Hi! I’m Michelle Lam and I’m from Mississauga, Ontario. I just moved from Hong Kong to here in January and so far I love it! In my free time, I like doing any kinds of sports, cooking and FaceTime with my family. I would love to pursue a career in healthcare field such as physiotherapist or doctors. I am extremely glad to have this opportunity to do research for our organization and at the same time doing what I love. Personally, I am very optimistic and active. I am ecstatic to spread positive mindsets to cope with the unprecedented times. I am excited to be part of this wonderful organization to make an impact and work alongside a passionate team of individuals. Race To A Cure will achieve great things!

Maria Giroux

Hi y’all! I am Maria Giroux, I live in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, currently studying physics and women and gender studies at Acadia University. Throughout the course of the pandemic, I have witnessed a lot of fake news spread around social media, along with just a general air of negativity. That is why I decided to join R2AC as a columnist-my  goal is to provide people with positive news updates within the science field as to what is going on in the world, COVID-19 related, using my love for writing along with my passion for science and tech. Stay safe and wear a mask!
