Michael (Rocky) Petkov is attending Queen’s University at Kingston, Ontario for a B.Comp(Hon) in Computing with a minor in Economics. In addition he’s on the board of a student housing co-op as well as hosting a radio show/ podcast.

Rocky learned important life lessons at New Roots, “More than anything else it taught me that to really get ahead one has to be self driven! So much of the work… especially in senior year is all based upon how one can be self motivated to go the extra mile. In college, it’s been easy to slip into a passive role but my New Roots experience has helped me to fight troughs and eventually going that extra mile.”
