Why did you choose to study at Waterloo?

Waterloo is well-known for its mathematics and co-op programs and I always enjoyed math so it was rather a natural choice.

What do you like most about being a Senior Math Faculty Ambassador?

I enjoy chatting with prospective students and parents. It's also a great way to meet other people in my faculty and program.

What has been your favourite course so far?

Math 249, it was the whole reason why I switched to my current program.

What do you do on weekends?

Play squash, curling, try different sushi restaurants, cook elaborate meals then binge watch TV shows while eating the food I cooked.

What are you planning to do after you graduate?

I plan to continue higher-education and eventually conduct research at a university.

Advice for first-year students

Don't worry too much about finding out exactly what you like. It's sometimes worth it to discover what you don't like.
