I chose Mount A because...

....It was the first university that caught my eye. It was far away from home and the complete opposite of what I was use to. I fell in love with Mount A because of the diversity that allowed me to form new friendships with many international students from around the world.

Advice I would give to incoming students...

....In no way give up even when times get tough. There were so many nights when I wanted to give up but I just have to remind myself that I have made it this far. I want you guys to recognize that you are worthy enough to be what ever your desire is to become in existence. Life has obstacles but in the end we conquer those obstacles.

How have I changed since coming to Mount A...

....I would say that I have changed for the better by becoming more independent, breaking out of my shell, and maintaining greater confidence in myself.

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

....Having random snowball fights with my friends because in that moment I forgot about the world for just a second while my mind capture the moment.
