Graduating Grade: 12
“I learned so much from the students around me, especially from those in my class. They have a passion for success.”
How do you think The Bishop Strachan School has prepared you for life after graduation? The Bishop Strachan School has always provided students with support, especially when planning for life after graduation. Starting in Grade 9, we were given a choice to pursue a range of courses that allowed us to narrow in on our interests.
Did you have a teacher who inspired you? In Grade 10, I had the privilege of having Mr. Stewart as my Canadian history teacher. I loved history at a young age, but I forgot about that interest as I grew older. Mr. Stewart's passion for history and Canada reminded me of my desire to learn more about different cultures and the progression of society. How does it feel to be awarded valedictorian? I never imagined that I would be selected as valedictorian. At first, I was terrified as I am not a public speaker. But my teachers and classmates at BSS have always pushed me to face my fears. What are your plans for university? In the fall, I will be attending Barnard College.
