"I chose Human Kinetics at Windsor because growing up I was always passionate about sports, and dreamed of one day working in the industry. Once I arrived and started classes, I realized the potential to achieve my dreams, and never looked back. My recommendation for current students is to go get experience and make connections! Volunteer for events, connect with people on LinkedIn, and never be afraid to apply for a job, even if you don’t think you’re qualifi ed. Building your resume and your network will only help you later on!"
