Double major in Public Policy and International Development Studies

Why did you decide to come to U of T Scarborough?
I decided to come to U of T Scarborough because I wanted to do Co-op and I liked the tight-knit atmosphere on campus.

What’s the best part of your program?
I really like how both of my programs intersect and complement each other. My Public Policy program really allows me to further my understanding of the political aspect of development issues.

What campus activities are you involved in?
I am part of the Law Society of U of T Scarborough.

What’s your favorite thing to do in your spare time?  
I love watching comedy shows. My favourite comedians at the moment are John Mulaney, John Oliver and Trevor Noah.

If you could give one piece of advice to your first-year self, what would it be?
I would advise my first-year self to really take advantage of the academic resources on campus. For me, the Math and Stats Centre was a lifesaver when I was taking a statistics course!
