I like all genres of music. I generally listen to the Top 40s, but I also have some Old School Rap, Classic Rock, 90's music and more. Music is the universal language, and the different genres relate to the different emotions I have. On a rainy day, I prefer mellow music and on sunny days and mornings I prefer dance songs. Unfortunately I cannot sing nor play any instruments, but I can rap some Biggie Smalls.
Meeting New People
I love meeting new people because in order to grow as a person, I need to learn from other people's experiences. The people I have met and interacted with have shaped who I am today.
I am not a professional photographer, and I do not come close to being one. However, with the advancements in technology, I can easily take photos on my handy iPhone that I love and keep close to me at all times, and use Instagram or SnapChat to share my masterpieces with friends. It is very rare for a day to go by without sending a photo to at least one of my friends.
I developed an interest in snowboarding in my first year of university. I went on a ski and snowboarding trip to Big White with one of the clubs at school, tried snowboarding and absolutely loved it. I spent my first day falling numerous times, but that motivated me to keep doing it so that one day I can stop falling and actually enjoy riding on a board. I didn't snowboard for a year after that, but in Spring 2013, I was fortunate enough to travel around British Columbia for my co-op term. I had a chance to go to mountain resorts in Revelstoke and Kimberly, and other resorts such as Sun Peaks, Silverstar, Hudson Bay Mountain, and Red Mountain. Living in Vancouver, I am surrounded by Grouse Mountain, Cypress Mountain, Seymour Mountain, and Whistler. I will definitely keep it up.
In high school, I joined the golf team without having any prior experience in the sport. We spent the first day practicing our swing at the driving range, and from that point on, I decided to buy my own golf set and continue the sport in the Spring and Summer.
Hiking and the Outdoors
Living on top of Burnaby Mountain is great because there are so many trails that are a 5 minute walk away from my house. In the Spring semester, I enjoy taking study breaks by going on a hike. If I am feeling energetic, I sometimes take Cardiac Hill for the extra exercise.
I have travelled North America and have seen tourist attractions such as the Seattle Space Needle, Oregon Coast, Golden Gate Bridge, Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas Strip, Mount Rushmore, and West Edmonton Mall. Each city has something unique to offer and I am interested in seeing as many places as I can.
