My name is Danielle Shwed and I currently attend Holly Meadows Elementary School in Barrie Ontario. I love to act; I have been in three musicals so far and am rehearsing for another upcoming production. I also play the piano; I am in grade 4 conservatory and have recently won a gold medal at the Barrie Kiwanis Music festival. I love to play volleyball, go shopping, sketch and design, and spend time with family and friends. I am very interested in psychology and plan on being either a neuropsychologist or cognitive psychologist. At the regional science fair I won best in category and best in fair. I am very excited to take part in such a prestigious event!
