PhD Student in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
I am a current PhD student at SFU. I come from small town Newfoundland and in my free time I enjoy walking the beautiful trails of Port Coquitlam, lifting weights with my husband, and reading
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
I chose to come to SFU because of my supervisors research, Dr. Deborah Connolly and Dr. Heather Price. When I got my acceptance letter from SFU I knew it immediately - I HAD to go. It was the best fit for my research interests. Going from coast (NL) to coast (BC) was scary but I knew it would be the best choice for me.
