"The scariest moment for me at Telfer was in my second year when I realized all my plans had to change. I went to a Career Centre workshop and started talking to the relationship managers, Kimberley and Caroline. They told me I needed to network more than I initially thought (since I was no longer in co-op) and get to know myself better. This pushed me to get my Career Development Certificate and really get involved.

Now I feel much better, and I know where I am heading. This year I wanted to focus on academics and case competitions since I really enjoy the experience you gain from them. Getting involved with the Career Centre has also been a fantastic experience.

On a personal note, I think that the best drink at Starbucks is a creation my friend suggested. You take an iced peach green tea lemonade and substitute the lemonade for apple juice then add an extra shot of peach. I drink it so fast, I usually need a Venti to last me."
