- Position: Research Lab Technician
Institution: University of British Columbia Okanagan
Right after high school I entered university to study microbiology, which had always been an interesting topic for me. I was working multiple jobs during my first two years of school to cover my bills. It was difficult to balance my work and school life. After successfully applying to MNBC everything became a little bit easier because I had more time to focus on school.
After looking into job board information for my program I knew I needed a competitive edge so I decided to seek out hands on experience. I began volunteering in a research lab at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. My supervisor later hired me back in his lab to work as a research lab technician after completing my degree and honor’s project.
I would like to thank MNBC Métis Employment and Training for providing this tremendous opportunity to complete my undergraduate education. I could not have done it without the help of MNBC!
