Describe your childhood/growing-up years (8-13 years old):
My childhood was extremely full of activities. My mom signed me up for all sorts of things such as swimming, ballet, karate, and the list goes on and on. Also, we moved to the suburban area of Montreal when I was 7 so it was around that time that I had to learn to be more sociable and make new friends.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment is the day of my graduation. I visited my grandfather after and saw him all dressed up with my graduation hat and robe. The smile he had on his face and that look he had when he saw me was priceless.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
Awareness about pollution. I take the bus everyday to school and realize how important it is to have clean air and a clean environment. To understand the importance of these is also a way to answer the needs of our environment.
