Montreal native, Megha Sandhu, just recently finished her first year in Health Sciences at Marianopolis College. A real science buff, Megha is always on the lookout for new learning opportunities to better understand the world around her. In high school she participated in Science Fair where she researched the production of biomethane via NCC waste and anaerobic bacteria-earning her gold medal and the McGill University Department of Chemical Engineering Award. In 2011, she worked alongside her mentor at the Meakins-Christie Laboratories of McGill University, where she observed the results of an experiment on asthma, earning her a silver medal at her school’s Science Fair. And there’s more! Enthusiastic about the performing arts, she models, acts and does Indian classical dancing, Bharat Natyam. Passionate for sports, Megha has played on six inter-scholastic teams including; soccer, basketball, cross country, track and field, flag-football and the Halo road race. When not studying, you can find her taking her dog out on long walks in provincial parks and hiking. She also loves traveling; in fact, her favourite place in the world is Versailles, France as she is intrigued by Marie-Antoinette and the French Revolution. Megha has also dedicated her time to various volunteering opportunities and it is her heartfelt desire to promote awareness for special needs children in school environments.
