Why I love my program

I love my program because I love learning about how things work. With biochemistry I get to learn about how humans and other living things work on a microscopic level.

Why University of Waterloo?

I chose to come to Waterloo because of all of the knowledgeable and friendly people I met when I was first touring the university. They made me feel comfortable in Waterloo and from them I knew that there would be many people to help support me through my next five years.
