As a grade 10 IB student attending Sir Winston Churchill high school in Thunder Bay Ontario, I appreciate the fine balance between academics and extra curricular activities. I strongly value creative expression and I fulfill this passion through music and art. I am a violinist in the Thunder Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra and my artwork has been chosen for display in the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. Health and wellness is another important aspect of my life. I enjoy playing soccer, snowboarding and running. Last fall, I attended the Ontario Provincial Cross Country Running Championships held in Waterloo. I strive to contribute positively to my school community through active participation in Student Council and the IB Student Advisory Group. In the community, I donate my time to volunteering at the hospital and art gallery. In the future, I would like to pursue a career in medicine and I hope to attend an honourable university in Canada. As this is my third Canadian Wide Science Fair, my advice to students considering doing a project is to go for it. Often times our own doubt is the biggest thing holding us back and once we've overcome that initial uncertainty, we can achieve anything.
