There are quite a few things that I’m proud of in my educational experience. That could include projects, results on tests and even just participating in class but what I think I’ll hold on to for forever is my ability to become very passionate. I’ve been through a lot of phases where I’m super interested in something and I’ll completely indulge in it. I’ll put all of my energy into it and find satisfaction in having knowledge about it.
A good example of this would be that in grade 7, we started learning about the human body in science class. I should probably mention that I started watching Grey’s Anatomy a couple months prior but I didn’t like biology or the human anatomy. I thought the entire concept of medicine was bloody and gross. When we first started learning about the digestive system, I fell in love. I became very ambitious and decided that I was going to master this biology unit. I went home and started researching. I remember spending entire weekends on WebMd. For school we had to memorize a simple chart of the digestive system and when I was called up to write something down, I just kept going and going until the chart was filled with unheard of body parts. It was the best feeling ever because I felt like I was good at something. That taught me how much I love being ambitious. Unfortunately, I haven’t been as interested in a school topic since then but I’ve still educated myself in some other subjects like geography, travel, conspiracy theories and astrology.
Overall, school has taught me how to analyse different things so that I can form my own opinion that may differ from everybody else’s. It taught me to be skeptical as well as passionate. I’m proud of my entire educational experience because I became an independent thinker.
Thank you very much,

I am very happy to read your post.I also am taking Biology and it is a very good subject to study .This is because it teaches us more about ourselves.Continue working hard until you fulfill your dreams.

I enjoyed reading your post very much. Although I am not studying Biology you have made me to desire to learn more about human body.
I hope you still desire to learn more.I believe that one day your effort will pay very well.Keep up that spirit!

that great Elisabet its amazing to hear that you are really interested about digestive system. I also like studying anatomy especially in the topic of reproductive system.I studied this topic when i was in grade 11.its really a good and interesting topic.
keep up the spirit liza!!

I really enjoyed reading your post! It’s evident how passionate you were on this project. Furthermore, it’s awesome to read how school has helped shape you into an “independent thinker”.
I would definitely recommend you to take Anatomy and Physiology 12. The course does center on our body systems, similar to what you’ve learned in grade 7 science. I took this course in grade 11, and I’m peer-tutoring it this year! Ms. Stuart and Ms. Martin both make it a super intriguing topic to learn. Consequently, it’s a really engaging course. By taking this Anatomy and Physiology, you would hopefully be able to revisit that “ambitious sentiment”!

Thank you so much for letting me know that there’s an anatomy and physiology class at Best because I was not aware of that.

No problem! It’s great how you’re aware of this course now. Although this isn’t necessarily a prerequisite, Life Sciences 11 would also be an awesome course for you to take. When I took it, Life Sciences 11 was called Biology 11, and Anatomy and Physiology 12 was called Biology 12. The names have all changed now which can be confusing!
Life Sciences 11 goes over viruses, taxonomic principles for classifying organisms, etc. You can read more about it here: https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/curriculum/science/11/life-sciences .
Are you planning on taking other to STEM related subjects in the future?
