Kate GilesHigh School Student - Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board
Kate's Story :
My name is Kate Giles and I’m a high school student currently attending Thomas A Stewart Secondary School in Peterborough.
I’m passionate about the arts and I’m a Visual Arts student in the IA Program at TAS. I’m extremely grateful that I get to attend a school where I can work creatively to produce work that I’m proud of.
I’m additionally passionate about team sports, especially hockey, which I’ve been playing since I was six. I currently play on a house league and DS team with the PGHA. I enjoy the sport because it gives me confidence and allows me to push myself as an athlete as well as make friends with girls in my community.
I have a part time job at the BulkBarn on Lansdowne Street. I’ve been working there since October 2018, and I’ve gained and continue to develop work place skills including working a cash register and interacting with customers.
In the future, I would like to pursue a career in architecture in hopes that I will be able to work somewhere that allows me to design and see through the the construction of sustainable housing. As a young woman, I’m still developing my skills and sense of self, and I’m so excited to grow and continue my pursuit of knowledge.
