Defining Leadership

Meet Serena- One of the many talented women who put her Brescia business foundation to work

Serena Kung came to Brescia because she appreciated its special position within the broader Western community. She was impressed by our beautiful campus and was called to our University’s internationally-recognized School of Foods and Nutrition. Her seamless transition into Brescia included making lifelong connections, thoroughly enjoying her interactive courses and taking part in the wide range of initiatives that tend to be oversaturated at larger institutions.

"What I love about Brescia is you can really find your footing and feel like you are part of something. Thanks to all the opportunities available there, it kickstarts your journey in any direction you choose to go. When applied to Ivey, I used my Brescia experiences to show how much of an impact I was making. It’s not nearly as easy to demonstrate that level of initiative at other universities."

Clara Sebben's Brescia Journey

A luxury residence suite all to herself, the ability to get to know her classmates and professors on a personal level and the close proximity to Western are just a few reasons Clara Sebben decided to attend Brescia. When choosing where she would pursue her degree, Clara’s top priority was a place that would support her wellbeing and academic success. Brescia’s commitment to student development empowered Clara to find her passion and nurture her personal and academic talents

"At Brescia, you actually get everything: the small, engaging classes, so much individualized attention, intellectually stimulating conversations and lifeenriching relationships. You walk around at Brescia and everyone smiles and greets you by name. Then, you walk right across the street to engage with the broader university community and take advantage of everything a huge institution, like Western, has to offer."

Brescia's Fearless Graduates Make It Without Ever Having to Fake it

By applying everything she did at Brescia, Holly Clemas curated an attention-getting portfolio that secured her spot within Canada’s leading university fashion program. Even before coming to Brescia, Holly was fully aware of what business classes could hold at a co-ed school. She had no desire to get talked over or intimated while trying to focus on bettering herself and her grades.

"Leadership is modeled by every person and within every program at Brescia. You see this really diverse representation of what that word means. I like to think I don’t fit in the mould of a typical businessperson. I have a personality that wouldn’t necessarily get captured on paper. Who I am wasn’t just allowed for at Brescia – it was encouraged."
