Scott Collegiate

My name is Victoria Gabriel, and I am an Advanced Placement (AP) student at Scott Collegiate. I am the first in my family to receive this award, and I am happy to say that I have done everything that I need to do to graduate high school and go to university and pursue my dream career as a musical performer.

Most of my after-school time consists of working with elementary school kids in the Growing Young Movers program, which I am a mentor for. Getting to help teach the future generation is something I take pride in doing whenever I can. I’ve done javelin every year of high school for track and field and it’s one of my favourite sports to do; it’s one of my passions and I look forward to doing it every year.

My biggest passion in life is music. Whenever I play my trumpet, I’m the happiest I can be. Performing in front of people brings me so much joy, I can’t even begin to describe it. I will be attending the University of Regina for music performance and possibly music education later on. I knew ever since the eighth grade that I wanted to be a musician when I grew up, and I’m happy to say that my dream has not changed since. Music has helped me so much in life and I just want to be able to bring other people the same joy that I get with music.
