why i joined youth advancement society

I joined Youth Advancement Society to help the high school students not make the mistakes I made when I started university and make the transition into university less scary.

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME

  • I love to bake, over quarantine baking cakes has become my biggest hobby.

  • I love spending time in the mountains and doing photography.

  • One time on a hike I had a run in with bear cubs, the scariest moment so far. 

MY BEST TIPS & ADVICE FOR STUDENTS

  • Taking a gap year. This can help you decide further what you want to do after high school.

  • Ask questions. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand.

  • Work on time management. Don’t leave assignments until the last minute.

WHY I CHOSE MY PROGRAM

Right after high school I wanted to go into biology because I thought that’s what I liked, but in my gap year, I took a chemistry course. I found that to be a lot more interesting and I found that it came a lot easier to me.
