Hope you’re all doing amazing today! Answering a few Instagram DMs and questions I’ve gotten below!
WHAT DID YOU LOVE THE MOST WITH YOUR JOB?
The 50% employee discount on concession and merch. JUST KIDDING. I love my coworkers, meeting new people, seeing the guys, watching the game, experiencing new things etc.
ARE YOU STILL DOING A MD AND PHD DEGREE?
That was the plan. I was originally planning to do a MD and PhD Degree, but decided I just want to do a PhD degree. I love research and I want to work with Brain Diseases/Neuropsychology. This was a personal decision that I know would be great balance for my professional career and family life. I’m not settling or giving up anything by not doing both, my heart has always been to work with Brain Diseases and Neuropsychology. I want a work and personal life balance and I don’t feel like I could do both if I pursued an MD degree as well. I’m not at all saying being a Scientist is easier or not as challenging as becoming a Physician, both are equally challenging in their own ways.
BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER GOTTEN?
Advice from my Mom – My Mom always told me to be independent and make a name for myself. My Mom works in the health field and also has a small business on the side. She makes her own money and has many clients who treat her like family.
Advice from my Dad – When I was younger, my Dad told me he does not care if I’m the smartest kid in my grade. He said all wanted is for me to be kind to everyone I meet and to be an “inspiration” to others.
HOW’S YOUR FANTASY GOING?
THOUGHTS ON TOMI LAHREN?
WHO DO YOU THINK WILL WIN THE WORLD SERIES THIS YEAR?
Honestly, I think the Red Sox will win.
THOUGHTS ON YEEZYS?
I’m not a fan of them, but that’s just me.
NUTELLA OR PEANUT BUTTER?
NUTELLA, NOT EVEN A QUESTION.
WHICH SPORTS TEAMS DO YOU THINK WILL WIN THIS UPCOMING SEASON?
NBA – I think it will be a Warriors and Raptors final. I’m not sure who will win, I can’t decide.
NFL – Pats, Steelers or Rams
WORST/ANNOYING EMOJIS YOU RECEIVE?
I can’t name all of them, but some of the worst/annoying emojis I’ve received would probably be these 🤯🧐🤫👀.
THOUGHTS ON GIRLS WHO GO TO GAMES TO GET WITH PLAYERS?
WOULD YOU EVER MOVE TO THE STATES?
I personally don’t plan on it, but I never know what the future holds, so never say never!
WHICH SPORTS TEAM’S FANS DO YOU HATE THE MOST?
YOU’RE SO SWEET ALL THE TIME, YOU’RE MY GIRL CRUSH
KAWHI LEONARD OR DEMAR DEROZAN?
I love both. Both are talented and will/did great for Toronto.
FAVE CHICK FLICK?
How to be single, but I’m also really obsessed with To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before at the moment LOL 😉
I love Buzzfeed (Worth It and Buzzfeed Unsolved), Try Guys, I’m obsessed with eating competitions/food competitors (I love Matt Stonie), Sean Evans and Hot Ones, Gordon Ramsey videos, Matty Matheson videos and Conan, Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel and Fallon videos
NICEST BASEBALL PLAYER/ATHLETE YOU KNOW?
Hands down Grandy. He is one of the nicest and sweetest guy and athlete I’ve ever known/met!!!!
HAVE YOU BEEN ASKED OUT BY ANY PLAYERS BEFORE?
Mind yo business.
ARE YOU A CUDDLER?
Jimmy Garoppolo, Noah Centineo, Jack Gilinsky
WOULD YOU EVER MOVE OUTSIDE OF CANADA?
I love Canada and this is where I want to live forever and raise my family. I do however want to do research and write in Europe for a couple of months, but nothing permanent! I think I’d “live” in Europe (Paris, London or Switzerland) or New Zealand (even though I’ve never been here) for a couple of weeks or months to write my research!
AL AND NL MVP?
AL: Mookie Betts
NL: Christian Yelich
HOW’RE U DOING?
Greats, thanks. How are you?
HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT I’LL GET INTO THE FIELD/INDUSTRY I WAS RIGHT OUT OF UNI?
As long as you are qualified and you have the experience, I recommend applying to a lot of jobs in your industry. Apply to every single one that you see if you have to, chances are a couple will call you back for an interview and then bring you in to meet you if they are interested. It might take a while to get your dream job, but get the experience, so that when you do get your dream job, you know how to handle the challenges.
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH HATERS?
I have a couple blog posts scheduled in October regarding bullying, so stay tuned!
WHEN YOUR COWORKERS HACKED YOUR TWITTER, THEY SAID YOU GUYS HAVE A SPONSORED CHILD/KIDS? WHAT CHARITY?
We have sponsored children through Plan Canada.
“Use your voice for kindness, your ears for compassion, your hands for charity, your mind for truth and your heart for love.”
MLB AWARD WINNER PREDICTIONS 2018?
I’m only going to guess for 3 categories!
Cy Young – Mad Max (NL) and Happ (biased lol) or Snell (AL)
Rookie of the Year – I really want Ohtani to win for AL and Acuna Jr for NL
Manager of the Year – Alex Cora (AL) and Brian Snitker (NL)
DID YOU DELETE YOUR TWITTER?
Nope, I’m still on there
YOU SHOULD ADD A HOCKEY COLLECTION TO YOUR CLOTHING LINE’S COLLECTION
I’m not saying no and I’m not saying yes, but I don’t really feel comfortable.
THOUGHTS ON PEOPLE IN MEDICINE/SCHOOL TRYING TO BECOME FAMOUS?
In my personal opinion, I am not a fan. I get it in a way, you’re trying to help premeds, but I feel like some people are doing it for the wrong reasons and are just trying to get rich and famous. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but I didn’t spend that much time, effort and money on my education to have photoshoots in research labs, hospitals etc., but that’s just me. I don’t agree with it, but it’s not my life, so it’s not my business and my opinion doesn’t matter.
WHERE DO YOU PLAN TO DO YOUR DOCTORAL DEGREE?
For privacy reasons and considering what happened last week, I would like to keep that private, thank you!
THOUGHTS ON ROBERTO OSUNA?
HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR GRAPHICS AND TEMPLATES?
Adobe Creative Cloud Apps
ARE YOU STILL WRITING A POST ABOUT TIPS HOW TO GET A JOB IN SPORTS?
Yes, I am! Sorry I’ve been busy these past couple of months, I’m going to try to post more!
YOU BLOCKED ME ON TWITTER 🙁
I tend to do that if you’re a spam, troll or a fan girl account
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH HATERS?
I have a couple posts scheduled about this topic coming soon!
HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO KEEP EVERYTHING SO PRIVATE? I TRULY ADMIRE YOUR ABILITY TO KEEP YOUR ONLINE LIFE AND REAL LIFE SEPARATE.
Thank you! It’s not really a secret, there’s no secret formula. I’ve always been private and will always be private. I keep my work and personal life presence separate because it’s just how I am, I don’t need to prove myself to people. I don’t need to post anything for strangers approval, I don’t need to post anything to get “omg goals.” It’s not who I am, I’m not trying to be someone who I’m not.
WHO WAS YOUR FAVE PLAYER ON THE BLUE JAYS?
I love them all 💙
