My name is Melissa Chopcian. I am a grade 9 student at Northern Collegiate in Sarnia, Ontario. My science fair project is an innovation that can be used to recharge a pacemaker battery. I have many interests. I like to volunteer at our local hospital and nursing home. I also like to play the piano and alto saxophone. I really enjoy playing sports such as hockey, skiing, sailing, swimming, volleyball, and tennis. I have an older brother named Christopher. He is also competing in the CWSF this year in the senior category. My favorite subjects in school are math and science. I really enjoy solving equations and learning about neat things. When I grow up, I want to become a pediatrician. I truly like helping others, especially sick children.
