Music and chemistry

“I was always a musician, from when I was 10 years old until I was 20. I still am, I guess. I went to school for audio recording five years ago and tried to get a job in music, but it didn’t really happen for me. 

I was terrible at chemistry in high school. The first time I did Chemistry 30, I got 51%. Then I did it a second time three or four years after high school and I got 93%, so that was a big difference. 

How I got into this field, I don’t even know. I had worked in an environmental lab as a shipper-receiver, so I got a little bit of an in there and got to see what it was like. It seemed like a cool professional world to be part of. 

I came to SAIT and took Chemical Laboratory Technology. One week after I graduated, which was last May, I had a job . I did a project in my fourth semester of school, and then my first six months working at SAIT was an extension of that project. Never in a million years did I think that would happen. There was money being put into my project ― my idea ― and that very was surreal.

Every time someone asks me what I do, I still kind of cringe when I say I work at SAIT because I feel like I am showing off. I am proud of it ― it’s been a really awesome opportunity.”
