Ryan: A story of balance
What brought you to Fanshawe?
I am a proud Londoner, and upon graduating from Montcalm S.S. specializing in carpentry, chose to stay in London to represent Fanshawe through cross country running. I have looked up to several of the runners there and hope to carry on their legacy! I chose construction/carpentry at Fanshawe because I would like to pair my knowledge with creativity and one day build in a more "green" way.
Tell us about your favourite Fanshawe experience.
I have had the experience of competing as part of Fanshawe Men's cross country team, and had the opportunity to travel Canada, while racing the fastest college runners out there. I have had valuable experience as the Student Ambassador for my program (CCQ), and been able to attend monthly dinner meetings, sitting in with construction experts. Those would be some of my favourite memories.
What impact has Fanshawe had on your life?
Almost done at Fanshawe, I have come to learn you really hold the power to uncover your dreams. Everyday working in a positive environment really does wonders. I will be leaving Fanshawe with the knowledge that nothing will ever become an experience, until you bite the bullet and do it. I have learned to to push past mental barriers I have set in sports and academics.
