Wpg Free Press: U of M student athlete and volunteer featured
The Nov. 24 edition of the Winnipeg Free Press featured U of M student athlete Kristjana Peterson’s volunteer activities, including her involvement with CanU, an after-school program for kids.
The question is a cliché, but when you speak with someone like Kristjana Peterson, you can’t help but ask it: When do you find time to sleep?
Peterson is a full-time student at the University of Manitoba, where she is in her fourth year studying toward a bachelor of arts degree in psychology.
The 21-year-old is also an accomplished high jumper on the Bisons track-and-field team, a commitment that typically requires training eight times a week. She also works part-time teaching gymnastics classes at a children’s fitness centre in St. Vital.
To top it all off, Peterson volunteers with CanU, an after-school program for children in grades 5 to 7. She co-ordinates CanU’s track-and-field component.
