Hadeel Shweiki is a grade 11 student attending Sir Frederick Banting Secondary School. She grew up in Palestine and came to Canada in the year of 2012 at the age of 9. It was a challenge for her to come to Canada at a young age without knowing the English language very well. She decided to join the HEALYAC because she found that it would be a great opportunity to build on her confidence and learn new things. Some extracurricular activities she enjoys are basketball, karate, knitting, and running!
