Last year’s $1500 recipient, Chloe Ann Gavel, has a passion for working hard and striving to achieve results. With a dedication to her hobby of weightlifting, Chloe has found a discipline that supports her mental health and wellness. Her goal is to pursue an education in nursing to support and educate others in finding similar roads to enhance their health.
She says, “I am confident that nursing is the correct path for me. I know challenges will arise, but every day will be different. … I want to be able to help people.” With the help of the Sowerby Student Award, Chloe attended Dalhousie University this past year, completing the first step towards her goal of becoming a nurse.
