“I am an international student from Jamaica and I am a proud Alumni of Algoma University. The University has molded me into the person I am today. I had great mentors who guided me throughout my undergraduate studies, which helped me to get into my Masters program. Also, I received a life changing internship at Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). I worked as an Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Specialist. I was able to build a good network with my managers and co-workers. All thanks to Algoma University for providing me with this job.”
