“1. Keep taking on new challenges. I learned almost as much from my extracurricular activities and student jobs as I did from my undergraduate degree.
2. Mental health is important. Take care of yours and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
3. If you want to go to graduate school or a post-secondary program, it’s usually important to make sure you keep your marks up. You may not be thinking about this in first or second year, but it never hurts to try and keep those doors open in future.
4. If something is not working, don’t be afraid to switch programs. I did that after second year and it was a great decision for me.

“Life might seem stressful and uncertain sometimes, but it’ll be okay. It’s hard not to compare yourself to others sometimes, especially those who might seem to be doing better academically, socially, etc. But know that you and your journey is different. You have your own amazing strengths to offer this world, so focus on trying to figure out what those strengths and passions are and let that be your guide.”

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.”

Career Description

  • Design Consultant, Grantbook Inc.
  • Internship at an integrated marketing agency
  • Freelance work in web design and developing

“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.”

Career Description

“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!”
