What did you love the most about first year?

While the online context was not the most conducive to developing meaningful relationships, it is in fact those few strong friendships that I developed during the time that I most love about the first year. I also got my first ever dog during the time so it’s a tie, I guess!

How did you spend your summer?

I was busy enjoying long walks and exploring nature Toronto has to offer. Another significant part of my summer has been the internship experience at OLG and planning club events with the team!

What did you love the most about first year?

The most gratifying aspect of my 1st year at Rotman was the massive group of friends I was able to surround myself with. Having people from around the world of different nationalities and backgrounds, allowed me to not only learn about their experiences and cultures, but also share some of my own with them. However, what stood out to me the most was how well my classmates and I adapted to the “new ways of working” created by the pandemic. We ensured that we had each others backs, and also that we got the most out of the situation dealt to us.

How did you spend your summer?

Over the summer of 2021, I worked with the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development as a Policy Advisor managing two Automotive sector programs. I helped provide financial support to local Ontarian small and medium enterprises and made platforms available to them to facilitate the development of new-age mobility solutions within the province. I also led a program geared towards developing provincial policies and creating strategic roadmaps to promote the adoption and commercialization of autonomous and electrical vehicles. This experience gave me an incredible opportunity to explore the public sector and an industry that I am passionate about (Automotive) from “the other side of the curtain”. Besides work, I spent a lot of time exploring Toronto on foot, and experimenting in my kitchen to beat the pandemic blues.

It’s tough to narrow it down to one thing, but I really enjoyed the classes. Though I have a few favourites, all the courses in first year allowed me to reflect on my experiences & helped me identify what I’d really love to do next. The way in which classes were structured was also great, because it facilitated learning from my friends & classmates, and that made the journey a whole lot more enjoyable!
