I am a student at Vancouver Island University (VIU) studying biology. I grew up on Protection Island, a very small island in the Nanaimo Harbour between Gabriola and Newcastle.  I have always had a passion for biology, specifically biology that has to do with the human body and immune system. I am following my passion by specializing in microbiology and cell biology, with the goal of soon writing my MCAT and applying to med school. I play on the varsity soccer team at VIU and am currently in my fourth year of five. I love school and soccer and am extremely happy being able to pursue my education while also playing the sport I love.
