My name is Darshana. I am a grade 9 student in the French Immersion Program at Walter Murray Collegiate. I love learning languages and can speak 4 different languages (English, French, Hindi and Marathi).Some of my hobbies include singing, cooking, and knitting. Right now I am preparing for my level 5 Royal Conservatory Voice exam. I also have an interest in social justice. Debate and french speaking competitions are some of the activities that I take part in.I have a passion for learning, especially in the field of science. This is my third year taking part in CWSF and last year I received a bronze medal.The inspiration for this project came from my own dilemma about choosing healthy wheat diets. With so many different wheat varieties to choose from it was difficult to make a choice on which wheat variety gives a good source of nutrients.That is why I decided to pursue this study. My advice to other students thinking about doing a project is your environments are one of the greatest places for an inspiration to science projects. So keep your eyes open! In the future I would like to continue work in the fields of nutrition and agriculture.
