What experience, job or internship have you learned the most from or found most rewarding?

I learned the most from my two summers and part-time work in the government relations department at a large mining company. My job carried a lot of responsibility so there was a steep learning curve, but I quickly learned how to distill and summarize large amounts of information.

Is there an organization that means a lot to you?

Copernicus Lodge, a Polish language long-term care home in Toronto. My grandmother is a resident there and I have seen how being surrounded by one’s culture can drastically improve one’s quality of life.

Where was the last place you travelled to?

My brother and I hiked the Inca Trail in Peru.
