Shakeel Subdar

Where did you grow up and what’s your background?
I was born and raised in Markham, Ontario. My parents are initially from a tiny island off the coast of South Africa: Mauritius.

What is your program of study?
Double major in both Human Biology and Psychology.

Why science? If not science, then what?
I firmly believe that without science, the world along with humanity itself would be doomed. Advancements in the etiology and pathology of various diseases and disorders are what, in my opinion, sustain the human race. That being said, I cannot think of anything more rewarding than one day being able to contribute in our advancement and understanding of two very damaging disorders: Epilepsy and Alzheimer’s. If it weren’t for the sciences, I would have to go with teaching.

The best restaurant in Scarborough is...?
It’s rude to narrow it down to only one…

Your favourite place in Toronto is…?

Your favourite place on the inter tubes?
Youtube or ESPN.

Best song of all time?
No single answer, it changes weekly.
