Name: Rajani Sellathurai
Program: Double major in Neuroscience and Psychology, Minor in Biology
Experience I hope to gain with BioSA:
As Secretary of BioSA, I hope to make a lot of new friends, find a sense of belonging at UTSC and put myself to the test. I hope that this position will show me that I can do anything with a little bit of confidence and a lot of hard work. I hope that by the end of this school year, my experience with BioSA will have really helped shaped me as a person.
Hobbies/Interests: Painting/sketching, creative writing, badminton, yoga and of course Temple Run!
Favourite TV Shows: Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, Revenge, How I Met Your Mother, One Tree Hill
Favourite Movie: It's definitely a tie between The Butterfly Effect and The Lake House
Favourite Quote: "One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful." – Sigmund Freud
Advice to First Years:
In your first year create a goal for yourself - just one goal. Make it the one thing you really want. Over the next 4 years slowly work toward it and watch what you become.
If you had all the money in the world, what would you do? I'd build and fund my own medical research centre in which I, along with my colleagues, would slowly but surely find a long-awaited cure to a major disease/disorder.
I'd be a coconut - difficult to crack but once you do, refreshing and well worth it.
If you were a fruit, what it be and why?
