Krztian Apostol

Vancouver College

My name is Krztian Apostol, and I am extremely honoured to be the recipient of the #11 Forever Award dedicated to Kristian Domingo. I am proud to be part of the graduating class of 2023 at Vancouver College. For the last 5 years, I have attended VC since grade 8 (2018). During my time at VC, I remember hearing these 2 mottos “Leave Here a Better Man” and “Semper Fidelis”. So I would continuously try and live out to these mottos which had an impact on me. It made me join football all the way till my senior year. With that I was grateful to be part of the 2023 Football Provincial Championship. This football program was not about playing the game of football. But in reality, it has helped shape my life to who I am today. It taught me life lessons of facing adversity, having commitment, passion, faith, dedication and teamwork. But most of all it taught the strong impact of Brotherhood, that knowing that we will have someone who will always be there for you. Football has taught me how to live these mottos in what Kristian has embodied and embraced.

I am thankful to be given this award from Kristian’s Family and everyday I still always continue to live up to Kristian. I would like to thank VC for all the lessons they have taught and the way they have shaped me. Yet, I could not have done this without my friend’s and family’s support and believing in me. I would also like to give thanks to everyone that has supported my family’s battle against cancer; it has truly meant alot to us. Now that I have graduated from VC, I am going to attend Simon Fraser University for Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology Program hoping to become a Physical Therapist. I still have many goals in life, but my main priority is to ensure that everyone knows that anything is possible.
