Ju Yoo, a St. Michael’s alumnus joined us on the 18th January to deliver a fantastic presentation on his journey through medical school. Ju left St. Michael’s in 2012 and is in his very final year of study at Imperial College. Ju explained not just about the challenges of medicine but how he prepared himself for selection – he began to outline his personal statement as early as Year 11, he kept a log of the activities he participated in and each time reflected on each activity in terms of what he gained from the experience. Ju has kindly agreed to return next year to speak to us again.
St. Michael’s continues to be blessed by the kind support of our alumni and our parents, who frequently visit school to deliver talks on their own careers and industries. This provides unique opportunities for our students to hear first hand insights into possible career paths of interest, informing options chosen and work experience too.
