My name is Susan MacInnis, and I am from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. I am in grade 10 and love to read, write, dance, and play recreational tennis. Winning first place in my regional science fair is my most significant academic achievement. In the future my eventual goal is to become a lawyer. I am thankful to have chosen a project that genuinely interests me and had a connection with what to do I would like to do in the future. To further my project I would like to test more participants to ensure increased levels of accuracy. In addition, I would like to investigate whether or not a certain age group and/or gender was more as an eyewitness.
