My name is Madison Ciulla and currently I am in grade 12 at Dr. Charles Best Secondary. This is my second year in Social Responsibility/Butterfly Effect. I joined in grade 10, and after missing the amazing opportunities I was involved in, I wanted to re-join for my grade 12 year!
Something you may not know about me is that I love playing soccer. In fact, I’ve been playing the sport since I was 4 years old. I honestly do not know what my life would look like today if I wasn’t playing soccer. It has become part my daily routine. Over the years my hard work and practice allowed me to make it onto a high performance team, however, after 2 years on the team, I decided to step down and focus on my school work. Currently I play for a Metro-Select team with Coquitlam Metro Ford.
In my free time, other activities I love to do include skiing, reading, and walking my dog Zoey. I am super excited for the ski season this year and can’t wait to hit the slopes! When I read, I become super attached to the stories and fictional worlds I learn about in many novels, and I tend to become immersed in these worlds! My favourite genres are fantasy and science fiction. Walking my dog has always brought me so much joy. This is the main way I calm myself down when I’m feeling stressed. It is a great way to relieve any anxiousness I am feeling the night before a test or even if I am super busy and need a chance to relax. Plus, I love my dog Zoey dearly, and she is the best little companion.
What brought me to Butterfly Effect was the chance to discover my own passions through the self-directed inquiry projects I was able to do. It was actually through this course that I found my love for science, after I got the chance to learn about the biodiversity of Joshua Tree National Park, and the ways in which we can live a healthy life style.
This year I will be focussing on the new action side of the course, and I am super excited to share my journey in performing this action with all of you! Stay tuned for my action project plan!
Thanks for reading!!
