Rita H.

Why did you choose York Science?

"One of the reasons I chose York science is because of the amazing professors that teach at the faculty of science at York. There is so
much diversity and so much research experience that I was eager to be a part of."

What is something about York or the Faculty of Science that made you feel welcome?

"York is known for being so multicultural and one of my positive experiences at York Science is getting to know so many amazing
students, professors and staff that made me feel like I am home."

What was the hardest part of your transition into Canada or York and what helped to make your transition easier?

"As we all know, high school is usually a smaller community than university and this fact was definitely difficult for me at the start and made the transition to York a bit hard. The way around such difficulty was to make friends in my classes and getting involved in all the clubs I like where I found people who have the same interests as me."
