Sarah - Biochemistry

Science Ambassador

Sarah goofyYear: 3

Stream of study: Co-op

Career goal: My career goal is to become a pathologist, although I would also like to research viruses/disease in humans and other living creatures.

Favourite food: Fish tacos!

How I get involved: This is my second year as a Science Ambassador. I also get involved with intramurals, such as indoor soccer and I joined the improv club in my 2A term.

Why I love my program

The aspect I enjoy most about Biochemistry is the laboratory work. I like hands on learning, and I have found that the labs associated with the courses I have taken throughout my degree thus far have been awesome. My favourite has been the microbiology lab! Also, I have always loved chemistry, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my organic chemistry classes and apply these reactions at a cellular level.

Why University of Waterloo?

I chose the University of Waterloo because I wanted to take advantage of the co-op program. It has given me the opportunity to experience jobs that I am curious about and will provide me with opportunities to get interested in other areas of the field.
