I remember getting a really good mark in one of my math courses, which pushed me towards studying it.

I also realized I was good at math, and I didn’t really want to study anything else.

My friends were surprised when I chose to study math at university,

but I really like how there’s always a right or wrong answer.

I didn’t realize how math could be used in so many different areas,

which is what I hoped when I chose Waterloo.

My professor in first year told me how he used math to calculate the growth rate of cancer cells.

Through personal connections,

I was able to get my first co-op job at CitiGroup in Canary Wharf, London, England.

I worked on the e-commerce desk on the trading floor and I really like the social aspect of the job

it helped me determine the type of environment I want to work in.

I plan to use the rest of my co-op work terms to explore potential careers.

I know I like to work with people and possibly in an area relating to statistics.

Waterloo is a great place to be for math.

I applied to university from the UK and it was a tough decision to come to Canada,

but I wanted a strong math program and co-op as well, so Waterloo was the perfect fit!
