How do you feel Quest prepared you for your current endeavours?
I learned how to manage a heavy workload because of Quest and it has only helped me with my studies as I transitioned to a more “traditional” university. Quest also played a significant role in helping me develop and nourish my soft skills; allowing me to convey information effectively, and create and build new relationships easily.
What did you do for your Experiential Learning Block?
I was an intern at Sustainable Solutions International, learning the ins and outs of the business.
Did you take a field course? If so, tell us about it.
Nope, but I went on a semester exchange Zeppelin University if that counts.
