About me

I became a UVic student for a change of scenery and to start a new chapter in my life. The campus is just the right size for me--I didn't feel overwhelmed, but still had plenty of options to explore my interests. Victoria's ocean views, snowless winters and great climate also didn't hurt.

When I started at UVic, I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I enjoyed writing and working with people, but it wasn't until I discovered the co-op program that I really gained some clarity in what I wanted to do for my career. I built my community, explored my passions and grew into the unique person I am now.

My advice to future university students

You don't have to know what you want to study when you graduate from high school. If you're certain that you want to study microbiology and become a surgeon, that's great! But if you're not ready to make such a big decision, that's okay too. You've got lots of time to get it right.
