In 1997 at the age of 17, Carla Rosario left her home in Peru and joined her father in Canada to pursue her education. Despite the challenges and stresses of her new life, Carla’s positive spirit and determination have prevailed. This attitude is demonstrated by her academic accomplishments and her community involvement.
Her record of academic excellence has not only been demonstrated by her quick mastery of the English language, but is also apparent in almost every area of her studies. She has received numerous awards, most notably in Biology and Mathematics.
Carla’s commitment to excelling academically is balanced by her commitment to social and community causes. She spearheaded a campaign to assist victims of Hurricane Mitch that earned her school public recognition by the Canadian Red Cross Society. She is also an active volunteer at Toronto’s North York General Hospital.
