I am a 11th grade student in the IB program at Sir Winston Churchill Secondary in Vancouver, BC. My favourite subject is science (specifically microbiology), which is also the field in which I'd like to pursue a career (post-secondary). My hobbies include playing violin, reading detective fiction and watching TV. My project deals with investigating the mode of action of the chemical constituents of a plant extract as a potential anti-diarrheal agent.
