Brontë Mutukistna knew she wanted to study architecture, but was the University of Toronto program focused enough on design? Contacting some Old Girls from Havergal gave her the information she needed. “I tapped into the community and they were so helpful,” says Mutukistna. She was a quintessential team player when she took the ice with the Havergal Hockey team by focusing on passing, not just scoring. “I really like to share the puck.” As Team Captain in her senior year, she led the girls to winning the Hewitt Cup. Academically, she combines the sciences with the visual arts, where she enjoys working with her hands. Mutukistna’s final art installation was a grenade shaped like a peanut, which represents what it’s like to live with a peanut allergy.

“Havergal is all about community. So many people here helped me discover my passions and my interests,” says Angelina Pan. No wonder she chose to study at the California Institute of Technology, with just 230 students in the program and a 3:1 student-faculty ratio. “It’s a small school, with a really close-knit community. I’m able to focus on researching and exploring science.” While at Havergal, she swam for the Swim team, earning Athlete of the Year and 10 Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) medals: eight gold and two silver. She played piano in the Chamber Orchestra, was co-head of the Math Club and was the editor of the athletic newsletter, Gator Zone . Pan is a National AP Scholar, earned Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s International Awards, is part of the Canadian National Math League Honour Roll and is the recipient of the Governor General’s Academic Medal of Highest General Proficiency. Pan hopes to keep up her exploration of the arts and humanities—she believes it makes her more well-rounded and informs her creative thinking in math and science.
