The winner of 24 Hours of Waterloo has been announced!

Giovanna Ngai has been crowned the winner of this year's 24 Hours of Waterloo contest, earning the grand prize of a $500 shopping spree to Retail Services. From October 6 to 9, 16 finalists competed to earn the most likes on their photo, on the UWaterloo Life Facebook page. Giovanna's photo garnered an outstanding 831 likes.

Giovanna is currently running her own start-up as a part of the Enterprise Co-op program as part of her second co-op term. She is studying Arts and Business, working towards a double major in Fine Arts and Psychology. Giovanna is also in a don position on campus this year.

As a don, Giovanna’s door is a very important hub for information that her students may need to know. Every floor in her residence has a different theme, and Giovanna’s floor theme is Monsters Inc. and Monsters University. Her door features snapshots from the movie Monsters University that highlight different activities she might be doing or places where she can be found. A moveable Sully magnet is then adjusted by Giovanna on her door, pointing students to where she is and what she’s doing. Other items on her door include an Arts bandana with Porcellino on it, a bunch of pins from services around campus and a whiteboard for additional announcements and messages for her students.

Giovanna enjoys taking part in 24 Hours of Waterloo each year. She finds it extremely interesting and a lot of fun to see what other University of Waterloo students were doing in their daily lives. Giovanna is involved at the university by being a part of the Federations of Students (Feds) Students' Council, Orientation Week, and other student life activities. Giovanna also took over the UWaterlooLife Instagram account for 24 Hours of Waterloo, participating in the ultimate Instagram takeover -- 24 students in 24 hours.

Giovanna expresses her love for UWaterloo and is proud to call herself a Waterloo student.

I love how diverse the culture is and the many different individuals I have gotten to meet through the infinite amount of activities happening every day on and off campus. There is nothing quite like the UWaterloo community and the individuals which it consists of.

This term, while in a don position, she was excited to share some of the amazing (and quirky) things that happen in residence.
