Why I love my program

I love my program because it challenges me academically and it has a focus on relevant subjects related to my career aspirations. Also, I love the flexibility in the program, specifically with regards to having the Spring Term off, because it gives me the opportunity to pursue volunteering opportunities, various extra-curricular opportunities and also gives me the time to study for professional school entrance exams.

Why University of Waterloo?

I'm originally from the Kitchener-Waterloo community! My family and I immigrated here in 2005, and this community's people, public services and resources have allowed my family to not only live in Canada but thrive as well.  I ultimately chose the University of Waterloo because I'm passionate about giving back to the community that has given my family and I so much, and I'm looking forward to possibly working here in the future as well.
