Fourth Year, Business Technology Management
Kingdom of Bahrain
Hello Golden Hawks!
My name is Jujhar Singh, but you can call me Jay. I am from the Kingdom of Bahrain (in the Middle East), although I am Indian by nationality. I am an international student pursuing my Bachelors of Business Technology Management at Laurier, here at the Brantford campus.
Like many international students on campus, I had never visited Canada before coming to the university, so I never got the opportunity to take a tour of any campus at any of the other universities I applied to. After getting an acceptance from Laurier, I didn’t know what I was getting into, but all said and done, I believe this university, especially this campus, made my transition into university (and Canada) easier, mainly because of the fact that everyone on campus was so welcoming by making me feel like a part of their community.
Being a Student Ambassador helps me to give back to the university and allows me to help future students transition into the university, just as easily as I did. What this university has taught me is that a little goes a long way. This little gesture of welcoming people to our university and helping them, in any way possible, to understand what we are all about is all that matters at the end of the day.
Laurier is well known for its academic excellence, student life and its community. I especially enjoy the small campus atmosphere here, as we are small but mighty. Laurier has given me the opportunity to learn from a lot of great professors for whom I have the highest regard, but it has also helped me make the shift into the working world in Canada much easier. I was involved with Foot Patrol in my first year, I was a research assistant for my professors and I worked with the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) department over the summer, which has helped me build on my experience, as well as get an understanding about my courses in the work atmosphere. Laurier has given me a lot for which I am very grateful. This is why I make it my duty to help any student when they need it.
The meaning of my name, Jujhar, has always been my leading motivation, “Someone who never gives up.” I always find a way to improve myself in every aspects of life because I believe there is always room for improvement. But I’m not all work and no play. I love sports, especially cricket. I love learning and experiencing new things. I don’t only love to cook but I also enjoy trying every cuisine.
I am sure your time at Laurier will be worthwhile because of the opportunities that it gives to its students. If you have any questions for me, I am more than happy to answer them. I wish you all the best in choosing the school that suits you, but I hope I get to see you around.
