I was born and raised in a small town in Ontario. I am 18 years old and entering my last year of high school at my first catholic school. I am fighting my way through life on my own, with no safety net, no family, a few great friends and supports. The challenges and hardships I have had to overcome have made me who I am today- a strong, understanding, and hard-working individual. Post-Secondary studies in Culinary Arts is just around the corner for me out British Columbia, Alberta, or possibly Prince Edward Island. In a year I will be packing up my 18 years of good and bad memories and starting fresh on a new adventure.
