May 2013's Featured Student!
I am taking French courses in grade 11 at Danforth Collegiate. I have a very good average and I play sports like soccer, ping pong, football, and badminton. I speak French, English, Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi.
I volunteer in a hospital, at a library, at a mosque and even in a church. I want to be a humanitarian, a doctor and an entrepreneur, but most importantly I want to be a good person. I use my intelligence well and I work very hard.
I have created a charitable organization, “Al-Habib Care” to help improve the lives of impoverished children. We will educate them, and provide them with food and clothing. I could have given money to UNICEF, but I wanted to be more active in my approach and help them myself. This summer, I am going to Shad Valley, but I will continue to work on improving my leadership qualities!Name

by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Favourite way to practice French:
I like speaking French because it’s a great way to communicate. Lots of people can write well in French, but I find that it’s a bigger challenge to share my ideas orally. To improve my French, I try to read books out loud, because it’s a great way to practice the correct pronunciation. Why do you think it is important to learn French?
It’s important to learn French because it’s a big part of Canadian history, and also because it can open a lot of doors in life. With French, we can have a greater variety of work opportunities in the future. Also, learning French can help the brain develop and increase communication skills. And that’s not all! With French we can explore the world and make lots of Francophone friends!
My best experience "en français"
: When I went to the United States and taught French to my cousins. But in general, I think French is fun, especially when I can interpret directions and new French words.In my opinion, the coolest francophone country is:
Canada!How I will use my French skills in the future
: In the future, I will use my French skills to educate my community, to make Canada and my parents proud. I will work in Quebec and I will open a bilingual centre where Canadian citizens can connect and create a positive environment.A place I would like to go
