WHY DID YOU JOIN GRS?
The cool specializations! The diverse courses I’m taking are also interesting!
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE COURSE YOU’VE TAKEN AT UBC?
GEOS 307, because I enjoyed learning about biogeography! We did a nature diary and learned about different species and their geographic range
IF YOU COULD DO ANYTHING (WITH UNLIMITED FUNDS) WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
I would solve poverty? Haha or travel the world with those important to me.
HAVE YOU GONE ON AN INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE?
I did a Regional Directed Study in Palawan, Philippines! I spent 2 months last summer working with an NGO called ABConservation, which is dedicated to conversing the Bearcat or Binturong (an arboreal mammal endemic to Southeast Asia). It was sometimes difficult but so fun doing fieldwork in the forest and also getting involved in the local community efforts for conservation!
DO YOU HAVE ANY HIDDEN TALENTS?
I’m a professional hugger?
