My name is Kendra Manz. I live in Edmonton, Alberta and attend Avonmore Junior High in the Nelly McClung program for young women. I belong to the Newspaper club and am very active in volunteer work around the city. I enjoy reading, writing stories and poems, two of which have been published, and the outdoors. I enjoy science, and because I am interested in a career in Forensics or Pathology, will likely attend W. P. Wagner High School for it’s Forensics program.
