Student Profile(s)

Dorine Akwiri

Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I love expanding my knowledge and learning new things. A graduate degree seemed like the best idea for better future career prospects in International development. Also, this was a chance to build my expertise in my area of interest.

Why did you decide to study at UBC?
UBC is one of the top-ranked universities in Canada and across the world. I chose UBC as it promised excellent resources for intellectual stimulation, diversity and professional advancement. The fact that UBC sits in Vancouver, which is considered warmer than most parts of Canada made my decision a lot easier.

What is it specifically, that your program offers, that attracted you?
The MPPGA program has a lot of attractive and unique qualities. But if I have to zero in on one, it will have to be the Global Policy Project. This allows students to travel and engage with policymakers and civil society, apply methods and skills learned in the classroom and depend on their creative thinking to solve a real-world policy challenge across the world.

What was the best surprise about UBC or life in Vancouver?
The best surprise for me is the pleasant local population that is multicultural and very accommodating of the diversity of cultures and opinions.

What aspect of your graduate program do you enjoy the most or are looking forward to with the greatest curiosity?
I enjoy the networking events held by my program. I also enjoy attending workshops aimed at building our skills beyond the classroom. But I am looking forward to doing my Global Policy Project and challenge myself on a real-world policy problem.

What do you like to do for fun or relaxation?
I like spending time with friends doing anything there is to do from cooking to exploring new places in Vancouver or to just making coffee. With the right company, anything is fun!.

What advice do you have for new graduate students?
Spend time doing what you love. UBC has a wide range of facilities and opportunities that students can be a part of. Do not be sucked into the demanding academic life and forget about all these available resources--workshops, nature and work opportunities that can also be fulfilling both personally and professionally.
