We have also showed others who need to know about or Canadian History. We picked this project because Kendyl and I want to be in a medical profession and its a step closer to accomplishing our goals. In the future I hope to educate others about the importance of preventing illnesses. i realized being organized and confident while presenting your project is important.
Kendyl - My name is Kendyl Sylliboy. I am seventeen years of age, Grade 12 student at the Wekoqmaq Mikmaw School. I come from a small reserve located Cape Breton, Ns. I have taken my role as a student seriously and participated in all aspects of my education. I have support my fellow students and worked as a role model for those younger than I. I am grounded to my Mikmaw culture this allows me to stand strong by my beliefs. Last year in my grade 11 year I was lucky enough to participated in a project which highlighted the impact of Residential School in my community. I was the member if a team in my school who traveled to New York City to present to the United Nations about this experience and impact. In the fall I will attending the Bachelor of Arts Program at St. Francis Xavier University, transitioning from High School to University will be a challenge, but I will strive to complete my program to the best of my abilities. I’m so glad that I got this far in the Science Fair, the advice I’d give to other students is to have confidence in their projects.
