“Math is a good summer pastime and I want to get better at it. I tried out for the Canadian Math Team because I wanted to test myself and see how hard it would be. I was excited for the chance to be part of a team and specially to go to California. I was really proud when I found out I made the team. I want to thank my mom, dad and my Aunt Jenny for supporting and encouraging me. 

I feel a little more stressed now that training has started because I am worried that I might not be good enough for the competition. The math practice I have been doing every day is making me feel a little more confident. I enjoyed the Math training in Toronto and spending some time with my dad seeing the sights, including the CN Tower. I am excited to work with the 6 teammates I have already met, and I am looking forward to meeting the other 5 members. I can’t believe the competition is coming so soon! "
