My name is Liam Leger and I am 14 years old. I live in Stratford, Ontario, home of the world famous Shakespearean Festival theatre. I attend a grade 7 to 12 school and my favourite subject (besides gym) is science. Some of the sports I play are hockey, soccer, baseball,and tennis. I also like to downhill ski. I also like to skateboard and go camping. I've camped my way across Canada and my favourite place was Nova Scotia. This is the second year I've participated in the regional Sci-Tech competition in my area but the first year I've gone to the Nationals. I'm always interested to know if the products on informercials really live up to their names and claims. I'd like to attend university when I graduate high school and become an Optometrist.
