WE LIVE & WE LEARN

My goals

What are my career goals?

To be entirely honest, I don’t know exactly where I see myself in ten years. What I do know is that, whatever it is, it will align with my values, whether these remain the same or change over time. Being in your early 20s is a lot of fun. The opportunities are whatever you make of them! There is a lot of power in that.

This generation is all about creating fast results and acquiring the next best thing. I think if we took a step back, we would realize, the process of getting to where we want to be is actually where we want to be. The process might even be where we find the most value!

The question is always, “what do you want to do?” when it should be, “what are you doing right now?”  We are in an industrialized civilization and with that, comes the looming expectation to always have an answer for what we want to do. When realistically, shouldn’t we keep our options open? I am not saying we shouldn’t strive for our dreams and goals. I am saying to be open to the possibility of change over time. It’s trial and error and we should really take life a lot less seriously.

 

 

What are my values?

  •  Positive mindset and mindfulness practice
  •  Family and relationships
  •  Intentional living
  • Spending time in nature
  • Healthy, active lifestyle

 

Where I’m at right now

As of right now, I am in my final semester of the Bachelor of Commerce program at Gustavson School of Business (UVic), taking my Entrepreneurship Specialization. I love the idea of creating something that leaves a positive lasting impression on people’s lives and our environment. Recently my career goals have shifted quite a bit. I recently completed my 200HR Registered Yoga Teacher Certification and have found so much value through this. I also love problem-solving and creative thinking, which lends itself well to entrepreneurship. My goal is to blend my business background and my love for healthy, proactive living. This has led to my interest in a career in Occupational Therapy. I want to make a positive change in the Occupational Therapy field and help individuals who have been dealt a difficult hand in life to reach their physical, cognitive, and emotional goals to lead to greater, overall life fulfillment 🙂
