The social science program provided me with the academic foundation, which led me to completing my undergrad at the university of Ottawa, where I became interested in pursuing a career in law. During my undergrad studies, I met a few Indigenous lawyers who inspired to apply to law school. After law school, I started my career working in Toronto where I was able to expand my network and build my technical legal skill set.  Heritage was an excellent starting place for me. I enjoyed the smaller campus, where I was able to know everyone. The professors were kind and patient with the students. I am grateful to everyone that I have met on my journey and I hope that I can continue to give back in the years ahead. (Photo: Kenya-Jade Pinto)

As a result of successfully completing the Computer Science program, I was able to acquire a job that I love, bought myself a car and my own house, and I am able to enjoy leisure traveling on a regular basis. I thank the faculty of the Computer Science program and the program itself for setting me up for this amazing life in the field I knew I was meant to be a part of.
