Meet the Academic Peers

Hi, I’m Lucia Lai, one of your RC Academic Peers! I’m excited to be going into my third year specializing in Finance and Economics with a focus in Data Science. Joining the RC Academic Peers team has been a fantastic opportunity for me to give back and support fellow students in their academic journeys, whether through projects or student appointments.

When I’m not studying, you can find me exploring new places in the city, enjoying a good book, or helping people in my community. As someone born and raised in Toronto, I can also offer you insights into the best spots around the city! Having experienced the challenges of transitioning from high school to university myself, I understand how overwhelming it can be and that not everything will go exactly the way you planned it to. My advice is to take advantage of the resources available and to reach out for help early on. I’m here to share my experiences and assist you in navigating your university life, so don’t hesitate to get in touch! I’m looking forward to connecting with you soon!
