Cheryl Zvaigzne - Social Rep (Wollongong) 2013/2014
Name: Cheryl Zvaigzne
Previous University: University of Calgary (BSc, MSc)
Hometown: Calgary, AB, Canada
I’m one of the Canadians who moved from far across the globe to study medicine, but feel I couldn’t have made a better choice. I studied Cell and Molecular Biology and then worked in research in Cardiovascular Imaging before moving to Australia. I really enjoy everything about this course – the location, structure, the people, and the content – it’s just really awesome stuff!
It’s important to keep up with other activities outside of uni; it’s a great way to find friends here whom you connect with and also serves as a healthy distraction. Keep doing what you love – for me it’s running, hiking and exploring, kayaking, and cooking.
As your Wollongong social rep, I’ll be working alongside Roly (in Shoalhaven) as your official party planner. Our aim is to create some fun and enhance your social experience, as UOW med students are all about working together and supporting each other. I hope that you all learn to love the Illawarra, UOW, the GSM, and your class as much as I have. Congrats on your acceptance, and I can’t wait to meet you all!
