Even small steps create a path
First, I would like to acknowledge that Edmonton, Alberta, where I currently live and study, is on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional lands of diverse Indigenous peoples including Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, and Inuit.
About me: I have long been fascinated by the brain and passionate about mental health. I completed my BSc, Honours in Neuroscience & Mental Health with a minor in Biology from Carleton University in 2021. My academic journey has connected me with fantastic peers and opened my eyes to so many different paths in science. Currently, I am pursuing a Master of Public Health in Health Policy and Management from the University of Alberta. My path hasn't been the most linear, but one thing I have learned through my academic journey is to continue asking questions and staying curious, you never know where it may take you. I hope reading some of our thoughts spark your curiosity!
