Ultimately, Linda hopes to be able to both practice medicine and conduct medical research. Her most memorable moment from high school was a west coast marine biology trip during which she saw orcas and humpback whales up close. Along with being a National Biology Scholar, Linda is a U of T Scholar and the recipient of a Millennium Scholarship, the Governor General's Award for High School Academic Achievement, and the Alexander Rutherford Scholarship. Last summer, Linda volunteered at the Telus World of Science in Edmonton and will continue her volunteer work this summer at a veterans centre. In her spare time, Linda enjoys running, playing tennis, volleyball, piano and drawing.
