So I have a background in life science at the University of Toronto doing genetics on cells and systems biology. I always thought that my life would lead towards academia. That was not what I found to be interesting. At the end, I knew that research wasn't for me, and you might be wondering this as well. I thought of mm I as the next step of my life where I could balance the science and business on have them fused together as this notion off where science meets business. This was very interesting in the sense that way could actually per still pursue industry and have other roles that do not involve laboratory experience. I felt that laboratory experience was very limited in the sense that they are only focused on publications. I wanted to work for a company that directly is involved in helping people.
