Several years ago in highschool, I wanted to document a student exchange trip I was selected for. Instead of being the narrator/host, I ended up being the camera person. How upset was I? It was my idea and I ended up behind the scenes. A story all too familar… I bit my tongue, did my due dilligence, kept faith and carried on. My time would come, I knew this.

And it did.

Watch a day in the life of a graduating student here!

To have this day captured on film, in this caliber, is just amazing. My sincerest thanks to the entire Marketing and Communications team at the University of the Fraser Valley, friends, family and foes — in one way or another, you’ve inspired, encouraged and fueled my commitment to excellence and passion to persevere. I thank you.
