Thom Collegiate

Bonjour. My name is Tyana Ross, and I was born in Lethbridge, AB. I moved within three different provinces to seven cities and ten houses. Eventually, I settled in Regina and became a devoted French Immersion student at Thom Collegiate. I am passionate about the French language and culture, and I had the experience of a lifetime this summer when I worked as a camp counsellor in Chambly, Québec! I made lifelong friends and unforgettable memories.

This experience convinced me that becoming a French Immersion teacher was the perfect career for me. I have been accepted into The Baccalauréat Program at the University of Regina. I look forward to teaching at a French Immersion elementary school and sharing the joys of being fluent in more than one language.

I am also very involved in extracurricular activities. When I was seven years old, I begged my mom to allow me to start playing the violin and two years later, my wish was granted! I take lessons weekly and play regularly at my church. Last year, I was a member of a string trio with one of my favourite teachers and two friends, who also play the violin and cello! This year, the choir asked me to be their violinist accompaniment at the winter concert.

I strive to continue having a positive impact on the people around me. I look forward to graduating, and I hope to continue accomplishing my dreams and spread even more kindness!
