Hi, I’m Tara Doherty. I’m 17 and from Burlington, Ontario in Canada. I am currently in the I.B. program. My favorite subjects are science and math. I particularly enjoy chemistry and ecology as I like the underlying logic of both subjects. I am a fairly active person. I do competitive orienteering as well as house league soccer. I have been playing soccer for 5 years, and I’ve been doing orienteering for 3. This past year, I won a provincial championship in orienteering. I’ve been a soccer referee for 4 years and I just started refereeing rep and competitive games. Last year I was fortunate enough to learn how to SCUBA dive. I also love exploring parks and discovering new things, such as caves or paddling along rivers or lakes and enjoy being outside and active. I also enjoy braiding, reading, and traveling and experiencing different cultures.
