2021 Youth Education Award Recipient

I cannot begin to express my deepest appreciation for being a recipient of the 2021 Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Youth Education Award!
While I take great pride in persevering in the face of a myriad of barriers, I am grateful for the researchers and healthcare professionals who work tirelessly to answer hopes and support youth like myself.
This award has motivated me and made me one step closer to pursuing my goals of becoming a social justice researcher. I aim to engage in mental health research to help adopt systems that will create lasting impacts in our community.
I would also like to express an everlasting gratitude for donor Deys Fabricating. I am humbled by the time and resources they have dedicated to help me pursue my dreams. Thank you for your generous support!
