How I get involved: In addition to being a science ambassador, I am also a part of the UW Supporting SickKids Club, Pre-Med Club, Science Society, and WiSTEM. Moreover, I volunteer with AccessAbility Services as a notetaker while devoting time to my involvement with Waterloo Science Outreach. I have also had the pleasure of being a Science Orientation Leader this past year, and am currently working as a research assistant with a faculty member from the University of Waterloo's School of Pharmacy.

Why I love my program

I love my program because it lets me complete the prerequisites of various professional school programs while giving me the flexibility to take other courses that I may be interested in. The electives I took in my first year were what led to my decision to pursue a minor in Psychology! Also, many of the core courses for Biomedical Sciences revolve around the topic of human and animal biology, which is the area of this discipline that I am most interested in!

Why University of Waterloo?

I chose the University of Waterloo because of the school’s renowned faculty members, quality of education, and tight-knit community. The students and professors here are all very supportive and helpful, which is one of the many ways that make Waterloo Warriors stand out!
