My name is Aram Mohammadi, and I’m currently completing an Honours Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I’m in my fourth and final year at Laurier and I hope to move on to a career in the medical field or research within the sciences.
During grade 12, looking at what programs and schools to apply to was a very overwhelming process! A lot of my teachers wanted me to apply to programs in classes they taught and my parents really wanted me to pick a school near home. All of these different influences really didn’t help when trying to narrow down choices so I looked to my other family and friends for some advice. My close cousin told me about her experiences at Laurier and how it shaped her life so I decided I would give the local university a shot. I came on a tour and the ambassador leading the tour told me all about her experiences and, ever since then, I haven’t looked back!
During my first year I was a little shy so I didn’t really volunteer much. I then met someone who I now consider the spark that got me to start volunteering. In my second year, I joined the Emergency Response Team, where I helped students around campus performing first aid. From there I applied to become an executive and that led me to volunteer in other clubs like WarmWorkers Laurier. At Laurier I like to tell people that there’s a club for everything and, if there isn’t, you can start one yourself!
Throughout my years I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people and have everlasting experiences that I could have never achieved if I hadn’t come to Laurier. I participated in Orientation Week for the first time as a volunteer during my third year and this is when I realized I really loved my school and wanted first-years to feel the same love.
I can’t wait to meet you in the fall, future Golden Hawks!
