What program will you be taking in post-secondary and why does it interest you?
I will be attending University of British Columbia. I’ll be focusing on Psychology and Visual Arts because I’m interested in human behaviour and I would like to expand my art skills.
Tell us a little bit about your background (growing up, going to school, extra-curricular activities, etc.).
I grew up in Afghanistan and I moved to Canada when I was 8 years old. I went to Moscrop Secondary and I was a part of our Leadership Program, Student Government and I was the Chief Editor of our Yearbook. I love to read (I mostly read YA and classics). I enjoy painting, drawing and other art projects. I try to bake whenever I have time, some of my favourite things to bake are Croissants, Cream Puffs, Sponge Cake, and Macarons. I’m not very athletic but I bike and ice skate a lot.
