Hi everyone! My name is Izabela and I’m in my 4th year as an Arts student majoring in PPE (Philosophy, Political Science, Economics). I’m super excited to welcome you to the UBCO community and campus. Since we don’t know each other yet, I’d like to tell you a little bit more about myself. I’ve lived in the Kelowna area for over 12 years after immigrating from Belarus, so I know all the best restaurants, cafes, and study spots. My recent favorites are Central Kitchen + Bar (amazing staff and food!) and Third Space Café (a non-profit that supports free counselling for youth). On a more academic note, I’ve spent lots of time on campus so I can be a great tour guide, address any questions you have about campus spaces, and give you tips on juggling coursework and a social life. I’m really looking forward to meeting you!
Hi everyone! My name is Unjalee Parmar and I am a third-year Science student majoring in Biology. I am originally from Calgary, Alberta and I love spending time outdoors hiking, skiing, and rock climbing. I’m also really into photography and travelling. This year, I am going to be involved with the executive team of the Microbiology Course Union and student clubs, such as jack.org, SISU and VOCO. My favourite place to grab a coffee on campus is Green Bean in the UNC building. I’m looking forward to meeting new people this school year! If you see me on campus, feel free to say hi!
Hello, my name is Trishna and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a third-year student majoring in Human Kinetics. I currently live in Calgary, Alberta. In my free time I like to read or watch some TV. As the weather finally gets warmer in Calgary, I like to go for walks and hikes.
