  1. What year are you in and what is your major? Fourth year, BAS with a specialization in Marketing.
  1. Why did you choose to join the NMSA? I wanted to give back to the York community before I graduated. NMSA was a perfect way, and I am very glad that I joined.
  1. Are you ready for this questionnaire? Not really, I’m hungry.

  1. If you were an animal, what would you be and why? A liger. “It’s pretty much my favourite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed… bred for its skills in magic.” – (Napoleon Dynamite reference)
