“The opposite of courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow” – Jim Hightower
Who I am: a Vancouverite who’s very fond of monkey toques, tic tacs, soccer, and playing in the dirt.
My year:I’m leaving my eccentric green house in the care of my mother and little sister while I spend my last two years of high school at Pearson United World College on Vancouver Island. The school brings together 160 students from over 100 different countries to live and learn together, focusing on intercultural understanding. Everybody attends on full scholarship covering tuition, room, and board.
I’m descended from the Hatfields of the Hatfields and the McCoys, the two famous feuding families from Kentucky/West Virginia (the feud started over a hog and twelve men ended up dead).
My name is also the name of an Afghani airline company.
I love musicals, especially the Sound of Music and Fiddler on the Roof.
I’ve been vegetarian since I was three.
