Loh Yen Chan
Riverside Secondary School
Mini Bio:Loh Yen, 19, became an "instant star" at Riverside Secondary School in Windsor, Ontario, when the principal announced to the school that he had placed first of over 5,000 contestants in the 1999 biology competition. Loh Yen is studying biology, chemistry, physics, calculus, and sociology in his first year at U of T, with the goal of a research career in molecular genetics and molecular biology. He likes the fact that the University of Toronto is in the heart of a big city. His advice to high school students when choosing a university to attend is to "make sure the atmosphere, location, and size are right for you."
