Lakha, who tied for ninth (of 5,278 contestants) in the 1998 biology competition, plans on a career in medicine, and "can't remember ever wanting to do anything else." The award winner in biology, chemistry, physics, and math graduated from Archbishop Denis O'Connor Catholic High School and is a "huge fan" of figure skating. Lakha, 19, is pursuing a bachelor's degree in biochemistry at the University of Toronto at Scarborough. She offers this thoughtful advice to high school students: "have goals and be motivated to achieve these goals - once you are motivated, you will find ways to achieve success."
