What is at the top of your bucket list?
Taking a trip to Italy to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa!

What is your favourite hobby?
I absolutely love doing puzzles. It’s a very calming activity and helps take my mind off other troubling things.

What is one piece of advice you would give to someone looking to get involved in Sauder?
Be resilient. Many people tend to be very harsh on themselves when they don’t first get the position that they applied to, and that’s understandable. However, you must constantly remind yourself that you go to university with thousands of other brilliant minds – and there are always other opportunities. Just put in the effort, keep trying, reach out to other Sauder students for help, and you’re guaranteed to get the desired result. :))
