What is your story? What doesn't your resume tell us about you?
When I was 16, my Grandfather passed away after a long battle with cancer. After his death, I made a promise to give back by volunteering at my local Hospice House. The North Okanagan Hospice House is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality end of life care, and it was here, through my volunteering and interaction with patients, that I realized that I wanted to help to improve the quality of life of these patients who were suffering in their final days.
Since then it has been my career and life goals to pursue a degree in chemical engineering with a minor in biomedical engineering where I can dedicate my life to improving the condition of palliative patients.
Describe your dream job or career.
I have two dream jobs, firstly to open and operate my own Biomedical Engineering Research Lab where we manufacture and create medical devices and instruments to revolutionize the medical industry and improve the quality of life of palliative patients.
Secondly, which slightly ties into the first, I would love to operate and work in a building that is run solely on renewable energy and I would love to have a job in the energy and clean tech sector where I am developing technology and creating a market for profitable renewable energy.
