## Profile

I am a current grade 12 student and will be graduating high school June 2017 with honors. Next fall, I will be attending Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto. I have had the privilege to participate in a peer tutoring course this past semester, providing assistance and guidance to a grade 10 academic science class. I have demonstrated an exemplary understanding of academic subjects such as mathematics, biology, and chemistry. I encourage others to achieve their greatest potential by asking critical questions to allow them to develop a conclusive understanding.

I spent my grade 11 year of high school studying abroad in Italy. This amazing experience allowed me to immerse myself in the Italian culture and language. I became efficient in the Italian language as well as achieving my B2 level certification.
