My experience at SFU Beedie
The whole SFU Beedie program has been extremely flexible and as an athlete, it helped me prioritize what’s important in school and life. I already see how that will benefit me in the future.
My Journey

I chose to study at SFU Beedie because of its reknowned co-op program, supportive faculty, and leading approach to education. In the beginning, I was focused on improving in my sport to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro where I was part of Team Canada's field hockey team. As I went further into my degree, I applied that same focus on school which helped me improve my grades and the rest of my life.

Between sport and school, I also co-founded a furniture sourcing company called Liv and Company with fellow SFU Beedie students, Bruce Ngo and Robin Liu. Since starting the copmany, we've furnished several commercial projects and I look forward to growing this company even more in the future.

Where I am today
