While at the University of Waterloo, Sabrina has taken advantage of the global opportunities that the school has to offer - including a co-op term in Switzerland. When on-campus in Waterloo, she is part of the Archery Club and in her spare time she likes to practice and play the piano.
“I really like the culture at Waterloo. It’s so inclusive – you get to meet a lot of students from different backgrounds and a lot of other people who are passionate about math. Interacting with them on a daily basis is really exciting.”
