Don’t let anyone else decide your story

While traveling in the Middle East, Linda Todd contracted a rare lifethreatening brain infection. Despite being given only a 5% chance of recovery, she fought through and survived—but returned to Canada in a wheelchair and unable to speak. “It was emotionally devastating,” she says, “but I’m a firm believer in not letting anyone else decide your story.” Linda was determined to recover. “I asked my kids to help teach me how to speak again,” she says, “and I joined as many Toastmasters events as I could. At first, I could only walk from the front door to the sidewalk, but I tried a little farther each day. It was a big deal when I could finally jump over a puddle again.”

Refusing to miss out any longer Fighting her way back to health inspired Linda to finally go back to school. As a Grade 12 student, she had planned to room with her best friend at university. But in February, her friend was killed in a car accident. Because of this tragedy, Linda postponed her education and moved to California with her parents. She ended up working in Alberta and then BC. She got married and had kids. “The plan was that my husband would go to school first, and then I would go. But we broke up before I got my turn,” she says. But now this mother of five and grandmother of two had a newfound determination. “I’d accomplished so much since being virtually declared dead, and I wasn’t missing out on anything I wanted from life anymore.” she says.

Starting university—33 years later Linda had always been fascinated with the medical field, and the role of a medical office assistant seemed like the perfect fit.

“In my research, UFV came out on top for high quality at a good price,” she says. “My daughter attends UFV and has only good things to say about the instructors, class size, and the quality of education. And hospitals are looking for medical office assistants who studied at reputable universities.” Linda began classes this past September. “I’m in a class with students the same age as my kids,” she says. “But I love it. I get along well with them. No one in my class ever looks at me like ‘What are you doing here?’” After she completes her classes and hospital practicum, Linda will be qualified to work as a medical office assistant. “I’ll bring hope and joy and positivity to that setting,” she says. “I’ve been on the other end and know how it feels. No matter what your role in healthcare, to believe your patient will get through—that’s a huge gift to people.”

Enjoying the journey Looking ahead, Linda is glad she’s insisted on writing her own story. “I’ll feel settled to finally be doing something I love and am trained for,” she says. “This opportunity has been passing me by for 33 years, and I’ve finally grabbed it.” But her challenges have taught her not to forget to enjoy the moment, and in this case, that means the long-delayed experience of being a university student. “Attending university means something to me,” she says. “This is the real deal. Through all the challenges I had, I’ll be so happy be a part of the UFV graduation ceremony. It will be a crowning moment when I walk across that stage.” Her advice for others wondering if it’s too late to start something new: “It’s never too late to do the things you’ve always wanted to do,” she says. “There is no end line that says ‘it’s over now’; you choose where the line is.”

OUR COVER STORY

The right path forward

The missing piece

Preparing for success

After 10 years at Golden Oak Corporate Services Ltd., Ben Meyer had become someone others trusted to do quality work; he began seeing opportunities to take on more responsibility. Quality professional training was the missing piece he needed to take his career to the next level.

Ben has been particularly impressed with the ability of his instructor, Sabrina Ngo, to translate course work into practical application. “Sabrina makes sure that everyone understands the material. She finds a way to make it relevant—whether through real life examples or hypothetical situations,” he says.

Finding the right program

The program includes a wide variety of people, from recent high school graduates to parents going back to school after their children have left home. Ben appreciates the diversity. “We even have an art student and someone with a music background,” he says. “Everyone brings something unique to the discussion. Coming from a professional environment, I appreciate that instructors and students all treat each other with respect—as professionals.”

Ben’s company was willing to invest in him, but Ben wasn’t sure where to start. After a career aptitude test confirmed his interest in the paralegal field, he connected with UFV and was helped by Admissions Assistant Rosemary Wolf. “I told Rosemary I was interested in the program and that my schooling background came with a different set of experiences. I wasn’t sure if I could get in.” he says. “She patiently walked me through each step. She made the application process really easy.” Ben was then connected with Paralegal Program Coordinator, Ryan Coreau. After learning about Ben’s background, Ryan suggested he complete the Legal Administrative Assistant program before pursuing his Paralegal diploma. Ben took Ryan’s advice and, looking back, is thankful he did. “Now that I’m halfway through the program, I really see how this knowledge will help me be successful later,” he says.

Ben plans to ladder his studies into the Paralegal program. With his eye toward a corporate secretary role within his firm, he understands the necessity of balancing real life experience with quality education. “A lot of our clients are comfortable with me and know I can do the job,” he says, “but the skills I’m learning now will help me take the next step in my career.”

Time for a change A leap into the unknown “I knew if I didn’t make a change I would regret it for the rest of my life.” Evander Boudreau could no longer ignore the fact that it was time for a new direction. “I lost the passion for my work,” he says. “To be honest, not enjoying my job made me very unhappy in my life.” Evander, who had grown up in Chilliwack, was only 26 but had been working in the food service industry for 10 years. He knew it was time for a big change and started researching training options for something he had always been interested in—welding. “I’ve always been fascinated by how much goes on in welding,” he says. “There is much more to it than just joining two pieces of metal together; there is so much science behind it.” After researching his options, Evander settled on UFV’s Welding Foundations Certificate, a 34-week-long full-time program. “I chose UFV because of the great reputation they have,” he says. “Their certificates are well recognized.” But having worked his entire adult life in one industry, leaving it wasn’t an easy step to take. “Finally making the decision to change careers and following through with it was a huge challenge,” says Evander. “Welding was a completely new direction. I’d be starting from zero again. I think my biggest challenge was getting over the fear of failure.”

Powering through the challenges “In the end, I overcame these fears by realizing how unhappy I was in my current career,” says Evander. “I decided to just put everything I had into the welding program.” As part of a partnership program between UFV and Seabird Island College, he started the Welding Foundations program in January 2016.

WINTER/SPRING2017

After a decade away from school, he initially faced some challenges. “There was a lot of memorization required for the different functions involved in welding,” he says. “I also had to train my body to handle labour and learn how to use tools properly.” But, determined to learn and understand the material, Evander pushed through—supported by his family, his friends, and the dedicated instructors at UFV. “The instructors were very approachable when you needed help,” he says. “They wanted to see you succeed. If you didn’t understand something, they would explain it in different ways.” Evander loved how hands-on the program was, and how he and his classmates spent most of their time gaining practical skills in the shop. “My favourite thing about the program was that I could apply what I learned in my everyday life,” he says.

Doing what you love Evander successfully completed his program August 26, 2016, only six and a half months after beginning that January. The same time a year before, he was trapped in a career he disliked and uncertain how he could change his situation. Now, his future was still uncertain, but he was certified in a field he loved and had several opportunities in front of him. Within three weeks of completing the program, he was hired by a manufacturing company in the welding and fabrication trade. Having made a complete change of careers, Evander is starting from the bottom again, but slowly gaining more experience in his trade. Now, he has a long-term plan he is passionate about: getting as much experience and knowledge as a welder and fabricator as he can and, someday, becoming an instructor. And what would Evander say to a friend thinking about going back to school to change careers? “Just go for it,” he says. “For me, education has opened up so many windows of opportunity. I’m grateful I took the leap.”
