Rebanks Family Loran Scholar – 2019
University of Guelph
Marilyn is the 2020 summer Communications Intern with the One Health Institute.
Marilyn is one of 35 recipients of the prestigious Loran Scholarship. She was a member of the first women’s mountain biking team to represent PEI at the Canada Games. She completed three gold test levels in figure skating and is a volunteer CanSkate coach.
Sheen is looking to pursue her passion for science and hopes to eventually write for National Geographic.
“I love reading National Geographic because I think it’s so cool how science writers are able to share their passion for whatever discipline it is … and whoever is going to read it is going to be passionate too — because the writer is so passionate,” she said. “I think that creates a community of people who are searching for knowledge … and that sort of community of people are the people who change the world. And I really want to be a part of that.”
