What's your favourite memory of SFU Surrey? My favourite memories had to be the study sessions I had with my friends with ice cream and snacks from the mall.
What's unique about your program/about SFU Surrey? The classes sizes were very small so the professors got to know you by name and since my program was a cohort, I had all the same people in my classes which allowed for a great social and learning network.
Any special accomplishments? I was the Science One Representative for the SFU Surrey Campus Committee which allowed me to represent my cohort which was quite rewarding. I was also a Student Ambassador which offered me great volunteer opportunities in both the SFU and Surrey communities. I'm a returning Orientation Leader at SFU Surrey which has been been an amazing opportunity for me to help new SFU students. A personal accomplishment for me is being able to volunteer and service the SFU and larger community as well as graduate with my undergraduate degree next year at the age of 18 which was a goal of mine since I started SFU.
What's next for you? I'll be graduating next year with my undergraduate degree and I will return to SFU as a graduate student and finish my Master's. After that, I plan to go to medical school.
