Study tip: When studying with a friend, try explaining concepts to them! If you can explain them in your own words, it is an indication that you have a good understanding of that concept!
Favourite study spot: Coffee shops! If I can't go to coffee shops, I make myself a nice coffee and set up my desk with music to make myself feel like I am at a coffee shop!
Fun fact: I love getting into any creative hobby! So far, I've enjoyed watercolour, digital art, calligraphy, music production, various instruments and singing, writing, photography... Cannot wait to tackle more hobbies :)

Heba

Program of study: Psychological and Health Sciences Specialist and Biology Minor.
Study tip: Make up fun questions and test your knowledge of the content you are learning. That way you become aware of what information you know, and what you don't, so that you can go back and review it. 
Favourite study spot: An empty classroom! Use the UofT Synchronous Space Finder to find which classrooms are free to use at a certain time. 
Fun fact: I love taking up new hobbies, and I am currently interested in hip-hop dance and volleyball!
