Laura Aguiar

Laura consistently demonstrates the values that France-Anne modeled in her own life. As a natural leader, Laura is active in many aspects of life at her school. She has served on Student Council, is active on a number of sport teams as well as a number of other extra-curricular commitments. She is also focused and committed to her studies. Laura’s personal connection to her charity The Alzheimer’s Foundation for Care Giving in Canada shows her compassion and respect for all life. Through her volunteer experiences at Parkwood Mennonite Nursing home, she has developed special relationships with some of the patients and their families and she realizes that often she takes away more from her experiences than she offers them in return. Laura believes that this donation will help to restore some hope to families and caregivers and help doctors in finding the cause and maybe even prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
