Laura Ellen - I was born on March 30th 1995, in Montreal, Quebec to my parents Heather Smith-Rigg and Paul Rigg. We then moved to Ontario for a few years, and re-located again after the birth of my brother in 1997, to Nova Scotia. I always enjoyed science all through elementary, and my love of science has grown through Junior High. I've managed to keep a high 90 plus average throughout the last three years in my late french immersion program, along with participation in many activities including paddling, weightlifting, swimming, dancing, track and multiple volunteering activities. I recently participated in a Haiti relief campaign, "Hot Chocolate for Haiti" where my bestfriend and CWSF partnermRosa and I sold hot chocolate at our junior high's canteen, raising money for medication, food and clean water to help those in effected by the earthquake in Haiti. Another one of my past times is music, I play the trumpet, and enjoy a variety of music. My future plans include attending Dartmouth High, and getting my bilingual diploma, and attending university. Persuing a career in either science, business, or possibly firefighting.
