Simrit Sandhu

VSB (Sir Charles Tupper Secondary)

Simrit Sandhu recently graduated from Sir Charles Tupper Secondary School. At age 11, Simrit was diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune condition which impacted her overall body and wellness significantly. While struggling with a severe health condition, Simrit persevered through high school and her extracurricular activities. Through these activities, Simrit highlighted humbleness.

She gave back to her community by being president of the Best Buddies Organization and community youth councils, she was an active volunteer at BC Children's Hospital and with her sports teams, and acted as a mentor to BIPOC children through the City of Vancouver's Youth Engagement Committees. Further, she is known as a studious young person who likes to share her knowledge through tutoring a variety of students.

Above all, Simrit is grateful for receiving the Kristian Domingo #11 forever award. She will be attending the University of Victoria to pursue a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Simrit is looking forward to becoming a nurse, and helping children in a similar position as herself.
