A: I was super excited. I’m the first in my town to receive it. It’s not just about the money; it's about the opportunities to meet people.
A: My plan is to complete a degree in science and then apply to medical school. I will remain a competitive runner and volunteer in whichever community I end up going to school. I'm looking at campuses across Canada now.
A: Going to SHAD took me out of my comfort zone. Everyone says it’s a life changing experience, and it truly was! I became more motivated and more confident. SHAD helped me in my interview with Loran because my confidence had grown so much. SHAD allowed me to approach strangers and my peers at SHAD and Loran. I now know I will always have something in common with them.
A: That meeting new people can open up so many doors. Coming from a small town, I am often with the same people. I learned to go engage in new things in the world and your community. I recently joined the MP Youth Council because I heard about it at SHAD.
A: SHAD is a program that allows people to explore their interests in the STEAM domain. SHAD is not just about doing a design engineering project; you become part of a community of people just like you. That’s what is so important about SHAD .
