My interest in natural and holistic medicine has led me to want to study Traditional Chinese Medicine, specifically acupuncture. It is my desire to learn this ancient art of healing in order to assist those in need and to help individuals live their lives to the fullest. I moved from Ottawa and I chose to attend the CCATCM not only for its location in beautiful Halifax, but also because I trust the associations it has with other TCM colleges will greatly benefit me as a student. I also believe that the size of the school and the student body, as well as the experienced teaching staff will be beneficial to me as I will have more one-on-one time with the faculty. I hope to make a positive contribution to CCATCM through my positive outlook and helpful attitude.
