Sasha Joseph Qureshi
Sasha believes that the most
advantageous trait to help complete
post-secondary learning is mental
discipline and a daily plan. To achieve
success, his plan is to balance work,
school, study, leisure pursuits and
health. Sasha will be putting 100% of his effort into studies
when the need arises.
He is still working on his life goals and wants to be
someone who controls his own destiny. Becoming an
engineer would bring him closer to that goal. He wants to
follow in the footsteps of great engineers like Nicola Tesla
and Alexander Graham Bell.
He hopes to help fellow Canadians, especially those in
our communities. Sasha has volunteered with multiple
organizations in his town. He worked with the Interact
Club at school and with the Salvation Army, organizing
clothes for people in need. He volunteered at his town's
public market and demonstrated how to cook healthy
meals. Another organization he is proud to be part of is
Grandmothers and Grandothers, which provides relief for
African grandmothers taking care of their grandchildren
who have lost their parents to AIDS.

Conor has lived in Keremeos his entire
