Stream of study: Regular

Pronouns: She/Her

Career goal: Medicine

How I get involved: I have been involved in the Black Medical Leaders of Tomorrow (University club) for just over a year and a half, first as a Junior representative, then creative director and now Vice-President. I also love getting involved on campus; I've been an Orientation Leader, You@Waterloo day volunteer, Spring Welcome week volunteer and Chem Lab days volunteer. During the summer, I had the opportunity to complete an NSERC in a microbiology lab on campus, and I'm still involved part-time.

Why I love my program

I have always enjoyed Biology courses and learning about the different mechanisms in the human body. This program allows me to pursue my passions in a flexible program while fulfilling most of my medical school requirements. My favourite courses thus far have been BIOL 273+373 (physiology) and BIOL 239 (genetics)!

Why University of Waterloo?

The University of Waterloo offers many research opportunities and an amazing community! Everybody is super open, and it is very easy to fit in. Furthermore, the EDGE program offers a chance to gain valuable work experience even if your program doesn't offer co-op.
