Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

My Favourite Quote:

“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.” – Oscar Wilde 

Three Facts about Me:

  • I can speak French nearly fluently, and a considerable amount of sign language and German.
  • It has always been my goal to travel the world, and I intend to start by doing a year of exchange through Laurier International.
  • I grew up with many different forms of cultural exposure, and that drove me to eventually find my passion for civil rights and advocating for that.

Why Did You Choose Laurier?

I chose Laurier’s Brantford campus due to a lecture that a professor gave on my program during the March Break Open House. I had fully been intending to accept my offer to another university, but the passion and drive in his words truly spoke to me and I ended up accepting my offer to Laurier that night. As well, the small and tight-knit campus really reminded me of home, having grown up in several small towns. It gave me the feeling of being at home that I always wanted in a post-secondary atmosphere.

Involvement on Campus:

  • Current President of Laurier Brantford’s Amnesty International chapter: devoted to advocating for civil rights both on and off campus.
  • Laurier Ambassador.
  • Frequent volunteer in campus events and initiatives such as open house events.

Three Favourite Courses that I Have Taken at Laurier:

  • Introduction to International Development
  • Ancient History in a Global Context
  • Criminal Law in Canada
