Betty — Toronto, ON

bettyBetty has been involved with DAREarts since the fifth grade. She sang in the DAREarts Youth Choir and in 2001 performed at the 100th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway. Since her graduation from DAREarts, she has earned the DAREarts Leadership Award for her dedication to the local and global community.

Betty is currently attending Queen's University pursuing a degree in Medicine. She has previously completed an Honours Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and a Masters in Management of Innovation at the University of Toronto. She has also been involved with research at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the Hospital for Sick Children, evaluating treatment outcomes for children with behavioral disorders.

Betty has held many positions in her school and community, such as being on the New College Student Council, New College Orientation Committee, and LetsStopAIDS Youth-run Charity. She has also been involved in the organization and implementation of annual fundraising events for the Yee Hong Geriatric Foundation, raising over $1 million annually for seniors across the GTA. In 2011, after seven years with Yee Hong, she was nominated for the Ontario Volunteer Service Award given by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration.

Betty feels that in the YAC, she will be able to utilize her knowledge in business to provide specific and actionable ideas, which will help bring DAREarts forward and make changes that can have a greater impact on society.
