MEET NICOLE

My name is Nicole Huynh and I am the Residence Life Coordinator here at Centennial Place. I was born and raised in Toronto. I enjoy working in Residence Life because of the opportunity to create a supportive environment for a diversity of students. I am excited to meeting and getting to know everyone here. I can't wait to see you all at upcoming community events! I have a younger sister and we are very close to each other. I recently finished my undergraduate degree in Environment & Business at the University of Waterloo. I am interested in Waste Management - so if you ever want to talk about recycling, come to me!

PLACES I WANT

My favourite hobbies outside of work is riding my scooter, helping my mom cook (she makes the best food), listening to music, gardening (I am currently growing bok choy), taking sunset walks and playing online games with my friends (I love playing Overcooked! and Among Us)
