Kaitlyn – Balfour Collegiate

My name is Kaitlyn Tonita, and I’m currently in my senior year at Balfour Collegiate. I’ve had the privilege of representing not only the Redmen but the Bears as well during my four years at Balfour. I am the youngest of three children with very amazing and supportive parents.

I’ve grown up playing sports, mainly basketball. I’ve been able to be a part of the provincial team for two seasons as well as the Prairie Elite Basketball League team. However, I’ve taken the opportunity to become involved in different aspects of my school. During all four years, I’ve been a player on the basketball and volleyball teams. Additionally, for the past two years, I’ve joined cross country, ultimate Frisbee as well as Balfour’s SRC, where I am the sports representative. Then I decided to become more involved in a different aspect of my school; I joined Project B as well as our musical this year. Having the opportunity to not only try out, but be part of all these teams and groups has given me the chance to meet new people as well as gain different attributes that have developed me as a person.

Balfour has given me many opportunities to grow as a person as well as an athlete. I would never have developed into the person I am without the amazing staff at Balfour, and I will forever be thankful for everything they’ve taught me. As my future progresses, I hope to continue my basketball career and further my education.
