Epic-demic Proportions: A day in the life of a student
Hannah Sharpe is a 4th year life sciences student at Western University. Almost 6 months ago, Hannah's life was shaken up as most students were when their schooling, internships and jobs were disrupted and things came to a standstill with COVID 19. But Hannah refused to sit by idly. While still attending school and working at a lab, Hannah took on a lifescience role at our digital health company to help address the urgent need of medical translations. In this podcast, we speak to Hannah about her life as a student and what she sees as the opportunities in her future now. Hannah also shares ways in which we can apply critical thinking to everything we hear and see. This is Epic-demic proportions: A day in the life of a student.
