My name is Courtney Halldorson. I am 13 years old and enjoy many activities. I participate in basketball, volleyball, baseball, drama, music festival, dance, swimming, and track. I like to bake, cook meals involving noodles and make crafts. My favorite foods are noodles, chocolate, ice cream and pickles. I don't like olives and, sometimes, my brother. I love going shopping and being with my friends. Last year I won 5th place in our local science fair and got to go to Provincial Winner's Showcase in Regina. I have won awards or medals in track, music festival (speech arts), dance competition, and poster contests. I plan on becoming a pharmacist after attending the Universtiy of Victoria and one day, open up my own pharmacy.
