Tips and Advice from Yasmin Derayat
Which SCI Team event are you looking forward to the most and why?
I'm really excited for meet you major this year. It's amazing to see first year students exploring the different programs in the faculty. I also think it's rewarding that as SCIteam we get to interact with the students and also share our personal experiences with them!
What do you passionately love to do during your spare time?
I love to sing and I highly recommend joining the UBC choir to anyone who also likes singing :)
If you could only give one piece of advice to any undergraduate student, what would it be?
Try to be involved on campus! Check out some of the peer programs at UBC (SCI team is one of them) and maybe apply to be part of one of them. There many opportunities for personal development and you'll get to meet some really cool people.
