I am extremely passionate about nutrition and healthy living. I enjoy modifying recipes for healthier benefits and I volunteer at a chiropractic centre here in Guelph, Ontario. In September, I will be attending McGill University for the Dietetics and Human Nutrition major of Nutrition Sciences. I believe that people’s health and well-being are imperative. I want to take in action and create a positive difference in this world.
Leslie - Leslie Bothwell has been a driving force behind environmental initiatives at community and school levels. In 2008, Leslie was among the youngest applicants selected as one of 270 Canadians to be trained by Al Gore and David Suzuki to deliver the “An Inconvenient Truth” presentation. As the Student Council’s Environmental Coordinator, Leslie raises environmental awareness by organizing litter-less lunch campaigns, campus cleanups and recycling awareness programs. She also formed a recycling team and implemented the first functional recycling program at her high school in over 30 years. The model that was developed under Leslie’s dynamic leadership has proven to be a success and is now being rolled out across the local school board. In addition to Leslie’s environmental work, she is also a compassionate humanitarian. Locally, she worked tirelessly to plan and organize a community dinner event to raise funds for an inspirational teacher’s medical treatment. Leslie’s work has been recognized. She’s received many accolades, including a fifth place finish at Sanofi Aventis Bioteque Challenge, many leadership and volunteer awards, and awards for academic excellence. Leslie’s work to improve the environment and the lives of the people around her truly make her an inspirational leader.
