Graduating with an honours Bachelor of Arts in drama and Communication, Media, and Film Studies
How did you pick your major of study, and why did you choose the University of Windsor?
I chose to do a double major in Drama and Communication, Media, and Film Studies because it allowed me to combine my love for acting and media/jounalism studies in one degree. I chose to come to the University of Windsor because it was one of the only schools in Ontario that offered this unique degree. Also, when I came to Head Start in my final year in high school I fell in love with the campus, the culture, and the surrounding area.
What were your expectations of university? Has the University of Windsor met those expectations?
My expectations of the university were to provide me with a quality education that would challenge my mind and help me to grow and develop as an individual. Yes, the University of Windsor was able to meet and exceed my expectations.
What would you say is the most important thing you have learned at university: about yourself, about other people, about your field of study, or about the world?
There have been many important life lessons that I have learned during my four years at the University of Windsor however the two most important being; take advantage of all opportunities that are placed in front of you because you will meet awesome people and experience amazing things and I have learned that I am capable of doing and accomplishing more that I thought.
What would you say has been the most memorable part of your UWindsor experience?
Although my whole UWindsor experience was very memorable I think that the main highlight for me was the learning that happened while outside of the classroom. Being a part of Campus life living in student residences, as a RLS staff member, a part of campus student groups, and being a coordinator for the African Diaspora Youth Conference.
