What is your favourite quote?

“Do not disturb yourself by picturing your life as a whole; do not assemble in your mind the many and varied troubles which have come to you in the past and will come again in the future, but ask yourself with regard to every present difficulty: ‘What is there in this that is unbearable and beyond endurance.'”

– Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

Vanessa Cheng

Secretary

What is your goal?

My goal is to explore as many opportunities that UBC Pharmacy has to offer! I didn’t have the ability to join student-led organizations such as PhUS when I was an undergrad, so I set out to make the most out of these last 4 years of school (ever!). This experience has been super humbling. I’ve been able to connect with the student body more, and to implement new initiatives that can help future students as well!

What do you take everywhere with you?

I always carry my blue Mentos gum in Fresh Mint. Mentos has perfected the coating, and the flavour lasts me through long back-to-back lectures.
