Alexandra is the daughter of Olena Nikolayevska and Viktor Volodarets, speaks multiple languages, and is a very active New Westminster Secondary IB student where she is part of UNICEF, World Wildlife Fund, Interact and Canadian Cancer Society clubs.  She is also enjoys being part of Leadership and Yearbook and is training to complete her bronze medallion lifesaving certification.   Alexandra volunteers at the SPCA, a local politician’s constituency office and tutors students from Glenbrook Middle School, in her spare time.

 

Alexandra is inspired by Marie Curie because “she was the first woman ever to be awarded the Noble Prize and her research in radioactivity made an incomparable contribution to science that even nowadays, people of various trades are applying to their work.” 


Alexandra’s favourite thing to do in the Royal City, besides the Hyack Festival, is volunteering at the New West Public Library “Reading Buddies” program and other community related events. She also enjoys “hanging out at the Quay in my spare time because it is one of the most beautiful places in New Westminster.”

 

Alexandra’s proudest moment in her life, so far, was when she was accepted as a volunteer in the SPCA because she can help animals in need.  

 

Alexandra would not want to trade places with anyone in the world because, “I want to live as myself and make my own contributions to this world that I hope will one day change the lives of many.


Alexandra believes she would make a good Hyack Ambassador because she is a confident and enthusiastic person who is willing to help others.
