Introducing Daniela Bergendahl

In conversation with members of the Class of 2015.

Daniela Bergendahl

Daniela Bergendahl has applied to UBC Okanagan to study for a Bachelor of Science. She loves building models and she’d eventually like to attain a masters degree in architecture, environmental design specifically.

She says she has matured while at BCSS. “When I was younger I didn’t think much about my schooling and university.”

Longer-term goals she’s set for herself include travel to a place where she could work on her French language skills, and pursuing opportunities to work in the mission field—something she’s picked up from her family who have travelled to both Mexico and Europe doing service for others and the church.

Daniela has excelled both academically and athletically while at BCSS. She has been on the Principal’s Honour Roll (4.0 GPA) since Grade 8. Her extra-curricular activities include school sports (volleyball, basketball and soccer), BCSS Spirit Club and student council where she is serving as vice-president this year.

She has been captain of the volleyball and soccer teams, and has been recognized as team MVP several times. She is an accomplished piano player and has helped lead music at Boundary Community Church in Midway since Grade 9. She also volunteers with her church to organize youth sports nights.

She has applied for a position at Pines Bible Camp for the summer but she’s also taken the Fire Suppression 12 course, so summer employment in that field is another option.

Daniela admits she may discover other options as she goes through university, but her underlying motivation is evident. As she wrote in her exit interview documents, “I love to learn and hope to use the skills that I gain to help others in my community and around the world.”
