Q: Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Skylar Hook, and I’m a 15-year-old in grade 10. I have a pet bunny that takes up a lot of my time. Some things I enjoy doing are volleyball and reading. Science has always been my best and most interesting subject.

Q: Why do you want to participate in the Shad program/ What are you most looking forward to?

The thing I am most looking forward to during Shad would probably be the opportunities to meet new people. Living in a town with a population of around 1000 people makes it hard to meet new people, especially people who share similar ambitions to mine! I am also excited to get an idea of what it’s like living at a university in an unfamiliar area. I think it will be a good way to explore my interests as well.

Q: What motivates or sparks your curiosity in STEAM and/or entrepreneurship?   

 Living in a small town there also is a lack of opportunities to explore my interests in STEAM. Limited courses make it difficult to try everything I want to. I’ve always had a mind that will take any and all information. I love learning new things in STEAM because there is an endless supply of fun information, and there are also a ton of things to choose from, so you can never get bored!

Q: How do you envision your future?

As of recently, I plan on being a radiologic technologist. Despite my ever-undecided mind, I’ve always envisioned myself with a career in the medical field. I have always been fascinated by travel and plan on going to a university in Europe. When I get my degree, I am interested in living in London, the land of double-decker buses. Once I have saved up enough money, I wish to travel as far and wide as I can possibly manage in my tiny life.
