Mackenzie - I am a 15 year old, grade 10 student at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI), in Smiths Falls, Ontario. I enjoy participating in sports such as soccer and basketball, both in school and competitively. As part of the extended French program since grade 5, I recently had the opportunity to travel to Quebec on an exchange with my class. During the year I enjoy volunteering with different teams and sports tournaments, doing a variety of jobs. With my family we like to go on camping trips, as well as hiking, swimming and kayaking in the summer. In the future I am heading towards the direction of physiotherapy or kinesiology; something that will enable me to work with athletes. This is my first experience with science fair outside of school and I am looking forward to it.
