Honours, Chemistry and Multidisciplinary Studies
Three keys to a good education
- Surrounding yourself with people you admire and who bring out the best in you
- Exploring opportunities that come your way, even if they seem out of reach
- Good quality sleep and self care
Two lessons you learned at Concordia
- Kindness, determination, and creativity will take you far
- Asking for help is part of growing
What does it mean for you to celebrate this milestone moment in person?
For the 2020 and 2021 grads, we’re not just celebrating our time at Concordia; it’s also about what we’ve accomplished since classes ended for us. It’s a good time to reflect on how far we’ve come in all aspects of our lives and to set goals for ourselves.
Do you have a memory to share from your Concordia experience?
I met some really great friends and shared so many laughs. We had an epic prank war in our Science College office space. One summer, a couple of fellow research lab interns and I made a mock company, complete with a logo and great business model as an imaginary side hustle for the summer. One time, my lab partner accidentally spilled our beautiful final product that we had labored over for the entire lab session, and he just scooped it back up citing the "five second rule".
What's next for you?
I'm working on my PhD in Organofluorine chemistry. I'll see where life takes me after this. I think that the most enjoyable aspects of life happen when you least expect them.
