Degrees:Bachelor of Arts Honours in Political Science, Minor in History (June 2021)

What is your favourite thing about the program?

The Political Science department and the History department are tight-knit communities filled with support and the reinforcing push to expand your understanding of the world that we live in and the influence that we have on it.

What will you miss the most?

My undergrad not only brought further knowledge and experience – it also brought so many influential people into my life, and connections that will last a lifetime. Therefore, I will miss most the classroom environment and the amazing people that I met over the past two years.

What is your favourite reading/book/text from the program?

My favourite reading from my undergraduate degree was ‘This Place 150 Years Retold’ by Alicia Elliot. This novel was assigned in HIST3510A taught by Michel Hogue. In my opinion this book should be read by every Canadian citizen – the graphic novel provides a detailed timeline from the 1800’s-present day of the oppression and genocide that Indigenous peoples have faced across our country. This novel is written and graphically designed by Indigenous writers and artists. If you have the opportunity please take the course (HIST3510A).

What’s next for you?

Finding my calling within the work force – whether that may be policy reform; intelligence; government liaison work. This next chapter for me is discovering where I best fit, and where I wish to place my efforts within my passions.
