I'm in my second year of University, going for a psychology degree. The PAL program is perfect for me because I am in the business of helping people. I am part of the PAL program by fluke, which proves my philosophy correct that nature has this way of bringing people together to accomplish wonderful things. I look forward to meeting you, whomever you are.

I am in my fourth year of honours degree in psychology. I am originally from Saskatoon, so I am interested in what most Saskatonians like (e.g. hockey, walking on the train bridge, complaining about the weather). I hope to one day accomplish enough that if I am again expected to write a bio for a webpage, that I'll have more things to say.

I have a passion for life, and getting the most experience out of it. If there is anything I'm good at, it would be grabbing hold of opportunities put forth before me. I enjoy film-making, playing instruments (accordion, piano, guitar, drums, erhu, pipa...), breakdancing, racquet sports, etc; and I don't just try them out, I push myself to excel at them, all while working towards an Anatomy/Physiology double major. I like to challenge myself, by constantly learning these new things/skills, and then eventually sharing them with the people around me. Being a BUDDY Volunteer through PAL puts me in the perfect position where I can not only share my experiences with others, but also learn from the many international students that we have walking through our doors! :) Have a look at my website if you are interested in seeing some of my "hobbies/work" (I do web design too! =P) http://homepage.usask.ca/~vay216/ .

Hey, My name is Mengjie. I prefer to be called Brownie. I am a sweet girl just like my name. I am a third year Accounting student. Since I am crazy about numbers, I join the Math and Stats tutor group; help to answer students' questions from Math 121 class. I like to identify the problems, look for solutions and give alternative methods for students. Besides, I like smiling and showing my friendliness when answer the questions. Never hesitate to drop by Math and Stats Center and ask questions.

Hi, all, my name is Hangjie (Jessie). I'm currently second year in commerce, but haven't picked any major yet, haha. It seems that I'm still looking for the direction of my life.

Nice to know all you guys.
