Advice to First Years: Congratulations on choosing UTSC for your undergraduate studies. You are going to have an awesome time! My advice would be to study smart and get involved in the school community. There are many wonderful opportunities waiting for you, including opportunities in BioSA such as First year representative, BioSauce and more! Last but not least, make lots of friends!

What is the longest you have gone without sleep?

Roughly around 2 days – like 48 hrs ish, it wasn’t fun, so I highly don’t recommend it to anyone lol 😛

If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do?

This is a hard question, but I’m pretty sure the first thing I would do is sleep. Then I will travel the world, try some cool stuff like scuba diving and try all sorts of cuisines around the world. I would also like to help build schools, wells and teach in developing nations.
