VP International Students

As VP international Students, my role is to mainly focus on advocating for international students in the MD program, regarding financial burden, social connection, and career development. I take all the students’ situation and perspectives into consideration and make an overall representation for our international student community.

About Me

I am an international student from China. I am not a superfan of anything but a fan of everything, always open to explore. One of my million dreams was to become a professional tennis player, but I still haven’t learned to serve for years. If you love East Asian food, we should definitely try all the good restaurants in Toronto together. I promise I am a much more interesting guy than my tedious introduction, so why don’t we just have a chat?

About Me

I am international student from Nigeria. Since moving to Canada, I enjoy trying new experiences and meeting people. I spend a huge part of my downtime reading novels and watching my favourite YouTube channels. I love listening and dancing to Afrobeats music and in another life, I would have been a professional dancer.

I am a firm believer of channeling my pain to purpose and actively seek opportunities that further my interests in health equity and advocacy for marginalized populations.

Lastly, a fun fact or maybe not so fun for a lot of people is that, I don't like chocolate so I don't eat anything with chocolate in it.
