The transition from high school learning to tertiary learning can be alarming for many students. Not only do they physically have to enter a new environment, they also need to adopt a different way of thinking and managing themselves and their future. We’ll discuss the highlights and challenges of the student experience. We’ll also discuss ways in which you can overcome these challenges and we’ll share key lessons that can help you in your academic journey.
About our guest:
We welcome Kayla Morrison as our guest. Kayla studied her BSc degree in Food Science from 2018 to 2021 and graduated in December 2021. She studied this degree because she loves science and believes that there’s always something new to discover in this limitless field of study. During her student journey she held various leadership positions, including member of the university residence House Committee and member of the AgriSciences Student Association (ASA). In the ASA, she focused on Community Interaction because she believes that you grow with people.
Kayla is creative-minded and loves to try new things. She enjoys opportunities and experiences that stimulate her mind and help with her to improve and grow. Her favourite quote by C.S. Lewis says that “There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” She believes that it’s important to find balance in every area of her life ~ So when she’s not busy with self-improvement, you’ll find Kayla spending time with her puppy dog, working out at the gym, and swimming. She also loves to explore new business opportunities, spend time with her closest friends, take drives to unwind and recharge her social battery, and read self-help books.
