Hannah Gardner

Hometown: Markham, Ont.

Why I went to business school? I loved the idea of having an endless number of opportunities upon completing my degree. Business school has taught me a number of professional and personal skills I’ll be able to bring to my future endeavours.

One thing I learned at Smith I’ll never forget is: Porter’s Five Forces.

A highlight of my time at Smith: Being involved in a variety of ComSoc committees provided me with some of my favourite memories. Meeting new people, planning events and conferences alongside friends, being mentored by upper years, and then later being able to give that advice back to younger students, were all highlights over the past four years.

A professor who especially inspired me: Professor Ken Wong. Professor Wong always came across as caring about the success of every single one of his students. He recognizes your personal strengths while inspiring you to always do better.

Best advice to future students: Don’t do it alone. Rely on your fellow classmates and friends to help you through the next four years. It’ll be a lot more fun that way!
