James W.

Dr. Martin LeBoldus Catholic High School

My name is James Wall, and I am a grade 12 student at Dr. Martin LeBoldus Catholic High School. If someone describes me to others, the words, funny, happy, and adventurous are synonymous with my name. I am very passionate about all challenges I take on, including those posed by my favorite sport, Taekwon-Do. I have been competing in martial arts tournaments since I was about five years old, and I have never looked back. The sport has offered me a chance to travel across the country, as well as a fantastic opportunity to teach and connect with kids. Wherever I go to teach, I enjoy being a welcoming and friendly face for people to recognize. In 2019, I placed 1st at the Western Canadian Championships and 3rd at the National Championship, these being the last major tournaments that were on before COVID-19 struck our nation. In the coming year, I am hoping to attend the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University in Montreal and earn an MBA. I have no doubt in my mind that wherever my life may take me, I will be ready and able to take on any challenge that is thrown my way and be able to learn an immense amount from it. I am excited to continue doing what I love.
