Gurlin

Year: 3

How I get involved: I get involved on campus and in my faculties! On campus I am an ambassador at the Visitor's Center and have been a Residence Life Don in REV. Within Science I have been involved with Let's Talk Science, running Biotechnology workshops for high school students, and Fusion, a student run conference for science and business. Within the School of Accounting and Finance I have volunteered with the Internal Events team with the student association (AFSA). Other than that I love to attend events that the different student associations plan, especially end of term celebrations.

Why I love my program

My program is unique to the University! It allows me to study science while working towards a professional designation. I find biotech fascinating and accounting challenging, and the combination helps me stay focused. I look forward to starting a career in science with a professional edge.

Why University of Waterloo?

COOP! I wanted the opportunity to try different jobs before deciding what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing.
