Stream of study: Co-op
Career goal: I would like to use the skills I have learned in my microbiology courses to do research involving yeast and fermentation and perhaps one day I'll start my own company.
Favourite food: Bacon and eggs with a large cup of coffee
How I get involved: Other than being an ambassador, I have been involved with Orientation for three years. During my years being involved with Orientation, I have been a frontline leader, a Fun Police and most recently a Federation Orientation Committee member which required me to plan, develop and run Science Orientation 2017. Other volunteer programs I have been involved with were Science Student Help Team where I was a mentor for science students, and for Let's Talk Science which involves engaging grade school kids in science related activities.
Why I love my program
Why University of Waterloo?
For me the science faculty was a perfect fit here at the University of Waterloo. I wanted to study a specific science field without having to be forced to take courses I wasn't interested in. Science at the University of Waterloo allowed me to focus studying on what I wanted to study.
I'm also from a small town called Erin. When choosing universities, I wanted to experience living in a larger city than what I was use to while also not being too far from home. Waterloo was that perfect balance. I was able to experience living in an entirely new environment while still being able to see my family.
