Meet Our Students

“When you enter university there’s an immense pressure to acquire certainty. At the end of high school I wanted to be an actor, but at the very last minute I decided to enter pursue neuroscience instead. I quickly learned that my dreams of becoming Derek Shepherd from Grey’s Anatomy wasn’t as enjoyable as I thought it’d be, so I switched into business. Over the next three years, I changed my mind again and am now interested in pursuing law. My undergraduate degree has been all over the map, but if I could start university all over again I would remind myself that it’s okay to not know. Life is not a step-by-step manual but a field of opportunity, and the best we can ask of ourselves is not to plan which opportunities will arise, but to grasp them as they come along.”
