My name is Zachary Giczi and I am thirteen years old. I was born in Fort Nelson, British Columbia but moved to Whitehorse, Yukon at the age of five with my parents and younger brother. I have done all of my schooling in Whitehorse, and am currently in grade 8 at Vanier Catholic Secondary School. I started Karate at the age of nine and I am now a 2nd Kyu brown belt. Besides karate, I also play volleyball, hockey, basketball, and tennis. I play on Sub-Zero, which is the Yukon’s territorial volleyball team, and I will be representing the Yukon at the under 14 championships in Saskatchewan this spring. I played on my school’s basketball team and we finished first in the Yukon school championships. I love sports and enjoy playing them competitively and just for fun. When I get older, my current plans are to go to University and take a degree in Economics and Business, with the goal of becoming a sports agent.
