Meet Preet! Stenberg’s Optician Student

Makeup artist who found her fit as an Optician There’s a saying that elders always tell us, “One should never stop learning”. By trade, I’m a hair and makeup artist. By education, I’m a historian mixed with a little philosopher’s guilt. But on every path I’ve treaded, life’s sent me some random detour I was not prepared to travel. So,…

Even at the end of the program, I felt like I was running around the Stenberg campus to print that last essay or those nearly unending PowerPoint notes.

From Summer to Autumn

I can’t believe that fall is upon us once again. I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

Experiencing Vancouver Through Volunteering

After hearing a moving speech from two high school students in January 2018, the idea of volunteering around Vancouver for an entire year hit me and I thought it was just that, an idea.
