Career Description

“If there’s something that you really want to do but are scared of how long it will take, or how much money it’s going to cost, or how far it will set you back, just forget all of that and go for it. None of those concerns that seem really important when you’re working on your undergraduate will matter in five years. Find your passion, and go for it with everything you have.”

“I would advise myself to take care of myself! It’s really easy to get caught up with school and extracurricular activities and forget about self-care. I would also tell myself to not overwork and prioritize my commitments better during my undergraduate studies. U of T is a fantastic school with innumerable opportunities, so make use of those opportunities while also enjoying your time!”

“Take advantage of all of the opportunities available to you on campus as a student! Be focused and efficient with your studying – treat it like a job, get it done, then take advantage of all of the free time you have to do something constructive. U of T has a club or organization for everything – sports, fitness, photography, music, debate, drama, etc. And it is all relatively inexpensive for you as a student. Take advantage of the time you have and the opportunities available to you.”

“Don’t be afraid to switch academic tracks. Completion of an undergraduate degree is not a race, it’s an exploration. Learning how to learn and have a flexible and critical mindset are the most valuable outcomes. Don’t worry about competing with others, challenge yourself to new heights of learning and expansion you are your main project. Enjoy it.”
