As a mature student, I feel privileged to attend TRU. My children, Hannah and Kyle, are my inspiration for working hard and succeeding on my own terms. I want them to know that I value life long learning and personal growth. History 1120 has contributed to my knowledge about the development of Canada, and has fostered new skills geared at critical thinking about what history is and how it is done. The aim of this e portfolio is to showcase the evolution of my learning over the course of this semester.
