Founder & Visionary
Being a student myself and looking to work on building my career I recognize the confusion, conflict, and insecurities that plague those looking to find a clear career path, and taking the initial steps toward a profession.
Making a choice that requires you to dedicate much of your time, energy, and monetary funds is an investment which requires much soul searching which can be stressful if there are external influences. Like many others graduate students I was looking for a job once I completed my post secondary program and was not sure where to start.
Fortunately I have mentors and friends who shared their wealth of knowledge.
I wholeheartedly believe in the saying:
“You give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. You teach a man to fish you give an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime.”
My goal is to create an online community of individuals who wish to share their wealth of knowledge to students starting their post-secondary education, professionals who wish to advance their career, and lifelong learners.
GradeMyEducation will be that community.
Growing up I had the notion that becoming successful meant that I need to become a doctor, engineer or lawyer. This was reiterated throughout my family my whole life. Unfortunately, I did not have the guidance or tools necessary in exploring & seeking out the many numerous career opportunities that I could have taken up, most of all, going into a career path that I would enjoy.
In my search for a career, I sought assistance from councillors who had only undermine my abilities and gave me programs just to get me out their office… what a waste of taxpayer dollars. By this time I was graduating high school and still uncertain about what I was doing.
High school had not prepared me for the challenge that awaited in University/college & by taking programs that I would later regret, I had put myself through years of stress, mental breakdowns, all-nighters & most of all, trapped in a circle of debt. If only I had the right tools or assistance in deciding on a program for myself… This is where my longtime friend/founder Tuan & I came with the realization of creating a self-help/user-friendly tool.
Like what Steve Jobs once said, “if you give them the tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them” we believe in the potential of students choosing careers that they value because everyone has a part in their role.
To help students who face the burden of having of deciding a post-secondary program for themselves. We want to relieve that burden by providing reviews from programs taken by graduates and current attendees. This is to help students gain better overall reviews about programs that are being offered at a specific school across Ontario. Students transitioning from high school, coming abroad, and lifelong learners are provided the necessary tools on Grade my Education to make their transition seamless.
We seek to provide the tools and insight to help students figure out the program of their choice.
Our team developed this website to provide all of the necessary tools and guides to help make your smooth transition through school, career, and life so you can achieve meaningful long term goals.
