Questions with a Graduate

What is your name, age, school, and what community are you from?
My name is Levi Denny Jr. I am aged 18, I go to Allison Bernard Memorial High School in Eskasoni and I am in graduating in a few weeks!

What clubs, teams, or groups are you involved in at school, and after-school?
I was involved in the High School’s baseball, volleyball, golf and soccer teams. I was also involved with the school’s Show Me Your Math group that did a survey project and presented it at the Show Me Your Math meet. Outside of school I played major midget hockey for the past three years with the Cape Breton West Islanders and I also play softball.

What’s your favourite subject in school?
My favourite subject in school is math. My favourite class I have ever taken is Calculus. 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why?
I would like to go up North. My favourite time of year is winter and I love the snow. It would be interesting to see what it is like in extreme cold weather and maybe see some polar bears or the northern lights.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 
I spend most of my spare time in the gym working out or playing sports. But if I am not doing that I like to unwind and just relax watching hockey of baseball on TV or hanging out with my friends.

What are your plans for when you graduate, and why? What do you see yourself doing ten years from now?
My plans for next year is play junior hockey and continue my education by going to university. In ten years I see myself as a successful engineer making a lot of money. 

Do you have a role model? If so, who? And why?
My role models are definitely my parents. They are very successful because they work really hard and set a great example for their children as well as other people. Not only do they work really hard, but they are also great people. 

What is your best memory from your high school years? 
My best memory from high school was when I was in grade 10 and we had a safe grad after prom. I saw one of my best friends get hypnotized and he was doing stuff he wouldn’t normally do which was hilarious. He doesn’t remember what he was doing while he was hypnotized. 

What is the best thing about your school?
The best thing about my school is the relationships between students and teachers. I think every student gets along with all the teachers and the teachers care for their students. They want to see them succeed, which students recognize and respect their teachers because they know they will always be there to help. Even if you just need someone to talk to, the teachers will be there to listen. 

Who has made an impact on you?
I think a lot of people have made an impact on me, giving me a little advice and wisdom, which helped me to grow into the person I am today. If I were to name a few, it would be my parents and my two sisters.

Is there something you’d like to see in your school or community that isn’t there now?
I would like to see a multi-purpose field with a nice track around it. I know football is big in Eskasoni with the young kids who are just getting into it and lacrosse is coming around and the high school has a soccer team now but they the field isn’t nice enough to host home games in Eskasoni.  Also a nice track would be great for people who want to run and train there, kind of like a setup like at CBU.

Words of advice, a personal favorite quote, or a thank-you?
A quote that is my motto is; “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
