My name is Samantha Kingerski. I am the youngest of three with two older brothers. I live in a single-parent household; my mom has been my rock through it all. I have a cat named Potato and he is such a goofball, but I love him anyways, even when he’s lazy.
During this last couple of years, I have gone through six surgeries. I have gone through three back surgeries, two wrist surgeries and one neck surgery. I didn’t think I would graduate with my peers, but I pushed myself beyond what I thought I was capable of and passed all of my classes.
I’m a Grade 12 student at Scott Collegiate and have been there since Grade 9. The staff is amazing and has strong community morals. I thank Scott staff for encouraging me to take pride in my work and to have a good community relationship.
Outside of school, I have been part of the Girl Guides of Canada program for 11 years. Since I turned 18 this year, I will be returning as a guider to the program to give back to the next generation of girls, just like my guiders did for me.
Following high school, I have been conditionally accepted to the First Nations University to the Indigenous Social Work program. I am taking this degree because I want to help the future generations to come.
