The University of British Columbia Vancouver campus is what I have called my academic home for the entirety of my Bachelors degree. I expected it to be a place I could learn to do great science and meet a diverse group of people from all over the world. However, it has turned out to be much more: my residence has been a place I can call home, the people I have studied with have become colleagues and my I have made more friends here than anywhere else in this decade. My positions as an employee of the university in different capacities over the years have grown me into a better professional. This is a place I been inspired to give back to in many capacities!
