This is where it all really began. Up until now has just been preparation and now it’s here, it’s the start. I think we just have to remember to get out of our comfort zone but once you step outside you can meet new people and have experiences that you never thought you’d have. I feel like I’ve laid a really good foundation here at Dal and met some really amazing people. Every milestone, I put in my life has been the start of something new and something great. We’re so lucky to be at a place where the sky is the limit. When a student graduates, it is a culmination of their hopes and dreams and usually those of their family. The last 200 years have been about a great university serving a great province and a great country. You’re kind of thrown into a family where you have that social support, which is unbelievable. Dal has such a long history and I think marking the 200th can reflect the new way we think of society. Things are going to change really fast and being here right now at Dalhousie, you can see it happening. I think life just keeps restarting. Once you get a handle on the fact that every day is a new beginning then you just sort of enjoy each one. I’m excited to graduate and take the next step forward. It’s easily the best decision of my life.
