I am a second year Trent Student aiming to get my Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Biology and Chemistry. I am, of course, also the secretary of TISA for 2017-2018. I am originally from South Africa, but have also lived in the Pearl of Africa, Uganda, for four years before coming to Canada.
I decided to be a part of this year’s exec team as I live to learn about different cultures. Being a TISA exec will allow me to experience more as well as be a part of many culturally diverse groups. Ever since I can remember I have taken full advantage of any opportunity that allows me to explore different aspects of cultures around the world. To mention a few, I have been on elephant back safaris in South Africa, Skiing in Switzerland, and walked around the villages of Uganda.
All these experiences add up to create my bigger picture of how diverse different cultures are. I cannot wait to interact with everyone this year and attend all the incredible events that we, TISA, and the other regional groups have planned.
