Jamie, a grade 11 student, has been described as a caring young woman who has maturity, patience and empathy for young children. She has worked as a program assistant with the Kitchener-Waterloo Skating Club since 2007 and is eager and hard working. Jamie has been awarded the KWSC 2011 Program Assistant of the year. Her dedication to young children is perhaps why she is so drawn to her favourite charity, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada. Jamie is very aware of the amazing things that they are able to do for children and their families facing life threatening illnesses. More importantly, she understands the hope and mental healing that these wishes can provide to the children and their families by helping them to make positive memories. She is happy to be able to support this charity with her winning donation.
