Why did you choose to study the BBA, International Business at Langara School of Management?

I first started at Langara back in 2011. I knew I wanted to do my BBA and my initial plan was to transfer to UBC. I spent one semester at UBC and left. I decided to take a break from school so I could travel. When deciding which school to come back to and finish my degree, the answer was definitely Langara. I loved the community at Langara. The smaller classes and special care instructors had with their students.  I always felt welcomed and I am happy I made the decision to come back and finish my degree with LSM. 

Have you found Coop work in the area that you studied? And did you find your Coop work to be what you anticipated?

My coop work term was at Langara. Before coop I had never worked in an office. I was a little unsure of what my career goals or industry I wanted to go into. I never realized how much works goes in to producing all the marketing materials, events, sponsorships, and social media plans. I wasn’t expecting that, but I was glad I got to be a part of it. Coop helped me home in my career goals a little more and that is to pursue a career in digital marketing. 

What career would you like to choose after leaving school?

My hope would be to find a job in a digital marketing firm. I am currently applying for roles in social media. I love telling stories, I love creating and I think that social media is a great avenue for me to showcase my creativity and business background. 

What is your favourite study spot on campus?

I always tried to find an empty classroom to study in. I find being in a classroom environment even when there’s no class in session gives me more study energy. 

What are you doing to stay positive and motivated during COVID?

I am very lucky to have so many groups of amazing friends all around the world. During COVID, everyone had a lot more spare time and availability to catch up, so I have been making a lot more phone calls. Thanks to the magic of Zoom and What’s App calling, I can make those calls as frequently as I want. Even though some friends are farther away, during COVID, I got a lot closer to some of them.
