Fred - My name is Fred Yin. I immigrated from China 6 years ago. I am currently attending Centennial Collegiate and Vocational Institute in Guelph, Ontario, in grade 11. I am working part-time as a computer associate at Staples Business Depot. During my spare time, I like to play guitar, swim and jog. This is my first time at CWSF. After high-school, I plan on going to the University of Toronto for Biotechnology or Pharmaceutical Science, then possibly enrol in medical school.
Arshia - I was born on January 21, 1989 in Tehran, Iran. My family moved to Canada in 1998 and came to Guelph after the Millennium. I have tried to do my best in school, and in doing so, I have always kept a 90+ average since grade 9. Furthermore, I participate in school activities such as mentorship, prefects, concert-band and sport teams. During high school, I took every science course available, which made me realize the passions and interests that I have in that field. Thus, I plan to go on to Medical School and learn to become a skilful surgeon. I took up piano when I was 9 years old and have completed my Grade 9 Conservatory examinations and am currently working on my Grade 10. Moreover, I enjoy competing in sports such as soccer, swimming, badminton and body-building. My interest in swimming has led me to work as an Instructor/Lifeguard for the City of Guelph. In the community, I volunteer as a teaching-assistant in "Persian Classes for Kids" on Saturdays and at an Animal Clinic on Fridays.
