The career planning stage at UNISUS is incredible in guiding me in the pathways which is right for me, not only in terms of which career, but where to pursue my medical career and program, and what that means for my career. When I chose neuro-medicine, I then had to decide my pathway. I've decided to study in Mexico, where I can go straight into medicine vs 4 yr pre-med in Canada. I was also looking at Australia. With medicine I need to work where I study.

Most important to me about UNISUS was the friends I made from around the world. They are like family to me, lifetime friends that are real, whatever is happening, wherever you are. Learning about the different cultures from around the world is amazing, and how to talk to people from different cultures, and what's important to them, really opened my perspective.

I learnt self motivation and self leadership; to take care of myself, to be self motivated, independent, confident and resilient to face anything that lies ahead.

The IB-DP program is really helping me learn about myself, and learn what I love doing and what I want to pursue. It's preparing me for my future. It's a difficult programme, but once you learn to balance your time and yourself emotionally, mentally, physically, it's an incredible programme. It teaches me how to learn, and how to think; it's not about learning facts.
