I first fell in love with science through Science Fair. What I thought was just another project became my heart and soul as I endeavoured to fix everyday problems with my creativity and determination. I've won first place in every Regional Science Fair I've joined, and I was fortunate enough to attend the Canadian National Science Fair twice - the second time receiving honourable mention for our team project "ComPawst Bins". The ComPawst Bin is a redesigned take on a bear-proof compost receptacle (Oooh, I do love that word), an issue near and dear to my heart living in a mountain town where composting isn't allowed because of wildlife. Science Fair has, and always will be, an unforgettable experience and an unexpected path to find oneself.
