JUNIOR STUDENT AMBASSADORS

Yaseen

Hi my name is Yaseen.  I’m going into my second year of highschool which is grade 10. I like to play basketball as a hobby, but I do wrestling as a competitive sport. I am on my highschool wrestling team and before covid happened I placed 7th in all of peel for my weight class. Not too bad for my first year I would say. That’s a symbol that represents me because this is venom which is sometimes a good guy or bad guy to certain people. I chose this because he is a good guy who sometimes uses bad ways to be a hero. Which is the same with me because you have to break the rules sometimes to enforce the rules. 

This is something I want everyone to know: “don’t try to be the next Micheal Jordan or LeBron James, try to be the first you.”

Lee

Hi, my name is Lee. I’m going into Grade 9 and I like to code. Coding is a hobby for me. My favourite sport is basketball. I enjoy playing on a rep basketball team. I also like to play board games with my family.  Scythe is our favourite boardgame right now.  The comic hero I identify the most with is Vision. Vision usually has a neutral reaction in situations and blends into the background, just like I do. Vision is also kind and respectful to others. I try to do the same.  

My favourite quote by Bruce Lee, a martial artist and actor, is “Knowledge gives you power, but character respect.”
