While at Lake Forest she was able to experience a variety of courses from the sociology of religion to an independent study on music production, which culminated in a five song album. She met life long friends, and developed necessary life skills.
Upon graduation, Maria returned home to Nova Scotia to study law. “The study habits, time management skills, and confidence I gained while at Lake Forest College were integral to my success in law school,” Maria says.
Currently, Maria works as an articled clerk with a public defence firm in Nova Scotia. She represents youth involved with the criminal justice system. She plans to pursue her masters of law and eventually her doctorate.
Maria said, “I hope to become a law professor and follow in the footsteps of the many professors at Lake Forest College whom have inspired me, without whom I would not be the person I am today.”
How did you choose your area of study?
Entering Lake Forest I intended to study English. However, after conversations with Don Meyer and becoming more involved in the Music Department I realized that I was eager to learn more about music production and recording. Choosing to double major in English and Music was probably one of the best decisions I made at Lake Forest.
