is something for everyone to take part it.

Get to know your resources, there are no shortage of opportunities to get help and build your skills. Get to know the places you can turn to for help, for support and encouragement.

See the people in your classroom as allies, not your competition. You are all in this together, you can help each other and lift each other up. You are probably going through many of the same struggles as your peers, so don’t be shy about reaching out to them.

This is the best time for you to take part in all the wonderful things on offer, get to know all that awaits you….then you can be selective about what you partake in; and there is something for everyone in this amazing place!”

“Build thing(s) you care about, do things even if you can’t do them on your own, learn to work with others. take the courses that you’re most afraid of, do the homework, ask for help when you need it. Go to office hours and talk to your professors about things that you care about. Learn from people who you respect.”
