Meet Our New PR Correspondent!

Reika Nomura, a current staff writer, will be joining the executive UBC Her Campus team in September 2018 as our new PR Correspondent. To get to know her a little better, we asked her a few questions:

Hometown: San Jose, California / Kyoto, Japan

Year: Third

Major: Psychology

Favorite place on campus: The upstairs area of JJ Bean

How you chose your major: I struggled with mental health issues most of my life, and also have met many people who also struggle with mental health issues. Since I was always interested in how the human mind works, I thought I could combine my interest and possibly contribute to finding a way to help those who struggle like I do.

How you chose UBC: A lot of reasons! Mainly because it seemed like a great, diverse environment.

Why you decided to join Her Campus: I love writing!

Current song you can’t stop listening to: “Love sick blues” (Walmart Yodel boy version)

Next place you want to travel to: Bali 

What you’re most looking forward to this Summer: Spending time with my sister

First word that comes to mind when you hear “Vancouver”: Rain

Go-to outfit for class: Jeans (with leggings underneath because it’s so cold), and a cozy sweater

Quote you guide your life by: “It is our choices that show us what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

TV/literary character you most identify with: Luna Lovegood or Frodo Baggins

Favorite memory at UBC: Meeting the best friends I have ever made.
