I am the oldest of three and we live in rural Ontario. I am very interested in the environment and am very busy with extra curricular activities. I play in a girls hockey league and in the summer, soccer. I have a part time job as a pharmacy assistant. I play school sports and enjoy the outdoors with my family. I am thinking of going into the health sciences post secondary and from there, will decide where it will take me. In picking a science fair project, I would recommend that you chose something that you are passionate about. That way, it isn't an effort to research everything. I chose my project to investigate the truth behind the "Dawn dish soap" claim of being the best for marine wildlife in the occurrence of an oil spill. I would love the opportunity to research if there is a better solution for cleaning marine wildlife after a spill.
