I want to thank my sister Madeline. I've had a lot of support from my family and parents, but my sister is my role model. Since I was young she enforced my intelligence and always told me I would go to University. And I got accepted into an honors program for a bachelor of science in biology. She was happy, but cool. Telling me she always knew I'd get in, it was obvious. She never had a doubt. She's been a guide every step of the way despite the distance between us. And I am so grateful for her showing me it is possible. Her and I are first generation of our family to go not only to post secondary, but to university. She's pushed me, telling me I could do the things I wasn't sure I could. I'm going to Medical School to be a doctor. I never would have made it this far without her.
