Steven Ngo, an extremely accomplished alumnus of UBC Integrated Sciences and practicing lawyer, was humorous and friendly in interview about his achievements and involvement. Conversation had laughs interspersed throughout as we managed a three-way Skype interview; ultimately, Steven had a lot to say about where Integrated Sciences, travel and his determination has taken him.
[Discrepancy in the news article: Steven graduated in science not commerce – he did a minor in commerce]
Our introductory questions for Steven were primarily about his goals going into his BSc - medicine, medicine, medicine.
Then we got into the Integrated Sciences questions because, you know, it is the ISSA blog and all.
A little bit about Dr. Hendrik Blok, (better known as Rik) - Steven gave him (and a course he ran) a great review.
Beyond the ISCI retreat and general good memories, we asked Steven about the specifics of his integration.
We were curious about Steven successful opening of the Alberta chapter of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (FACL), as well as the amount of value he places on mentorship, including and beyond the support of professors received within Integrated Sciences.
After all of our questions directly related to ISCI, we asked about Steven's foundation that he started and continues to run.
Learning about Steven's travels, exchange and experiences outside of Canada during and after is BSc makes exploring the world even more tempting.

About Me: My major is Integrated Sciences; I'm integrating physiology and psychology, and completing a minor in kinesiology. The movie 'The Imitation Game' blew my mind, and every piece done by the artist Alex Cherry is spectacular. Also, if you look up the definition of a bookworm, you'll find me.

I like hanging out at Tower Beach but you can usually find me studying at Ponderosa even though I don't live there.
