About Me: 

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

Well, this is a hard question because so far, I like all my courses at UTSC but my favorite probably will be my very first women and gender studies course which is WSTA03H3 Introduction to Theories of Feminism that made me fall in love with feminism, gender equality and opened my eyes to a history of women fighting for their rights that I knew nothing about and pushed me further to peruse more in this program

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

Jason Brown. first, you will think he is a hard professor but his creativity and enthusiasm will make you change your mind, he makes a connection between the theoretical course materials and actual application on the information that you learn, he pushes the students to use critical thinking in his tests. I personally thought it will be very hard but I was so happy with the results plus he is a very approachable professor.

What’s your favourite spot on campus and why?

I just love the campus, it's my second home basically I stay on campus more than I do at home, but my favourite spot on campus will be the valley, a great way to escape from the studying and the stress by taking a walk in the nature and relax, you can do some sport there as well, tennis baseball and so much more.

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

The UTSC environment, multicultural community, and the positive feelings that I got while I was walking in the UTSC hallways for the first time made me choose UTSC as my campus for my undergraduate studies because it felt just like home.

Why did you decide to become an SRA?

I really want to help incoming students in deciding whether UTSC is the right campus for them. Choosing what university to go to is overwhelming for many students, and I think SRAs can be of critical help.

Favourite movie/TV show?

The promise

Favourite food?

Poutine and Shawarma

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

Don’t be shy! put yourself out there and make as many as connections you can with your professors, have fun by attending events, workshops on the campus because these events are for you. its very important to make new friendships because in the end of the day you will learn so much form people’s experiences. This campus will be your space to spend your university life and memories that will last forever.
