Thank you to Mentor College alumnus (Class of 1996) Aron Levitz for taking time out of his very busy schedule to spend yesterday afternoon with our Grade 12 English students! As head of Wattpad Studios, Aron’s role includes “helping the global entertainment industry discover amazing storytellers and incredible stories that can be adapted for film, TV, digital, and print.”
Aron related his personal experience to the students and reinforced a very important message, “you never know where life is going to take you…don’t worry if at 17 you don’t know what you are going to do with your life.” By staying true to his values and interests, Aron managed to take the best of three fields he loves – journalism, music, and engineering – and merge them into a job that he loves doing each and every day.
It wasn’t all business during his visit. Aron also shared memories of the pranks he and classmates would play on their teachers (including event host Mrs. McGivern). Thank you again to Aron Levitz for an informative and engaging afternoon! We wish him continued success with Wattpad Studios!
