What are people saying about Virtual Visits with Dr. Jackie?
GR 11 TEACHER
I've invited Dr. Jackie into my classroom for the past 5+ years and she's always been so informative and engaging - my students have always enjoyed her presentations and talked about it after-the-fact.
GR 12 TEACHER
[After the presentation] one student mentioned working hard to get a good average so she could go to McMaster "just like Dr. Prime did". It was one of those moments that really struck me how she obviously immediately connected with Jackie's journey.
GR 12 STUDENT
Dr. Jackie was extremely enthusiastic and influenced how I will approach my future goals and career planning, inspiring me to think about my future options and what I want to do!
GR 10 STUDENT
Dr. Jackie was a phenomenal speaker who really engaged us as she talked about her experiences. Her story made me realize that if you're truly passionate about something, that's when you will thrive!
