BCIT Marketing Communications student Mitchell Garrett is a goal keeper, not just on the ice playing para hockey but in every aspect of his life — from crafting a new career to advocating for people with disabilities.

“No matter what situation you’re in, you have to have a next step,” explains Mitchell. “I always have a goal.”
