Aleena's Bio:

My name is Aleena Ahmad and I am a student at the University of Toronto Mississauga currently in my second year of undergraduate studies. I am pursuing an Honour’s Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Biology for Health Sciences, a minor in Chemistry, and a minor in Mathematical Sciences. Since the start of my university journey, I have had an incredible time at UTM. The staff and students at UTM are a welcoming, supportive community and the university has provided myself and other students with the resources they need to succeed. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be a student at UTM and hope to continue to learn and grow as I continue my undergraduate studies. After graduating from university, I hope to pursue a career in the healthcare field and apply the knowledge I have gained from my time at UTM to a future career in medicine.

Aleena's remarkable accomplishment is a testament to her hard work, commitment, and passion for the subject.
