Tara - HK student profiles

Why Tara chose Human Kinetics

"I applied to university in grade 12 without a clue about what I wanted to study. Throughout high school I'd always been interested in biology and chemistry, so I applied to and accepted admission into the Biochemistry program at Guelph, which I thought was a pretty logical choice... turns out it wasn't! The combination of analytical and organic chemistry with oodles of calculus was not in my wheelhouse. I switched into Biology for a semester, and tried to figure out the next move.

As a competitive speed skater and track athlete, my heart (and brain) has always been pretty invested in skeletal muscle physiology, adaptations to exercise and and understanding how the body works. I decided to take Human Physiology, Applied Human Biology and Anatomy in third year to shadow the HK program and I was hooked. It was like an academic endorphin rush. I loved all three courses and switched into HK in the second week of that semester."
