Hi! My name is Justine and I’m a third-year student pursuing a Psychology Research Specialist and a major in Neuroscience. I became involved in Brain Waves during my first year at U of T because I love to teach and work with kids, and was curious about psychology and neuroscience! Volunteering with Brain Waves is such a rewarding and energizing experience, and I am so excited to be able to continue to share my passion for neuroscience with elementary school students this coming year!
I am a 4th-year undergraduate studying neuroscience as well as biodiversity and conservation biology. I joined Brain Waves because I believe that we as a society should allocate more resources towards educating youth in both health and science. Brain Waves not only empowers young students to pursue futures in science but also encourages students to practice brain safety; given my love of teaching and neuroscience, I find these results to be incredibly important. All in all, I love helping students understand why their brain is so cool, important, and worth protecting.
My name is Milena and I am a third year student majoring in immunology and physiology. I joined Brain Waves because I wanted to help in educating elementary school students on how to protect their brains. I have a strong passion for science communication and the promotion of science literacy, which has been the catalyst for my involvement in various volunteer and extracurricular activities. In my free time I enjoy drawing, painting, and playing the ukulele!
My name is Mouzhan Varshoueitabrizi, I am a third year Majoring in Health & Disease with a double minor in immunology and history, specifically, Medieval Times. You know the fun parts (◠‿・)—☆ Personally, I love spending my free time reading, knitting, volunteering anywhere that involves childern and teaching, and chilling with my family while eating anything delicious I can get my hands on. I love working with children and seeing them happy and one way to achieve that goal is to keep them safe. That is why I joined Brainwaves Association as a volunteer and now I am responsible for training all volunteers to help you help us with our mission of teaching children about dangers of concussion and how important it is for them to protect themselves. I look forward to meeting you all.
