Summary

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.
