My name is Ahmed Nadeem, and I am a grade 11 student in the International Baccalaureate program at St. Robert Catholic High School in Markham. I have a deep interest in the sciences, specifically biology and chemistry. I am a dynamic and active participant in many of my school clubs, HOSA, debate, and the French newspaper club. In my spare time, I make computer games and watch videos on the latest science news. Many times, news of foods curing cancer pop-up. Due to my analytical nature, I examined such claims and became very curious about the latest research. This is where my science project was born. I researched further and further, asking more profound and more in-depth questions. I stumbled upon resources, videos, and articles to help me in understanding my topic of antioxidants. But at the same time, I had to become resourceful and set up a little lab in my room. I was working with chemicals and equipment, but in the end, I pushed the envelope of humanity’s understanding of biology. I discovered something new, and that would be my tip to future science fair participants. Push the envelope of what is known and stay curious.
