As Alumni Ambassador:
I will be using the Canada alumni LinkedIn group and Canada alumni facebook group, so please join. I will arrange networking drinks so that we can all meet up and get to know each other.

About me:
I will always remember Cass for the community feel it gave me by organizing events that ranged from guest lecturers to the many social events such as the masquerade ball in Café de Paris. In my spare time I like to get away from it all, especially on hiking trips away from the city's hustle and bustle, or binge-watching TV series like Game of Thrones. I've just moved to Canada so I need to spend some time learning about the local sports!
