This year’s Student Awards Night made a great impression. It was the first time I had been to Progress Campus, and I arrived to find a gorgeous gala, featuring a delicious menu and on point music, all from Centennial students. Did you know that Centennial gives away a quarter million dollars in student scholarships every year? Now you know.
Though Ann Buller unfortunately could not make the ceremony, I did get to chat with someone who I hope to count as my first mentor ever: Frank Cerisano. Stay tuned.
That’s right. I have won a Cerisano scholarship for my online writing and high GPA. This is an annual scholarship funded by Frank and Georgina Cerisano, extremely successful businesspeople and philanthropists. If my career amounts to one hundreth of what theirs is, I’ll be happy. For me, this recognition is a sign that I am on the right track and need to keep pushing myself to be consistent and always improving. It’s a light during a murky time for me.
In one week, I’ll be shaking the hand of THE Ann Buller as we smile and pose for pictures at the Student Awards Night ceremony, which takes place March 11th at Centennial College’s Progress Campus. Stay tuned.
When I started this blog, I didn’t think I’d update it frequently or learn to love it. Here’s the thing about writing: it’s transformative, and if you make it fun, you’ll never want to stop.
I sat down with Rachel Kellogg of the Young Pros Project a couple weeks ago to talk about my interest in craft beer and blogging. It also gave me chance to reflect upon Centennial’s CCPR program, and pass on some advice to new students.

In one week I will be interviewed by Rachel Kellogg for her Young Professionals Project. I still don’t know how I feel about this, because I have yet to start my “career job” (aka job with a salary), but I do have some advice to offer, and other than the not having a career thing, I’m otherwise doing “all the right things.”
I am putting this into the universe, and will use this blog to track my adventures along the way. To career land!
