Peer Mentor

Program & Year:

Second year Bachelor of Industrial Design

Why I’m a mentor:

I am a mentor because I know there is a lot of burning questions that first years have about tips and tricks to survive first year university. I want to help make a difference with the knowledge that I have gained over the past year!

Something I wished I knew in my first year… 

I wish I knew that it is okay to not know exactly what you are doing. Meaning, that it’s okay to be struggling in a class, friends, family, and other campus resources are there for you. It’s okay to not know what kind of minor you want, or if you want one, or even what major or major focus you want just yet! You can take your time and rely on those around you and go to resources on campus to help you make those life-altering decisions and learn content to help you in your classes!
