How I Got to Model for My Co-op
Ok, so I didn’t really become a model (sorry for the clickbait), but I did get one of the most professional photos of my life so far taken the other day for, you guessed it, my co-op.
This year, I am taking part in my first ever co-op experience! If you do not know, co-operative education is a paid internship in the field of your interest. I am a Humanities student, as well as extremely involved in extracurricular activities having to do with blogging, tour guiding, student leadership, and working in residence. So, it becomes clear, pretty quickly, that I am passionate about two things: people and UVic. Which made becoming the Co-op Recruitment Officer a natural fit.
As Recruitment Officer, I work in the Student Affairs office in the University Centre answering prospective students’ and parents’ questions through email, phone calls, face to face appointments, presentations, and occasionally going to a high school itself to meet students on their own turf to discuss UVic.
As a representative of UVic, I need a proper photo, and thus my modeling career was born. We decided to go out to Finnerty Gardens to give the photos a nice background, plus, I had never actually been there before and I am so glad we went. If you are ever looking for a beautiful hangout or study space, try the garden. At the end of the day we ended up with some beautiful shots. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the day:
