Stream of study: Regular
Career goal: I'm hoping to become a doctor in the field of paediatrics or gynacology/obstetrics (but we'll see where life takes me)
Favourite food: Ice cream! (even in the dead of winter)
How I get involved: I actively try to get involved in many different ways! I volunteer with Science Outreach, Let's Talk Science, and the Biology Undergraduate Society. I also do many part-time jobs including a Peer Leader in residence, a teaching assistant, a tutor, and more. I love being involved in Orientation, especially within the faculty. Last but not least, I'm a Science Ambassador!
Why I love my program
I chose this program because I wanted to apply to optometry at UWaterloo in my 3rd year! I like the courses that I was required to take, I like the flexibility of the program, and I like that it fulfilled most of my requirements for professional school. We also have to take many labs which helps prepare you for the workplace and gain practical skills. I enjoy the wide range of courses we have to take which allows you to explore your interests.
Why University of Waterloo?
I chose the University of Waterloo because I grew up in the area and went on a Science Tour that showed me the new facilities, resources, and what Science has to offer in academics and outside of academics. I'm so happy I chose this school because I love the science community and how close-knit it is, even in a large campus. I especially enjoy the departmental clubs that promote wellness, hold events, and are a great place to meet people and study.
