Before applying to Burman University I knew I wanted to do something involving medicine and helping people, so I signed up for Premed and some of my colleagues who would later become my close friends where doing wellness management. Since the two disciplines were similar from one another we'd always find each other in classes and staying at night in the mezzanine doing essays and studying. It was during this time I became intrigued by the wellness program. Consistently I found myself more interested in my colleague's classes and what they were learning instead of my own. So after lots of prayers, research and countless advice from friends, family, and my RA, I switched majors. If given the choice again to do everything all over, I'd do the exact same thing. Not only did I make friends for life, I got to experience memories that I would have not come across elsewhere – like working at Mountainview Summer Camp. I still reflect on my time at Burman with a smile when sitting at a coffee shop thinking about my life thus far. I would not be working in mental health if it weren't for the staff in the Wellness department – Mr. Irrigang, Mrs.Lehmann, and Mr. Donkor. Not only did you teach us the basics of the human body and simple remedies I still use and recommend to people, but you became a part of every students' life involved in the Wellness program. If it were not for the diversity of practices and subjects learned in the Wellness Program, then, I would not have been able to get an internship at the Canadian Mental Health Association. If you are thinking about a program with flexibility, hands-on teaching, and staff that care about their students, then not only is the Wellness Program for you, but Burman is for you!
