My dream job was actually to work for CSIS or to work as a translator for a video game company like Ubisoft. I ended up finding my way into marketing while I was finishing my master’s in Toronto, and I used a lot of the skills I had learned while working for the SFUO Foot Patrol and grew from there. Now I’m a full-time digital account manager for a marketing agency in the GTA!
My dream was always to work in theatre and tour around the world. Once I got to Berlin and travelled with my scripts, I felt like I achieved this and was ready for new challenges and to try everything that interested me.

Last November 18, I had the great pleasure to hear a talk by Richard Carleton. The Faculty of Arts was honoured to welcome Carleton, a uOttawa history alumnus, as part of a day of networking titled Arts | innovation. A successful businessperson and CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange, Carleton was able to convince us of the value of an arts degree and make us laugh with his wittiness.
