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

...Since coming to Mount A I have gained a lot more confidence in myself. I have also acquired a new desire to learn and question things about the world around me! Mount A teaches you a lot in the classroom but what you will learn outside of the classroom will be just as valuable (if not more)!

I chose Mount A because...

...The close-knit community within the university and within the town of Sackville! It's not too far (but not too close) to home! I love having smaller classes and seeing people I know all over campus :)

Advice I would give to incoming students...

...Push yourself out of your comfort zone! Sometimes the things that make you nervous end up being the best experiences :) --if you're really nervous about something, grab a buddy to go along with you or reach out to an RA or Orientation volunteer- we are here to help!!!

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

...Go for lunch for yummy food and good chats with friends! Lunch breaks are the perfect way to re-fuel for the afternoon and catch up with pals :) Sackville has amazing places to eat and it's a great way to support local!

I'm passionate about...

Music Reading Dancing to Groovy Music

I'm involved with...
