My name is Alice Wang. I was born in Taiwan and immigrated to Canada when I was 14. I have been living in Toronto, Ontario for the last 12 years. Ever since I was little, I have been fascinated by general science. Inspired to be a scientist, I studied sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) in high school and later enrolled in the Human Biology: Genes, Genetics, and Biotechnology program at the University of Toronto. I received a Hon. B.Sc. degree from U of T in 2005, when I decided to polish my laboratory skills by applying for the Biotechnology Technologist program at Centennial College. I graduated with an advanced diploma from the Biotechnology Technologist program at Centennial College in 2008. I am motivated about my career in the biotechnology industry.
Besides the interest in science, I am also passionate about environmental issues. While global warming is becoming an important concern, more and more scientists devote their research to grapple with the problem. I keep myself updated on the latest developments. I am also interested in art, literature, movies, music, and technology. I spend my spare time immersing myself in these areas of interests.
This blog started as an ambitious plan to keep an record of all what I have learned. Writing is another passion of mine. And I hope that starting a blog would keep me motivated to keep on learning!
