Hello! My name is Puneet Bains and I am in grade 12 currently attending Queen Elizabeth Secondary School in Surrey, BC.
My family immigrated to Canada from India when I was five, and since then Surrey has been my home. In contrast, my family consists of 5 people: mom, dad, younger sister and brother. Being the oldest sibling comes with loads of responsibilities, as I am a role model and must set a good example for my siblings. Additionally, my family is my main support structure, they are always encouraging me and let me try new things. Due to this I am able to participate in all sorts of activities, both in and outside of school.
Now a little about myself, I love playing sports and have been part of many school sports teams. I enjoy listening to music as it helps me distress whenever I feel overwhelmed. Cooking is also a skill I consist along with a very clean and organized individual. Additionally, I feel privileged that we have the opportunity to attend school and receive education; hence, I deeply value having the chance to education and love school. My favorite subject is social studies because I find our world and its history quite fascinating. With the help of my volunteer experiences and education I have received, I would like to make a change in this world and assist the people in need of any help.
It is my first year being part of the PA-MOJA club and I am thoroughly excited! I am looking forward to meeting new people and discovered what importance community service holds for them. Moreover, being a member of this club will give me the opportunity to compare and contrast between education opportunities and conditions children have to learn in. At last, I am hoping to assist in making the world a better place where education is prioritized; I look forward to seeing what my team and I can do to make a difference in Kenya!
