Degree Title: 
BA Honours, Major in ID with Area of Emphasis in Economic and Business Development

I am going into my 5th year of study as an International Development major with an area of emphasis in Economics and Business Development. My time in IDEV has been an amazing experience! It has introduced me to new ways of thinking and opportunities to apply my studies in a real life context. In the winter of 3rd year I had the opportunity to study in Guatemala for a semester. Here I was able to combine the joys of travelling and being immersed in a new culture, while learning about the history and development of Guatemala. Through this trip I was introduced to Project Harvest, an Ontario based charity working in rural Guatemala and whom I have continued to volunteer with once I returned to Guelph. In my final year of study I look forward to continue exploring the economics of community development and how this can be applied within Canada and abroad!
