Winston Knoll Collegiate

My name is Breanna Holt, and I was born and raised in Regina. I grew up with a very close and loving family and have always been very determined to be a great role model for my little brother. The support I have had throughout my life has been incredible. I know that I would not be the person I am without the remarkable influence my family has had on me.

Growing up, I was always surrounded by animals. My mom used to be a dog groomer who worked from home, so I would spend all of my spare time with the dogs. She always referred to me as the dog whisperer. My family has also had many pets, including dogs, cats, guinea pigs, pigs, hermit crabs, a leopard gecko, a tortoise and even a parrot. Loving and taking care of all of these animals has helped me become the caring person I am today. I am so grateful for all of the animals in my life.

I first fell in love with music at a very young age, even to the point where I learned how to read by playing rock band. I grew up taking both singing and guitar lessons. I later taught myself how to play the ukulele. There is always music playing in my life and the passion extends to the rest of my family as well. Music has always been my way of not only coping but also connecting with people.

As of October, I have been accepted into the Faculty of Science under Pre-Medicine at the University of Regina. I am beyond excited to someday be working in the medical field. There is nothing else I picture myself doing. The area I would love to be working in is pediatrics. To have a job where I can help people and be working with kids checks all of my boxes. I hope to be able to do good in this world.
