As the top academic student in my grade for the past five years and a member of the 90s club since high school I am very involved in my school both academically and through extracurricular activities. I am the yearbook junior editor, co-chair of the global issues committee, vice co-chair of the youth health committee as well as being on five other committees within the school. Apart from school committees I am also on the school's basketball team as well as being a captain of a team in my district's spring basketball league. Within the community I am a board member of the Hector Heritage Foundation, a Sunday school teacher and have volunteered at the Northumberland Fisheries Museum and Hatchery. My post secondary plans are to earn a biology degree then obtain a degree in medicine specializing in research haematology.

Abstract:This experiment examined stage IV lobster larvae to discover if the addition of creatine monohydrate to the larval diet would result in a greater than average increase in both body length and width after moulting. The experiment concluded with creatine trending that it will significantly increase both the larvae’s moulting size and the rate at which the larvae moulted.
