My name is Emma Morgan and I live in Fernie, British Columbia. I am currently in Grade 9 at The Fernie Academy. My school has so many amazing things to offer! Some that I really enjoy are the sports teams and the languages including french, german, and spanish. I am a competitive athlete as I do many sports including triathlon, skiing, volleyball, wake surfing, mountain biking and swimming. I also play the piano and love travelling and exploring. I love nothing more than spending time with family and friends. I enjoy participating in school activities and volunteer work including, speech contests, debates, and science fair as well as many fundraising activities. I am the Prefect Coordinator for my school. I got my inspiration for this project primarily from online research as well as personal experiences and injuries from being a former competitive figure skater and dancer. I would absolutely love to continue on and improve this project, looking at more joints in the body. My advice for other students thinking about doing a project would be "just do it!" Have some fun with it because great things can come out of your experience creating a project!
