My favourite Mount A memory so far is hosting the ACAA Volleyball championships. It was amazing to see the Mountie pride at our games.
Find your own idea of what it means to be successful. There is no finite path to success and you should only compare yourself to yourself. Do not let others keep score of your victories. There is a significant difference between being able to achieve a success metric but knowing which metric to achieve is so much more important. Discover your own values and work to achieve them.
I chose Mount A purely by going out on a limb. Mount A was actually my very last choice for universities. Many of my high school teachers attended Mount A and encouraged me to go. I had planned on going to Halifax, where I would be able to be in a big city. However, Mount Allison has become my home and I would not trade it for the world. I could not be happier with my descision.
I have changed tremendously since coming to MTA. I believe that attending a liberal arts university has allowed me to stray away from the conservative, rural town that I grew up in. I have learned an entirely new perspective and passion for creating equity within our society.
