Arts One instilled in me a love for learning that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. When I was in Arts One, I never felt like I was just checking off boxes in order to gain a credit — I genuinely loved to be there. Moving forward as a student at UBC, this motivation gave me the confidence to choose to study and pursue the things I am passionate about, rather than trying to fit into some standardized definition of success.
