VP Internal 2016-17
Year: 4
Faculty + Specialization: Arts— Psychology


If I could be any (real or not!) creature, I would be a/an…

…dog. I love all animals but dogs are my #1.

On another note, I finally did get a dog last summer and I think he actually has quite a resemblance to Dobby from Harry Potter after he gets groomed.

The person who inspires/taught me the most is…

…my parents

If money wasn’t a concern, I would pack my bags ASAP and vacation away to…

London! Or the motherland (S.Korea)

The most valuable lesson/advice I’ve learned is…

to be thankful for what you have and be forgiving.

I joined the UBC Pre-Education Club because…

I wanted to meet people going into education.


Tune in next week to meet our VP External!

If I could be any (real or not!) creature, I would be a/an…

…bird, hands down. Land, air, AND water? This owl and I are of one soul:

The person who inspires/taught me the most is…

…my younger sister. Our personalities are a little different, but having to be an older sibling makes me reflect back on myself and keep growing into a better person.

 

If money wasn’t a concern, I would pack my bags ASAP and vacation away to…

…southern Europe

 

The most valuable lesson/advice I’ve learned is…

…”10-10-10”: is it going to matter 10 minutes from now? 10 months? 10 years? A grade 8 teacher gave our class this tip for managing stress and the curveballs that life throws at us, and it’s been so helpful for putting things in perspective for me.

 

I joined the UBC Pre-Education Club because…

…I wanted to connect with others who were interested in education!


 

Tune in next week to meet our VP Internal!

Our first exec team social!

The newly elected UBC Pre-Edcuation Club executive team has old faces and new ones, so we recently had our first social to get to know each other a little better.

First, we opted out of the awkward trust fall exercise (surely there are better ways to test our trust!)…instead, we wanted to know how well we worked together as a team. Cue our venture into the much more fun and interesting Escape Room concept.

…We passed! No spoilers, but the series of puzzling rooms challenged us at times and forced us to stop and think. But ultimately, we made it out with almost a third of the time to spare! We came out of the room with a better bond, improved communication, and increased knowledge of each other’s strengths.

After that brain work, we rounded up our social with some fuel at Kyo and [oddly entertaining] liquid nitrogen ice cream.

One team-bonding day down, and more to come!

Want to meet our execs? Not everyone made it to the social, but we’ll be rolling out new exec team profiles every week, so stay tuned to learn more about us!


*PS— our exec socials are always completely paid for out of our own pockets, so don’t worry: 100% of your membership fee goes towards general club events for all members!
