    Mature and first-generation student Heidi-Lyn O’Connor was awarded the Gay Hansen Award in Biology this year.
“I’ve worked really hard to do this with two kids and knowing my lab instructors, who I really love and adore, return that sentiment and notice my hard work is really meaningful to me,” says O’Connor.
In May, she had the chance to participate in the Galápagos Islands Conservation Physiology Field School in Biology — an experience she had dreamed of for many years.
O’Connor is also highly involved in the East Coast music scene. She was awarded a 2024 East Coast Music Award (ECMA) for Visual Artist of the Year and a 2023 ECMA for Media Person of the Year. She also received Music New Brunswick Champion of the Year in 2021 and 2023. She recently had the opportunity to be on the red carpet as media at the JUNOs in Halifax, NS.
