We've been checking in with some of our 2019 Grads to highlight their post-secondary journeys. This week, we're catching up with Jaeda Yurkiw. We have to say, Jaeda is one busy woman! Currently enrolled at the University of British Columbia Okanagan where she is studying sciences (she plans on attending Medical School and then specializing in Dermatology), Jaeda is also an accomplished volleyball player (she was our Grade 12 co-MVP last year) and is playing on the UBC Okanagan Heat Women's volleyball team as well as training for beach volleyball season (she hopes to play professionally this summer). Read more about Jaeda's time at Aberdeen Hall and her first month at university.

There is nothing more compelling than an excellent public speech. Over the course of the last two weeks, every student from Kindergarten to Grade 12 has prepared and presented a public speech, and I have had the distinct pleasure of observing many of them. Speaking in front of a crowd is not easy, and is listed as one of the greatest stressors for a significant percentage of the population. However, we know one thing to be true: the more you practice, the better you get. As is the case with any skill set, the keys to improvement are repetition and coaching.
