Member Highlights are where we showcase the wonderful talents, goals, and interests that our members possess.
What year and discipline are you in?
I am in my 2nd year of Computer Software Co-op.
Why did you go into your program?
While I liked the right subjects, I never considered engineering until grade 12. However, once I knew more about it, I felt it was a perfect fit for my interests and desire to solve problems.
What do you want to do as a career?
I want to try a few different options to see what interests me the most. First, working for or founding a start-up appeals to me. I am also interested in academia/research, particularly nanotech and mechatronics. Finally, I plan to take Amii’s Machine Learning Algorithms in the Real World course to get a better sense of a career in AI.
Overall, I am most fascinated by the overlap between technology and medicine.
What are you looking forward to most for when COVID is over?
I look forward to travelling again, especially by doing an international co-op or exchange trip in Germany. I also want to physically meet all the incredible people I met virtually this year.
What is a fun fact/skill about yourself?
I have been playing piano for over 13 years. Although I stopped taking lessons two years ago, I got back into it during the pandemic, and I was able to learn and perform Beethoven’s “Tempest” 3rd Mov. for the Heart of the City Music Program’s Benefit Concert. While not to the extent I want, I am glad that I can continue pursuing other interests while studying engineering.
