Originally from the Philippines, Ashlee and her sister moved to Canada in 2011 to join her mom who was already living here. Her English, which she taught herself, is flawless! She is heading to a high school next week with her friend Vanessa. She has a big interest in drawing and animation and is thinking it might be something to consider after high school.
Born in Toronto, 13 year old Vanessa is going into Grade 9 too with her friend Ashlee. She is not exactly looking forward to it – after all, she is having too much fun this summer! Vanessa loves to play soccer and sing. "She's really good," says Ashlee to the shy laughter of Vanessa who is inspired by Taylor Swift.
