Alice Lopes - Brazillian Student

“Don’t limit yourself to your classes and don’t be afraid to think outside of the box!”

Diploma- Media Communications

Humber College was my college of choice based on the variety of courses and opportunities to network with industry professionals. The best thing about my classes are the labs where you learn how to edit pictures, movies, and videos through Adobe programs. We also design posters and learn how to create visually informative targeted content.  To ensure my success at Humber, I built a close network with my professors and got a part-time role as a student ambassador at the International Centre. My role as an ambassador has allowed me to experience how things work in Canada as specific as formalities of e-mails to more generally the work culture. As an ambassador I’ve been able to apply these creative techniques from my classes into creating my own projects and videos in my role. Prospective students should know that Canadian life begins with a good pair of winter boots and a warm winter jacket. Most importantly, don’t limit yourself only to your classes and don't be afraid to think outside the box! Participate in events and workshops in the Humber community. Toronto has made me grow as a person through my friendships with people of diverse cultures and opening myself to understanding other people’s perspectives.
