Sydnie Krefting plans to volunteer in elementary schools and orphanages in Thailand before she goes to the University of Victoria to pursue a Bachelor of Education degree in the Fall of 2017.
In order to concentrate on her studies, she decided to curtail her involvement in extra curricular activities (hockey and musical theatre) for her last year at Ballenas High School. But she continued working as a junior leader with the RDN and volunteering at Nanoose Elementary School.
She intends to work full time from September to December and then take a four month trip to Thailand to expand her cultural knowledge and begin to develop her teaching skills. Then it’s off to Victoria in the fall with a little help from NCS with her bursary of $1,000.
