Grade 12 student Aditi Rajnish from Bishop Reding Catholic Secondary School received four-year scholarship offers from prestigious North American universities as a result of her academic accomplishments and volunteerism in the Halton community!

Aditi’s offers include a $100,000 Schulich Leader Engineering Scholarship from Western University and a Mathematics National Scholarship from the University of Waterloo.

Aditi works at e2 Young Engineers, an after-school learning program that introduces children to knowledge in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Aditi is a lead teacher in the program, delivering hands-on programming and robotics workshops in English and French. Through this program, Aditi has made complex concepts such as machine learning and human-computer interaction easily understandable for elementary French-speaking students. 

Aditi launched Foundations, a program that provides free math tutoring for students. She is also the Director of Bishop Reding’s STEM Team and volunteered as a finance trainer for her school’s Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) program. 

On top of her academic accomplishments, Aditi has dedicated 350 hours to her community through volunteering for the Milton Youth Task Force and Milton Public Library’s Teen Advisory Group.

This fall, Aditi will be attending the University of Waterloo for Software Engineering. 

“I’m thrilled to be studying Software Engineering at Waterloo, where I aspire to lead a start-up that leverages artificial intelligence for social good,” says Aditi. “I’ll always be thankful to the Bishop Reding community and I look forward to my next adventure!”

Congratulations, Aditi, on this incredible achievement! We wish you the best of luck in your post-secondary studies!
