Hi, my name is Hayleigh McGrath and I am from Branch, St .Mary’s Bay Newfoundland and Labrador. I am 15 years old, and a grade ten honours student at Fatima Academy with an overall average of 86%. My school ranges from kindergarten to grade twelve, with a total of 87 students. I am currently vice president of our school council, a member of our schools dance group,Fatima Academy Accordion Group and an avid volunteer.
One of my favorite things to do is entertain. Since I was baby my family knew I would be a singer. As my mother would rock me to sleep I would hum very loudly until I would finally doze off. My Grams would say ” that girl will be a star!” When I was nine years old I started singing in public events ;but only after a few concerts I had an incident. I was ready to perform at one of our local concerts, and when the curtains opened there was technical difficulties with my music. I waited on stage for what seemed like an eternity, all eyes were on me. Finally when my music started I was too nervous to sing, in my rush to exit the stage I knocked over the microphone and fell off the stage. This experience made me shake upon the mere mention of singing again, but with the encouragement of my family and friends I was back on stage in no time!

I couldn’t be more proud representing a rural fishing community, with only 247 residents. We may not have the benefits of cell phone service or high speed internet, but what we lack in modern technology we make up for in our kinship. Branch is a special community like no other, we have a connection with our Irish heritage that is evident in our daily lives.
Every day there are numerous opportunities to partake in. My Community Life and my involvement have shaped my personality greatly. I enjoy every minute of it, from serving meals at the community kitchen, to leading a meeting of our youth advisory or singing an old song for a senior. These experiences have shaped me into who I am and I am thrilled to get to share my experiences with you all.
