Day One Career Change

My most memorable moment was on my first day when all the Science students got a talk from David Suzuki. Mid-way through his speech he asked how many of us wanted to be doctors, and almost all our hands went up. Then he told us that those of us who didn't raise our hands were the ones who might have a chance to be a doctor. His point was that what we hope to do going into university might not be what we end up doing, and that's not a bad thing. I never forgot that and it helped influence me.
