I moved to Sudbury at age four and began elementary school at Levack Public School. In grade 2 I had the opportunity to skip the third grade, and I did so. In grade 8 I was accepted into the Science and Technology Education Program at Lockerby Composite School. I am studying in the STEP French Immersion program. My interests include: languages, science, politics, geography, history and travel. Over the last two years i've had the chance to experience travelling to China, Spain, Morocco and most recently New York City. At school I'm the assistant editor of the yearbook and student chair of the Open House Comittee. I love sports, I love to run, play tennis, swim, curl, bike, play soccer and ski among others. I would like to take a Political Science/Biochemistry double major in University and eventually get into an MD/PhD program, where i can do both research and practice medicine and later on in life go into Medical Journalism and perhaps politics.

Taxol and Flaxseed: A more effective treatment of Breast Cancer
Division:Life Sciences / None
City:Onaping, ON
School:Chelmsford Valley District Composite School, Lockerby Composite
Abstract:Breast cancer affects many women. Based on initial findings; Flax Seed Oil was tested with multiple chemotheraputics to determine the effectiveness in comparison to the chemotherapy treatment alone. Taxol and Flax have the most effective treatment combination in comparison to other drugs. This combination promotes apoptosis and at high doses the combination promotes necrosis. This is a significant step forward in future treatments.
