NBR Natashia Bose-Roberts is the type of student that tends to fly under the radar despite her strong academic and extracurricular showings. Growing up between Kelowna, BC and (Grenville-sur-la-rouge), QC she has been volunteering her time, energy and skills for as long as she can remember. An avid traveller, she took a year off before starting her undergraduate at UBC in Microbiology to backpack through Europe and work in Switzerland. After completing her BSc she decided to take another year off, this time travelling and volunteering with a local AIDS organisation in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. A recently published author, she sat down with me to talk to me about her four years at McGill. Read the full interview.
