I had the honour of carrying the Olympic Torch during the torch relay for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. I was nominated by the staff at Stelly's Secondary School and had the pleasure of running my portion of the relay in my local neighbourhood. This experience was humbling and I thoroughly enjoyed how it brought members of the community together.
I shared the role of valedictorian for the Stelly's Class of 2011 as voted by the graduating students.
I have been fortunate to travel and experience different cultures as a part of my education as well as on my own. During these opportunities I have further developed competencies in personal management, social responsibility, and intercultural motivation.
