My name is Emma Bush and I attend North Colchester High School (Nova Scotia). I am in grade 9 this year and am 14 years old. I am a student council representative for my grade and am also the vice president of my local 4-H club. I was home-schooled up until two years ago when I joined the public school system in grade 8. I greatly enjoy school and have consistently had top marks in my grade since joining NCHS. I also recently won "student of the month" at my school (in October). I take part in multiple extra-curricular activities that include hockey (I was the captain of my all girl team), horse back riding, piano (I am taking my grade 6 piano exam at Mount Allison in June), singing and downhill skiing. In my spare time, I run, spend time with/ride my horses, listen to or play music, write or read (currently I enjoy historical fiction themed books). In the future, I would either like to become a veterinarian or a writer/journalist/author . . . or maybe both. This is my first year of taking part in Science fair and I placed 4th overall in my region.
