"This past year I've had the pleasure of being the Student Speak UOIT Spotlight blogger. This opportunity has been amazing and such an honour. I've met some amazing people, made new friends and gained an array of tools and skills that are transferable into my academic career and future. I've learned so many amazing things not only about the people I've interviewed but about UOIT as a campus and community. I've gained so much pride in this institution throughout this experience, and especially from those that I work with. UOIT is filled with so many motivated students and caring faculty, it's young and innovative and truly amazing. I couldn't imagine doing my BA elsewhere.
This opportunity has made my third year one to remember, and one that I'm especially proud of. I've always loved to write, so this opportunity has provided me an outlet to express my creativity and enhance my abilities all while having fun in the process. Blogging for UOIT has opened so many doors to new experiences and new people and allowed me to build a portfolio all while learning about myself. I've realized how much I love writing, and how I hope to turn my passion into a profession one day. I've had such a great year and this experience has provided me with so much in return, and I've loved every second of it."
