An Interview with a St.Mike’s Student

Karen Maktabi, Associate Lifestyle Editor

What’s your name, what program and year are you currently in at UofT? 

Hi, I’m Danny, I’m currently in my 3rd year studying economics, here at UofT. 

What’s your favorite aspect of the program you’re in, what made you choose it? 

Honestly, the spectrum of topics in economics is vast, so there’s a lot to pick from. And I think I enjoy having that flexibility, in terms of what I choose to study in my field.

Looking back, what did you want to be when you grew up?  

As a kid, if I recall correctly I wanted to be doctor, so that I may help the less fortunate.

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to go? 

Oh probably Barbados! I’ve always wanted to visit the Caribbean.

What’s your favorite quote/your life motto? 

I think I like to go through life thinking “it’s never too late” it helps me stay driven and to always go after my hopes and dreams.  

What would you say is your go-to spot in the GTA? (you can specify restaurant, cafe, bar etc.)/ What’s your favorite season in Toronto?

I’d say my go-to spot would be Crumbl Cookies in Mississauga. They opened up recently, and they have the best variety of daily and freshly made cookies!
