“I better understand myself, what I enjoy, and who I want to become”
MA in Professional Communication
“I believe it’s the face-to-face connections created during the on-campus residencies that are the key to the success of Royal Roads. It is by spending time and working together that deeper connections are made, and collaboration is much easier in person.
The campus is serene, beautiful, and peaceful, providing the perfect space in nature to reflect on learnings, life, and dreams. I spent a lot of time walking the trails and sitting by the water, and I feel this helped me work through the content covered in class as well as my personal thoughts.
I am now a much better version of the former me. The biggest change is within my perspective and confidence. Previously, I would try and fit my dreams and goals into a 9-5, stable, low-risk box. Now I dream big and understand what I want can be achieved in a completely outside-the-box manner. I better understand myself, what I enjoy, and who I want to become. I have much more confidence and I’m more easily able to influence change. I believe in myself and my abilities, and this has changed my life in all aspects.”
