Wania Zafar 

Program: Health Sciences

Year: Second

About me: I am a second year student in the Faculty of Health Science, specializing in Human Health. Alongside my academic pursuits, I am a person with a deep passion for self-expression and language. Journaling, drawing, and writing are my creative outlets, allowing me to express my thoughts and emotions. English holds a special place in my heart because when I first came to Canada, I struggled a lot with the language. However, throughout the rest of my schooling, it became my highest mark and continues to be so. I also find great joy in editing work, as I appreciate the process of refining and perfecting written content.

Apart from my artistic endeavours, I have a love for order and cleanliness. I genuinely enjoy cooking, cleaning, and organizing, and I must admit, I can be a bit of a neat freak. In my spare time, I find fulfillment in engaging in activities that promote both physical and mental well-being. Playing badminton, going for walks, visiting museums, and hitting the gym are among my favourite pastimes.
