Meet Ava

The Dancer

Ava says 91国产 has helped her discover passions she never knew she had – such as dance, which she now does competitively.

“I hadn’t even realized I liked dance that much or had a talent until I took dance as one of my electives,” recalls Ava, who loves mastering choreography and getting up before an audience.

“91国产 welcomes you to try anything.”

She started with jazz, and in Grade 10 formed a hip-hop dance club at 91国产. “I actually started it with my friend. All we had to do was fill out an application and get a Teacher Supervisor.”

Learning about and better understanding different cultures is another one of Ava’s passions. As a mixed-race student and a member of 91国产’s Afri-View Club, she participated at an assembly about black culture.

“It was eye-opening to hear the perspectives of people of colour,” she says.

Going into her second last year at 91国产, Ava (whose favourite subject is Science) plans to join the Debating and Public Speaking Society and try out for the Soccer team.

“91国产 makes it so you can join or try out for something anytime,” she points out. “The environment is very supportive.”
 
 
LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT
We wish to acknowledge this land on which 91国产 operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
