Interview Series

How did your experience at CGCS impact and influence you/your life? 

My time at Calgary Girls Charter School shaped me as a young woman. Through the curriculum taught, and the values of the school, I was able to find confidence within myself. Teachers at CGCS are like no other. They care about the wellbeing, as well as the futures of their students. As a young girl, attending school every day was exciting, as I was challenged and my skills were celebrated. The Go Girls curriculum, taught me what it meant to be an empowered female, and lead my life with integrity and strength. It is amazing what an environment filled with encouragement, leadership and empowerment can do for a young woman.

Where are you and what are you doing now? 

Currently I am studying in the Honours Specialization of Political Science program at Western University with aspirations to attend law school, post graduation.

What are you reading? What are you watching? What are you listening to? 


Besides my textbooks, I am currently reading “  101 essays that will change the way you think” by Brianna Wiest. This book has taught me new things about changing my mindset in certain situations.






I honestly have very little time to spend watching videos, as I am entirely consumed by online school.


I love listening to podcasts! One of my favourites is “  Working Title” by Margot Lee. This podcast inspires me to maintain an organized life, and work hard towards my goals.
