Amy Tai: SNC Scholar Fall 2023
My name is Amy Tai and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Applied Science in Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo. My research focuses on cancer diagnosis and treatment using medical imaging and patient metadata. I believe financial literacy is essential to gaining financial freedom and that there are numerous ways to stretch one’s dollar when spending, but that these methods are not always apparent. After my graduate education, I plan on working in the healthcare field to safely and securely leverage new technologies to better improve patient experiences.
Chinecherem Anayo-Enechukwu: SNC Scholar Fall 2023
I am Chinecherem Chiamaka Anayo-Enechukwu, hailing from the vibrant state of Enugu in Nigeria. My academic journey led me to attain my LL.B degree from Enugu State University, followed by my successful completion of the Nigerian Law School, where I earned my Barrister at Law (BL) qualification… Recognizing the importance of financial literacy, which entails the art of strategic budgeting and making prudent financial decisions, I am determined to enhance my understanding in this area… My unwavering commitment to education has been the driving force behind my academic endeavors. Ultimately, my goal is to become a dedicated Lecturer and, God willing, a Professor of Law. Education has been a cornerstone of my life, motivating me to continually strive for excellence.
