On the ice, Brianna Delmaestro brims with confidence. But when it comes to her education, the gold-medal figure skater is less certain. “I’m not quite sure what I want to do,” she says.
That’s why taking General Studies is a perfect fit. There’s no pressure to pick a major or program. Instead, Brianna can choose the courses she wants in the humanities, sciences, social sciences, performing arts and business based on her individual goals and interests, while earning credits that can lead to a diploma or transfer to university. In her first semester, she took a course on nutrition, which has inspired her to possibly study dietetics at UBC.
“As an athlete, I have a passion for nutrition and healthy eating. I would love to study the area further and maybe pursue it as a career,” she says.
