Ross Sheppard High School
Mini Bio: 
Dominique, who advises students that "to preserve your mental health, there must be a balance between work and fun," has fond memories of racing pogo sticks with her music teacher down the hallway of Ross Sheppard High School in Edmonton. Another piece of advice for fellow students is "don't procrastinate!" Dominique, 18, is living in residence at New College and taking courses in biology, chemistry, psychology, and calculus, and a small-group seminar course in the humanities. Dominique's goals are to pursue a specialist program in physiology, attend medical school, and become an emergency room physician, to combine her passion for science with her love of people. The black belt in taekwondo, who says that "If I could marry a science, it would be biology," enjoys classical piano, rollerblading, and playing jazz on her trumpet.
