"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today."-James Dean. That quote basically sums me up. I have goals in life that I wish to achieve such as: attending the university of my choice, completing a Ph.D in a field of science, getting a job that I love, and experiencing amazing things along the way. While I am focusing on these goals, I try to live life to its fullest. I don't believe in just going with the flow; I like to try new things and do what I can for the world we live in. That's why at school I participate in the art club, continue to take drama as a course, am part of sports teams, am involved in a Free The Children community club, and am on the debate team. I also enjoy snowboarding, listening to music, and being with my amazingly supportive friends. Two of my most memorable experiences in my life so far are my trip to Greece for a turtle conservation volunteer project, and, not surprisingly, last year's CWSF in Peterborough. My message is: do what you love, and don't be afraid to stand up for it.

Population Dynamics in Algal Bioreactors
City:Markham, ON
School:Havergal College
Abstract:The experiment explored if algal photobioreactors populated with multiple species would lead to greater thermal stability than single-species systems. The effects of a sudden temperature drop were studied on both single and multi-species systems. All combinations of three different species were tested. The system of all three species of algae demonstrated greater stability throughout the temperature shock trials than the single-species bioreactors did.
