About Me: 

What’s your favourite course at U of T Scarborough and why?

My favorite course at UTSC till now is MDSA01 which is the introduction to Media Studies, I loved this course because it has covered a lot of  interesting content. For instance, cultural analysis, organizational analysis and erotic analysis in the Media. It has been just fascinating to learn many concepts that are used in the Media and the ways things are arranged within Media.

Who’s your favourite professor at U of T Scarborough and why?

My favorite professor at UTSC is Frank Wania who taught me CHMA11 first part, the reason Professor Wania is my favorite professor because it has been the only time that a professor does not use lecture pdf slides but rather uses hand writing on the projector slide to let us interact with the material and content of the course using writing as a method.

What’s your favourite spot on campus and why?

My favorite spot at UTSC is the memorial garden outside of the AA building's rear entrance doors. I like this spot because it gives me a feeling of calmness and it is just so beautiful to see it everyday while I am on campus.

Why did you decide to come to U of T Scarborough?

I decided to come to UTSC because  when I was in the 2016 March Showcase Openhouse, I instantly felt that UTSC is the right school for me becuase of its nature as I like to study without any noise and I love the close-knit community here at UTSC and in Scarborough and because it is close to where I reside therefore I do not have to commute for so long. :D

Why did you decide to become an SRA?

I decided to become a Student Recruitment Assistant because my first physical contact with the university was the UTSC admissions office where I received help for my admissions application and it was such an amazing experience that I want to contribute and show prospective students why UTSC can be their right decision like it was mine.

Favourite movie/TV show?

My favorite movie is The Promise that highlights the Armenian people's history in the middle eastern region during the first world war under the Ottoman Empire rule and the Armenian Genocide that occurred during that time.

Favourite food?

My favorite food is anything my mother cooks. Mainly the middle eastern cuisine.

If you could give one piece of advice to your first-year self what would it be?

My advice for my 1st year would be, “Be more positive. Don't give up. You can do this, and I believe in you.”
