“Why did you choose that program?”

“Back in high school, my parents talked about how I should study something that I can realistically get a career out of. I would have been in Professional Writing but since Grade 11, I took commerce and management courses.

It goes beyond numbers. Once you go through the statements, you give an opinion to companies on them and you get paid for it. I like learning all these things but I don’t like being tested on it. I am not really happy with it but I’ve grown used to it. I will be happy once I am able to apply all the knowledge.

I know I would be happier doing professional writing because I know I am good at it, but I am okay with what I am studying. I have met a lot of great people.“
