That being said, it would also be an understatement to say that stirring up enough courage to send in an application was one of the best decisions I have made in my life thus far. As fate would have it, I was chosen to be one of the lucky hundred delegates, and I still feel so fortunate to be given that opportunity to this day. Kingston, albeit foreign territory at first, soon grew to feel like home. In what seemed like a blink of an eye, suddenly there I was sitting in Goodes Hall, surrounded by the faces of possible future classmates. It was strange, how an atmosphere so new could feel so right in such a short period of time, but it did. The wise words of the QLEAD exec team still linger in my mind, and I learned so much more about the program from them than I would've been able to search the entire world wide web for. They gave me insights to the campus life, the many different extra-curriculars, how everyone is so willing to help one another, and just how close-knit the Commerce faculty truly is. As the Deputy Prime Minister of my student government, I feel that I would truly benefit from being able to work with other student leaders. Furthermore, I believe I would obtain the best education possible in the small classes of eighty students that Queens offers, under the supervision of Canada's top professors. If given the huge opportunity, Queen's Commerce is something I would definitely love (and possibly give up an arm and a leg) to be apart of.
