Matthew - I have always adored the concept of engineering and science. I remember telling my parents when I was in grade 6 about how I wanted to become an engineer. As a result of my interests, many of my friends and I would constantly come up with new ideas for projects and things we wanted to build. Things we learn in school often inspire new kinds of projects. In grade 11, a good friend of mine and I started a club at our school for those interested in science and engineering. Through this club, we participate in science fairs and various other competitions. In addition to activities involving science, I spend a great deal of time in the West Vancouver Youth Band as a trumpet player. I also played many years of lacrosse, and i enjoy skiing and mountain biking. Fortunately, I will be attending the University of Waterloo next year (my parents and brother attended Waterloo, and it has almost been my dream to be a student and Waterloo).
Nicholas - I have lived in Vancouver for the majority of my life. I never really took a specific interest in science, or engineering until last year, after having seen various labs in different universities. However, I am also passionate about music, and have applied to many universities for a degree in music. After my success in the Greater Vancouver Regional Science Fair, I realized that perhaps I do have the skill, and intelligence to pursue a career in engineering, and now strive to juggle my various disciplines in order to achieve this.
