Hi! I'm Simran and I'm a first-generation student. In September I will be entering my fifth and final year in KINE. In my first year I found it really hard to transition from high school to university. It was really difficult to make meaningful connections with my peers and I felt really lost in terms of what I wanted to do with my career. So this year, I decided to become a peer mentor to provide some guidance resources, study tips and tricks to all you first years and help you ace those exams. Other than studying, I really enjoy watching Netflix shows so if you have any suggestions please let me know and I'm looking forward to connecting with you all!
