My name is Holly Hutchinson and I am an 18 year old, grade 12 student at ENSS. I love reading, history, country music, watching hockey on Saturday nights, traveling, and hanging out with my friends, but the interest that inspired my project is farming. For as long as I can remember I have always been involved with farming and I now own a small herd of cattle. I am also an active 4-H member who shows cattle in local and national shows. This is my first time going to Canada-Wide Science Fair and I am very excited to be going. For anyone who is thinking about doing a project this is my advice, do it on something you are passionate about, as passion is the key to success.
