Every year, Westhill becomes increasingly diverse and interesting when a new freshman class arrives. While you may be able to recognize a freshman in the hallway, it is likely you know little to nothing about them. The Westword sat down with a few of these fresh faces. One of them is named Cameron Frum.
Cameron is a fourteen year old who comes from Cloonan Middle School. He is the the oldest child in his family and the first to be attending Westhill. He lives with his eight year old brother and his mother.
“My family is very go with the flow. My parents were just recently divorced, but aside from that my childhood was a normal one.” said Frum.
He grew up playing soccer nearly every day, and it now consumes his life. He taught himself how to play before he joined any travel leagues or school teams, and now plays for the freshman boys soccer team. When he’s not playing for the team, he’s usually kicking
a ball in a local park, or playing Fifa on his X-Box.
Playing for Westhill has made his transition into the community a lot easier. One of his goals for this year was to make new friends, and soccer has made that happen. He also hopes to achieve this goal by joining a club next week at the freshman activities fair.
Cameron would also like to get all honors this year at school, and he hopes to excel so he can have a bright future. He is not sure what path he wants to pursue, but he is excited to spend the next four years discovering his interests and talents.
He is taking many challenging courses this year, but his favourite is History with Mr. Stone. When asked if he is passionate about history, he replied
” No, I don’t even like history. I just like Mr. Stone.” In his downtime, Cameron is excited to spend time with new and old friends on the weekends. His favorite thing to do is go out to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings.
So far, his transition to Westhill has been a positive one. He feels safe and welcomed into the environment and is incredibly happy about how open the student body is to different types of people. He is very excited for his future at Westhill.
