Waterloo Engineering in one word:


I choose Waterloo Engineering because:

The opportunities the programs offer for both personal and professional growth.

The best thing about my program is:

Its a new field which creates a lot of opportunity for growth.

About my Co-op experience:

I am in E co-op for Spring 2020 and I am really enjoying my time. I am learning how to be self-sufficient and take more initiative. There is so much support for entrepreneurs at uwaterloo!

I wish I had known before I came:

Be fearless when sharing your ideas! If there's something you're passionate about then go for it!

Outside the classroom, I’m involved with:

My company Olnaire. I like to connect with the entrepreneurs at the university so I often attend events at Concept and participate in Pitch competitions. I volunteer in a professor's lab and I am a member of the Hip Hop Club as well.

One more thing about me:

I am a social entrepreneur and I believe it is important to advocate for social justice issues.
