My name is Briony Merritt and I am in Grade Nine at Oxford Junior High school in Halifax, NS. I recently moved to Canada from Swindon, England, and I am enjoying living in a different country, surrounded by a fresh, vibrant culture. Some of my interests include: reading, writing, playing guitar, running and swimming. I train with the Halifax Trojan Aquatic Swim Club in a High Performance group, and this has given me the opportunity to travel to many different places throughout Canada, while competing in a sport I love. I am also currently writing a novel, which is a difficult, but enjoyable, challenge. Next year, I plan on entering the Pre-IB program at Citadel High School, and afterwards to attend University. I am not sure right now what field of work I am looking for in the future, but a career in science is definately an option! This is my first Canada Wide Science Fair and I am looking forward to a new and exciting experience.
