Unlike most of my peers, I did not need OSAP. I am fortunate that I have an RESP fund saved up for me. If it was not for that fund, I am not sure I would have ever come to college.
Other than the obvious reason of going to college so I can get a decent job, I consider education to be very important. As the old cliché goes, “knowledge is power”. All my life I have been interested in business. Sales specifically. Coming to Canadore College and learning about sales techniques and other business skills has not only enhanced my knowledge of the trade of advertising, but also enhanced my overall life skills. I am more confident, better at speaking, quicker on my feet, and more motivated than ever before.
I have always had high aspirations for myself and by coming to college, I hope I can make my dreams a reality. I still have a long way to go to develop not only as a salesman, but as a human being. I feel by coming to college, I am taking the necessary steps in order to become who I want to be.
Anyone reading this who is considering passing up on the opportunity of getting a post-secondary education, I will tell you this: you can make money now by not going to college, and working full time, but it will be very difficult for you to gain financial stability. Take the sacrifice of coming here for 2 years and go from there.
College is awesome.
