I figure I will continue my education at university but I am unsure to what program or school because things always come up and my interests change but if I had to pick today I would like to go to UBC for Engineering.. For the engineer part I enjoy physics and I really like to do something where I have creativity in my work and the designing assect of engineering would allow me to do that. After visiting Vancouver I really enjoyed the city and see it as a great place to live and UBC is located right on the tip of Vancouver. Going to UBC also means being close to some very good snowboarding as Whistler is only 1 hour away and Grouse mountain and Mt seymour are a short bus ride

    Whenever I would compete in any type competition, my mom would always say, “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, you are here and that’s all that matters.” My snowboarding career began when my parents purchased a house in Killington, Vermont, a mere decade before I was born.
