Kristina - Psychology

Science Ambassador

Kristina goofy

Year: 3

Stream of study: Co-op

Minor: Biology

Career goal: I am still undecided about whether or not I want to pursue a job in therapy or Industrial/Organizational Psychology. My ideal career would be person-centric, where I would have the opportunity to work with teams and use my knowledge of human behaviour to help problem-solve.

Favourite food: Sushi!

How I get involved: Shoetag fitness classes, Muay Thai, volunteering at the food bank, volunteering as a note taker, residence tours of MKV, UWP and CMH. I worked for the SUO for a bit too!

Why I love my program

Psychology has always been a huge passion of mine, but I've also always been very scientifically-minded. Life Science Psychology gives me the opportunity to learn the human biology behind psychological processes. This program allows me to study everything I am interested in with a lot of flexibility.

Why University of Waterloo?

When I first visited Waterloo I felt right at home. Everyone was so friendly, I could just see the next 5 years of my life and knew I needed to come here! It also helped that there is a co-op program here, because I wasn't set on any one career path entering university, and wanted the opportunity to explore my options.
