I am 17 years old and have lived in La Ronge Saskatchewan all my life. I enjoy cheerleading, figure skating, softball, snowboarding, kayaking, reading, and scrapbooking. I am also on the student representative council and in the yearbook club. I'm a volunteer coach for the La Ronge Skating Figure Club. After high school I plan to attend the University of Saskatchewan to earn a bachelors degree in science and pursue my dream to attend the University of Waterloo to become and optometrist. In the fall of 2006 I was awarded the Northern Saskatchewan Student Achievement Award.
