Hi everyone! I'm a BA'18 Psychology & Speech Sciences major from the University of British Columbia. Currently I'm pursuing my HRM certificate from York University. I look forward to learning with you! Fun fact about me: For 11 years my beautiful turtles Tutu and Putu gave me so much joy! They still do - only I have recently found out that they are tortoises! Oops.

Nishka Mishra

Psychology, Ashoka University

I'm a psychology major with an additional interest in philosophy and creative writing. My interests include music (listening to and occasionally singing), watching Netflix shows and stand-up comedy, and spending time with my pet dog! I've been told that I'm the person to go if someone needs a last-minute editor for their 3000-word essay or if someone just wants to know how someone could be more terrified of roaches than snakes.
