Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I decided to pursue a graduate degree in psychology because I have always been fascinated by the field. I was very keen to contribute to psychological research, particularly developmental psychology. I find research very exciting! I love exploring new approaches to better examine different research questions. I also love learning from experts in the field and sharing my own ideas.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
I decided to study at UBC because I was very interested in Dr. Susan Birch's research. I was also particularly interested in pursuing graduate school at UBC because it has one of the best psychology departments in Canada. Also, the developmental area at UBC is very strong and collaborative. I truly feel fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from the developmental faculty at UBC.
