Letters of Thanks
Received in late 2019.
Thank you for your email. Ever since I finished school I’ve been trying to do as much as I can with my freedom before I head back to school.
I have been dreaming of attending Dalhousie for the past four years and I am extremely proud of getting accepted into this university; it has been my dream school for so long. While there, I plan on taking International Development and Italian. As well, I will be taking Political Science, Classics, where I learn about Greek mythology and monsters and history.
I have volunteered at the local soup kitchen and thrift store in Iqaluit. I have also volunteered at two Arctic Winter Games and organized a student walkout for the environment with a couple of my friends. As well, I have gone on multiple leadership trips to the south where I learned how to properly use my voice, help others use theirs, and teamwork.
As for my academic strengths, I learned to work hard and keep my grades up. I learned how to manage my time wisely, how to discipline myself when it comes to setting a schedule and sticking to it, and most importantly, how to focus on school and prioritize it.
I come from a huge family, but my support comes from my mother. She, as well as my uncle, have been my role models my entire life. They showed me that in order to succeed, one must work for it, and that it does not come easy.
In the long term, I see myself either working in law, politics or business. I have only ever imagined myself working in one of those three careers. I have family members from both sides of the family in politics, and so naturally, I have a passion in that field. Law and business are interesting careers, and I can’t wait to explore my options.
