“It is a tremendous honour to be valedictorian for the Saint John campus. I am so grateful for every member of the UNB community who provided me with the opportunities that got me where I am today. I hope as a representative of the graduating class during this time of uncertainty, I can remind my fellow graduates there are brighter days ahead.”
