My name is Justin McKernan and am currently a student at Humber College in Public Relations. It is a fantastic program and I really enjoy it. For years after highschool I didn't know what to take post secondary so I worked for years and eventually ended up at Sheridan College doing a program called Art Fundamentals. I really enjoyed it however art as a career is not my niche in life. Being an energetic male who loves talk and communicate, P.R. fit very well into who I am. I am now in my third year at Humber and am about to finish up and am looking forward to getting out into the working world.

St. Michael's College School
St. Michaels College school gave me the greatest highschool education that anyone could ask for. To this day I still have strong ties to the people I met there and will always have these bonds in place. It was a second family t me.
