"I had to rebuild my life," he says. "Getting reset to nothing and having to rebuild my sense of self and my physical health definitely strengthened my resilience and my ability to step into new things."
Sharing his Experience
Nick’s personal experiences as a wheelchair user gave him the perspective to develop tools to help others. After finding an accessibility ramp blocked by snow on his way to a final university exam, Nick wanted a way to warn others of incidents like this. He was inspired to create a map that rated the accessibility of buildings around his campus. He won funding for his project, hired developers, and delivered a proof of concept.
Pivot into Tech
"I had a non-traditional background for tech, and no experience in finance, but am so thankful for the recruiter who kept an open mind when interviewing me," says Nick. "From the very beginning of my time at RBC, I’ve seen what a healthy and inclusive work environment looks like."
"I’ve found RBC to be a place of endless growth, possibility and exploration. Our commitment to tech, to being forward-thinking, combined with such a positive atmosphere and our impact on the community, it just sets the standard for what companies should be. I see myself being here for a long time."
