Favourite Quote: “You don’t have to have all the answers. You just have to know people that do.”
Advice to First Years: When you are stuck on something and need help, seek help asap. Don’t expect things to get better without seeking help because while you may think things will get better overtime, chances are it actually won’t. Help yourself when you need it before it’s too late. There are people and resources at UofT that are there to help you, use them.
What is the longest you have gone without sleep? 52 Hours. Hackatons are that crazy.
If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do? I would turn into an investor (because I don’t believe in retiring), then build at least one orphanage somewhere around the world and have at least one educational and medical institution dedicated to that orphanage and for other orphans.
