JIM: A story of ambition
Life is full of life-changing opportunities. These can only be seen by those that are prepared and hungry enough to go after them.
Fanshawe taught me to put my best effort in everything that I do and to be ambitious about my dreams. During my academic journey at Fanshawe, I experienced so much of what's offered to their students.
From the first semester, I looked for available Awards & Scholarships, and integrated my own ideas of running a dance studio business into assigned projects. I also enrolled into co-op and gained 8 months of work experience at 3M Canada. Over the semesters I learned to develop a strong work ethic managing multiple projects. In the midst of all this learning, I realized that opportunities were EVERYWHERE. I just had to go after them. During my last year at Fanshawe, I shared some of the most unforgettable experiences with fellow students and professors.
Thanks to our coaches, we placed 2nd at Ontario College’s Marketing Competition in Windsor. In addition, we won a free trip to Googleplex in MV, CA as regional winners in Americas for Google Online Marketing Challenge. It was truly inspiring to have worked with passionate professors who truly cared for students’ success.
I am now at the beginning of another journey at RBC, creating and looking for many more opportunities for my future.
