Anaïs O.

What will you miss most about Marymount?

The boarding community and our weekly cooking nights (from Wednesday night dumplings to Saturday night pancakes!), as well as our (very loud and exciting) game nights, like Just Dance battles.

What is your funniest/favourite memory from Marymount?

THIMUN! (And literally any other school trip I had the chance to go on) as well as the weekends we all spent studying in the DP lounge and going crazy over IB stress (with pizza of course).

What is your favourite Marymount tradition?

The 100 Days Dinner and of course Graduation! I have enjoyed observing and taking part in the graduation ceremonies in the past 3 years and it is such a beautiful tradition, which sadly we do not get to experience.

Where is your favourite place on campus?

The boarding halls and lounge! And probably main house in general.

Which university do you plan to attend/what subject will you be pursuing after leaving Marymount?

The University of Toronto. I’ll be pursuing studies in life sciences and I’m planning to double major in molecular biology & biotechnology and immunology. I am on the pre-med track.

What are you most looking forward to about university?

Living in a new country, experiencing a more independent life, and getting a lot of new opportunities and new interests.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully I’ll have completed medical school and I’ll be contributing to global health development in some way. Or I’ll simply be on my way to a new exciting adventure in an exotic country!

What advice do you have for younger students as they move forward in their Marymount experience?

Always try to be kind and don’t be afraid to fight for what you believe in and what you want within the school!

Anything else you’d like to add?

Ms Chou, please send me all your recipes. I won’t survive university without your dumplings.
