My name is Edward Wong, and I am a 13-year-old, grade 8 student of Kumsheen Secondary School in Lytton, British Columbia. This is the second year that I have qualified to attend the Canada-Wide Science Fair, following a bronze medal in environmental innovation last year. I am the number four of six finalists of YouTube contest held by Year of Science BC this year. I have survived from Kawasaki Disease and recovered as a normal person after having high fever of 104 degree for five weeks, four giant aneurysms, a blockage in my left coronary artery and a heart attack when I was four month-old. So, I was brought up to cherish every moment of my life and others. I do not know the exact career I am pursuing yet but something to do with helping lots of people. My interest includes hockey, basketball, soccer, baseball, electric guitar, drums, piano and chess. I particularly enjoy listening to and learning from others.
