“Making the Most of My Summer” By: Tife Ademidun

My name is Tife Ademidun and I am a grade twelve student at Bishop Reding. I enjoy involving myself in various programs and initiatives in my school as well as my local community. This summer I had the privilege of participating in the Women in Engineering Summer Research and Mentorship program at the Lassonde school of Engineering. This program offered seventy grade eleven female students a job working in an engineering research lab at York University. As a result of my expressed interests, I was placed in a biomedical devices lab where I worked with biopotential telemetry devices such as electrocardiograms, electroencephalograms and electromyograms alongside a university professor and various graduate students. I also spent much of my time at York outside of the labs. When I was not conducting research, I was touring the campus, participating in workshops, listening to guest speakers or grabbing lunch with my lab mates. By the end of the summer I had not only enriched my understanding of engineering, but consequently developed various skills, made countless friends and created memories that will last a lifetime.
