I was originally born in England, and moved to Canada six years ago with my family. I live in Georgetown (near the GTA), but moved to London to come to Western to pursue a health science degree. I hope to one day be able to work in global health. I have a very global family, and we nearly have a Bristow family member on nearly every continent. I have an older sister that lives in England, an older brother that lives in South Africa (but is moving to Australia soon), an older brother that lives in China, and a younger sister who also lives in Canada. I completed an exchange to the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, for the winter semester 2017. Aside from my love of travelling, I am also an avid baker.
As you probably can tell from my name, I am originally from South Korea and moved to Canada in 2007. I lived in Moncton, New Brunswick, for five years before moving to London a few years ago. I went to high school here and decided to attend Western for the Medical Sciences program as it is my goal to study medicine in the near future. Since my home is in London, I still live with my parents. While I would really like to get a place of my own, living at home definitely has its perks! In order to escape my boring life, I listen, play and make music- even though I don't have much time to do so these days, music has always been a great stress reliever for me.
I was born and raised in China and came to Canada two years ago to pursue a computer science degree here at Western. Before coming here I had never lived anywhere outside of my hometown. It felt like an insane decision suddenly moving a whole ocean away from home. However, I have come to realize that I will never regret this decision. Moving here has opened my eyes to a completely new world. I got to experience the unique and diverse cultural perspectives Canada has to offer. I can't wait for more adventures in Canada!
