Introducing Tylana Brown-John

In conversation with members of the Class of 2014.

Tylanna Brown-John

Tylana Brown-John is looking forward to getting a full-time job after school. “I am going to get a job during the summer and figure out what my plans are from there,” she told BCSS career councillor Pam Storie during her grad exit interview.

Although Tylana has only attended Grade 12 at BCSS for the past few months (she came over from Kelowna), she has divided her time between the Boundary and the Okanagan for years and has lots of friends here—many through her participation in the Borderline 4-H Club.

She credits the 4-H “Learn To Do By Doing” motto with helping her acquire skills such as how to work with a team to run lunch concessions to raise funds.

It’s clear how much Tylana enjoyed 4-H from the fact that she travelled from the Okanagan to participate in the club over the years.

She has been a 4-H member from 2010 to present and has served as club reporter—filing updates to the Boundary Creek Times.

Tylana lists two local jobs on her resume: the Haskap Berry Farm in Midway and the Kettle River RV Park.

She’s tasted Europe, having flown over with her family for five days in Barcelona followed by a Mediterranean cruise.

She named her hobbies and interests as dance, 4-H and her sheep. Her love of animals was obvious from the way her eyes softened when asked if she has any pets at home—the answer was six cats and a dog.

You can recognize Tylana in the judging ring at the fair—she’s the one with the belt embossed with “Sheep Girl” across the back.

The quote she chose for the exit interview was by Jimmy Hendrix: “I am the one who has got to die when it is time for me to die. So let me live my life the way I want to
