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

...I've become a lot more passionate, curious, and confident! I also have joint pain.

Advice I would give to incoming students...

.....take care of yourself and go with the flow. Nobody really knows what the future holds so just keep an open mind, get some sleep & eat well! Take care of yourselves and each other. I also live by the proverb: sleep more than study, study more than you party, and party as much as you possibly can.

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

....my mta experience started on a high when during orientation week 2017, I almost set the meal hall toaster on fire (embarrassing). Some of my favourite memories since then include Boney M karaoke, Paris Hilton Lasagna dinner party, the Sackville Climate Strike, writing/filming a sketch comedy show in quarantine, among other things.

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

...Eat out lol...Seriously though, Sackville has a really great assortment of cafes, restaurants, diners, and pizza places. Whether it's a stroll through the farmers market, a lunch with a friend, or garlic fingers on a late night, going out for a bite is a nice way to take a break from school and meal hall. (I recommend the lunch specials from Song's, Honey Garlic Fingers from Goya's, Pancakes from Patterson's, and cinnamon buns from Cranewood)
