Catherine Blouin is incredibly grateful to have received the Kristian Domingo #11 Forever Award. She believes that it is an honour to have been chosen to represent Kristian’s courage, perseverance, and faith. Kristian’s story is one of hope and love that will continue to inspire Catherine to pursue her goals, all the while caring for those in her community.
Catherine believes that by having a positive and kind outlook on life, one can achieve anything. She follows this mission by volunteering for Geering Up! as a junior instructor. This summer she volunteered as part of the few who were asked to volunteer at in-person camps. Geering Up! is a non-profit organisation that strives to provide STEM opportunities to youth across BC irrespective of socio-economic status, race, or gender. Catherine wants to inspire young women to pursue a career in the STEM fields as women are underrepresented in these fields. Catherine’s leadership and active involvement in her school community have been recognized through being offered the Student of the Year award in grade eight, and the Vincent T. Wong Scholarship in grade nine. She is also part of the Youth in Action Club. In this club she has made sandwiches, which were then distributed to people in need, and organised food, clothing and toiletry donations made by LFA students. Catherine is also an avid field hockey player, being part of the Senior A field hockey team since she was in grade ten. This year, Catherine is an LFA Prefect, and she cannot wait to plan activities, lead assemblies, and help in her homeroom throughout the 2020-2021 school year.
