I would like to express my appreciation towards my former professor, Erin Oner. Her guidance throughout my entire education journey has been a gift, something I will never forget. Erin suggested that I consider taking the third year of the Business Administration - Marketing program at Confederation College, as it could open up more options for me in my future. She was right. I obtained my work placement at the United Way of Thunder Bay as a Special Events Assistant, as well as working for their Marketing and Communications department. Erin was always there to answer any questions I had, even while being on placement which was very helpful and I am very grateful to have had her as my professor.
During the summer I was hired as the Administration Assistant at the United Way of Thunder Bay and will continue to volunteer with them while I reside in Thunder Bay.
I feel as though I have great networking opportunities from being an Alumnus of Business - Marketing, as I have already had the opportunity to meet quite a few Alumni working at the United Way of Thunder Bay with all their different board members.
I decided to do the articulation with Lakehead University to finish off my education and am currently on my first semester. Erin continues to be helpful during my education journey and I know that I have made a lifelong connection with her.
