Introducing: Jannie Chien

Hi! My name is Jannie and I am a 4th year Innis student pursuing a double major in Sociology and Human Geography. I currently work at the Residence front desk and in the Registrar's Office as a workstudy. Participating in extra-curriculars has always been very important to me, and this year I have been lucky enough to be part of the IRC as a Senior House Rep, the Innis College Council, and the Innis Trivia Club
Jannie Portrait
I was immersed in the arts at a very young age. When I came to UofT, I joined every creative outlet (and then some): choirs, a capella groups, "Vancouver clubs," ultimate frisbee... you name it! By my 3rd year, I had spread myself too thin and burned out. I became overwhelmed because I didn't know how to say no. After careful evaluation of my priorities, I scaled back, telling myself that it's better to do a good job in few things than a mediocre job in a lot. Despite my struggles in finding a balance, I cannot stress the importance of participating in extra-curriculars enough. It's important to have a fun hobby to fall back on when you need a break from studies!

My advice to you is to get involved in at least one way in your undergrad. You won't get these opportunities anywhere else!
