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

…Well, the change from one country to another creates several adaptations, mainly psychological. However, the accessibility that Mount A. provides to students, such as volunteering work, work experience, and study opportunities. Therefore, with all the experience provided to me, I realize that I’ve become a more reliable, determined, independent, responsible, and a more focused person.

Favourite Mount A memory (so far)...

... Homecoming and chemistry day are the best memories I have since I started school at Mount A.

Advice I would give to incoming students...

… The first two things that come up in my mind right now is the responsibility and focus on your objective. I know that there are so many other important things but I believe that those two are the key to success. Being used wisely and also in balance, just like everything in life, the student will have huge success in life.

My favourite thing to do in Sackville is...

...Go for a walk in the waterfowl park, go to Joey's pizza with friends, have study groups at Melt's, and study at the library.
