Why I Chose to Study Abroad

Program: Creative Advertising
Work Abroad Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

As a Creative Advertising student at Seneca College, I was constantly exposed to innovative ideas and creative environments, which inspired me to want to think beyond boundaries and borders. The experience I have gained in Film and Media production, motivated me to go out and seek a global understanding of this field, and to pursue further international learning opportunities.

I wanted to explore opportunities that would help me not only learn about the business of media and advertising production, but at the same time, allow me to experience a different, yet vibrant culture.

This goal encouraged me to look for opportunities abroad. I started my journey by approaching the International Service office at Seneca. They were extremely helpful in guiding me to find a real-world opportunity that would fuel my entrepreneurial dreams.

I continued working towards identifying opportunities abroad and with the help of the International Services office; I was able to participate in The Ontario Global Edge Program, which is funded by the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.

I am excited to be traveling to Kuala Lumpur, where I will be working for a Production House that shoots international films in Malaysia. I hope more and more students from Seneca identify with these opportunities and make use of them to gain professional and international experiences.  I look forward to sharing my journey of working in Malaysia in my next blog post.

  1. Thank you for another informative website. Where else could I get that kind of info written in such an ideal way? I have a project that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such info.
