What inspires you to volunteer your time towards science for the benefit of humanity?

Being able to volunteer with Weizmann Canada is one of my most exciting endeavours. As a passionate lifelong learner, I love hearing about projects at the institute and updates from scientists regarding their research. Every event I’ve attended has brought together a diverse and multidisciplinary community of individuals who share in their admiration for science. For me, it’s not just about my own discovery and inspiration, I enjoy sharing these events with family and friends to inspire and inform them as well. Volunteering with Weizmann doesn’t feel like a commitment, it feels like a privilege to be a part of such an exciting and important institution benefiting humanity.
