Linden Graduates Making a Difference:

Kyrie Vala-Webb, Class of 2008

“I attended Linden from grades 4 to 12, and after graduating, attended the University of Waterloo for an entirely new interdisciplinary program called Knowledge Integration. This program allowed me to tap into my interests in both the sciences and the arts, including computer science, history, calculus and economics.

Linden’s teachers challenged me to be a strong, self-motivated student, to have confidence in myself, to take risks, and to see myself as responsible to the world around me. These lessons prepared me to excel in my post secondary education, and have provided a solid foundation for my life.

My academic life was challenging and stimulating; I constantly met new people and nurtured old friendships; and I was heavily involved in student government and women’s activism groups on campus. After speaking up in class, I was asked to help change Waterloo’s computer studies curriculum to better address the needs of female students. I strongly believe that I took advantage of the amazing opportunities in my university because of my time at Linden.”

Sarah Shteir, Class of 1998

“I joined Linden in 1993, as a grade 9 student and founding daughter. I felt at home almost immediately. The sense of community, the small classes, and the approachable and intimate teaching style all helped make my five years of high school precious, invigorating, and challenging. The strong focus at Linden on teaching histories and perspectives that are normally marginalized encouraged my interest in, and knowledge of, histories of colonization and imperialism, women’s histories, and women’s rights. Linden helped nurture my self-confidence and passion for women’s rights and engagement in the wider world, and these remain with me to this day.

After graduating from Linden, I completed my Bachelors at McGill University and my Master’s at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Since then, I have been working for the Australian government’s Asia Pacific Civil-Military Centre of Excellence in Canberra. There, I am involved in research on a wide range of issues, including protection of civilians, with a focus on women, UN peacekeeping and Australia’s role in conflict and disaster response.”
