3 Lessons After 5 Years (and Countries)

Namibia

It’s hard to fathom that ten years have elapsed since my first semester as a wide-eyed teenager. In many ways, the past decade has been a blur – an intensive double-degree, co-op program, followed by four jobs in as many countries over the following five years.

Strengthening my Bond

I never really thought about being an alumna during my first few years as a UWaterloo student. Working as a co-op student for Alumni Relations was definitely an eye opener for me. Who knew there was a whole extra chapter in our lives that would begin after convocation?

Career Action Chronicles: Job search journey

Let’s be real, job searching is hard! We’ve got a degree, maybe a few, now it’s time to face the real world. Most of our productive lives will be spent working, so why work at a place that doesn’t spark your passion or interests? Finding a job that you truly enjoy is something we should all strive for.

My colleagues and I often say that the value of a Waterloo degree is not only based on the university itself. It’s more dynamic than that. It’s based on the accomplishments of our alumni. When our grads are happy, contributing members of society, people take notice.

My Pink Water Bottle

Having attended the University of Waterloo after growing up in Kitchener, I always had the urge to get out and see the world. The opportunity finally came when I was accepted into the computer science master’s program at University College London in London, England. While London is not ‘the world’, the world does come to London … literally.
