Janine Williams Memorial Scholarship


In Memory of Janine Anne Alicia Williams

About


Janine Anne Alicia Williams was a fun, bright, caring young woman, who was sadly taken from us at the age of 24.
Janine was an accomplished ballerina, musician and athlete.
Her family has created this scholarship to keep the memory of their daughter, sister and friend alive with the hope that a little bit of the joy that Janine brought to their lives can be shared.

"I believe a substantial change can be brought about by collection of simultaneous small
changes; To create a massive change in a society we have to start with individuals. As an
individual who was accepted with open arms to be a part of Canadian society, I am
determined to better this society by actively pursuing my goal of becoming a dentist and
encouraging females to follow their passions fearlessly."
