“I will miss Metro's friendly and in­ti­mate at­mos­phere. It isn't a typ­i­cal school, it is more of a fam­ily.”

How does it feel to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian? I didn't ex­pect it, be­cause it was my first year at Metro, but I am hon­oured and proud. How do you think Met­ro­pol­i­tan Prepara­tory Academy has pre­pared you for life af­ter

grad­u­a­tion? This was my first year in Canada, and I think Metro was a good im­mer­sion into life in this coun­try. I think its in­flu­ence was sig­nif­i­cant on my char­ac­ter as well. What ad­vice would you give to new stu­dents on how to get the most out of their time at Metro Prep? Metro is a mul­ti­cul­tural place, just like Toronto, so take the time to learn about dif­fer­ent cul­tures and meet dif­fer­ent peo­ple from dif­fer­ent back­grounds. What’s your big­gest ac­com­plish­ment to date? My big­gest ac­com­plish­ment was com­ing to Canada with my younger brother. Be­ing sep­a­rated from my fam­ily and all my friends was a chal­lenge that I conquered. What are your plans for univer­sity? I have been ac­cepted to Ry­er­son Univer­sity. I am ma­jor­ing in phi­los­o­phy with plans to dou­ble ma­jor in English.
