Hello friends! My name is Laura, and I am in my fifth year of computer engineering at the University of Manitoba. I’ve been involved with my Eng Soc since I was an intern in my first year, all the way up to being the president this past year. My proudest accomplishment within my career in student government has been creating the first student-led mental health initiatives within our faculty, during my time as VP Academic. A fun fact about me is that in the last two years I’ve done multiple road trips across North America!
