Our 2018 WMO Team members told us how they felt before competing about representing Canada in the WMO Global Finals in Stanford University, California on August 11, 2018.
Alexander M. - Level 2 - Bronze Medalist from Burlington, Ontario
“I am 12 years old, and a proud member of team Canada at the 2018 WMO event. I have greatly enjoyed math my entire life and that’s what led me to this competition. I started going to Spirit of Math when I was in kindergarten and have been with Spirit of Math from Grade 1 to Grade 7 but I will be leaving next year due to a change of schools.
I wanted to represent team Canada at the 2018 WMO event because I thought it would be an experience of a lifetime that I couldn’t miss.
With my love for math, it was an opportunity impossible to resist. I feel like studied my whole life for this. Now that Week 2 of training has started, I feel that I am definitely prepared to compete in the event and might even win an award! I’m not that sure for the team games though. We’ll need to improve on those before the event.
Being a part of team Canada at the 2018 WMO event in an event I am definitely looking forward to and one I will never forget"
