Congratulations Blanche Boucher! She has received offers from McGill University, University of Toronto and Concordia University. She will be studying Cognitive Science.
“I am interested in the Psychology and Linguistics aspect of the course; I hope to later be able to help children with speaking disabilities and learning difficulties.”
“I have been a co-president of One 4 One for 2 years now. Initially, we fundraised in order to send one girl to school in the North of Thailand, however this year, due to increased support from the Patana community, we have been able to fundraise for two children, Mol and Piyawat, which has been so gratifying. Additionally, I have been a part of Habitat for Humanity for 7 years and have attended three builds, including the most recent one in Korat.”
“Last year I was also involved in the 24-hour PNP Bilympics. This CAS Project aimed to fundraise to buy Atsushi, a boy with multiple sclerosis, a new wheelchair. The senior sleepover allowed students to pay and signup to either cycle, row or run for 20-minute slots, and we kept this going for 24 hours. Aside from all this, I help coach the Under 15 Girls’ volleyball team because I love the sport and being able to help the younger girls develop their skills and passion.”
