Faculty/Program: 5th Year Honours Physics
Time in MTT: 5 years!

What is your favourite musical?
Hadestown!

Favourite Song Lyric:
“Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock ‘n’ roll.” -Rocky Horror Picture Show

Favourite part about being in MTT:
I love being part of a community of so many kind people from diverse backgrounds, and having the opportunity to work creatively with them.

What are you excited about your position?
Every element of MTT requires some amount of money to run smoothly. While I am not an expert in marketing, events, or running productions, I enjoy that my position allows me to be a part of all of these elements of the club. Being in charge of the money can definitely seem like a big responsibility at times, however I find having this responsibility to be rewarding.

If you are on the fence about joining MTT, whether that be coming to an event or trying out for the production, just go for it! As a self-identified introvert, I can understand the anxiety that can come with trying something new or with trying to build friendships in your first years of university. The community is really welcoming, and there are plenty of ways to get involved.
