Sana Ahmad

Assistant Museum Curator (Winter 2019)

Sana holding a stick in Bancroft, ONI am a second year Environmental Science student at the University of Waterloo pursuing a specialization in Geoscience. I have always loved learning about our planet and its stunningly complex geology, so I cannot wait to share that passion with our visitors.

At four years old, I started my first Rock and Mineral collection. It basically spiraled from there, and now I'm lucky enough to work and study in a building where I am literally surrounded by the objects of my fascination. I can't imagine anything better!

In my spare time, I love to read, take photographs, and go on hikes. I hope to see you at the museum soon!
