Ashley Choma

My career goals are first to finish my BBA at NAIT, get my CGA designation and then go to work for a private accounting firm.

I attend SAIT Polytechnic and will graduate this year with my certificate in Civil Engineering Technology focusing on Municipal Services. After I work for some time, I plan to transfer to UBC and finish my Civil Engineering degree there.

After I complete my final year at George Brown College, I will be a fully-trained goldsmith ready to begin a career in the jewellery field. With specialized skills in gemsetting, repair, and computer-aided design, I plan to continue in the family business and open my own store in Victoria, BC.

Jacey Gibb

My goal for the future is to become an elementary school teacher. I can only hope that I am able to make as great an impact on my students as my teachers made on me.

Connor Shannon

I am a second year science student at the University of Alberta. Science has been a long-time passion of mine, along with music and the outdoors. Right now I’m working towards a molecular biology and biochemistry major because of the exciting advances in the field. However, I love all areas of science, and my primary career goal is to help develop science and technology to mitigate the major problems humanity is facing in the 21st century.

Mikaela Wiberg

I plan to begin my career in Central Alberta. I am majoring in land reclamation but am open to any environmental career path. My goal is to become a consultant for a reclamation company. I would like to thank ARTA for generously awarding me a scholarship that will aid me to get closer to my chosen career.
