Who am I?
I am curious. Ever since childhood, I have taken a keen interest in the world around me, through reading and asking questions, but primarily by getting involved in a variety of activities and pursuits. This has shone through in both school and work environments where I constantly strive to get involved, and to learn and apply that learning as much as I can. It is incredibly motivating for me when I look back on the progress and contributions I've made to my work.
I am persistent, and always strive to act with integrity. My principles guide me; at the end of the day, I need to know three things:
1. That I put the effort in.
2. That I was respectful and friendly to everyone.
3. That I'm one step closer to my goals.
What I'm Doing
I am currently completing a Graduate Certificate in Marketing Management at Seneca College, where I am also involved in the Seneca Leadership Program and volunteer with Seneca Works. I hope to begin a career in market research post-graduation.
How I Got Here
I completed my BA at McMaster University in Multimedia in 2013, after which I worked as a freelance multimedia artist completing various graphic design, website and 3D modelling contracts. Through my freelance work, I completed a graphic design project for an engineering firm and landed a job there in their marketing department (I say department, but I was the only one in the department).
I didn't expect it, but I realized over the course of the three years I worked there that I loved marketing. It's a perfect blend of creativity, problem-solving, and critical thinking, and I can't wait to see where it takes me over the course of my career.
