Branden Aitken Shodan-ho 2018
My name is Branden Aitken.
I was born on August 24, 2001 in the Victoria General Hospital. I have lived the majority of my life in Nanaimo. I started doing karate when I was 9 years old on the very first day of third grade. A few friends got me started, they joined, and then I soon followed. I am now 16 and starting grade 12 at Dover Bay Secondary.
Through thick and thin I have stuck with karate. I had some ups and downs throughout my journey, but here I am. I wish to continue training as long as I can. I enjoy it very much and it is a good stress reliever.
My favorite thing about the dojo is how it never disappoints when you need to be cheered up.
After High School I aspire to be a pharmacist.
It will be challenging, but this proves that if you try hard enough at anything and do whatever it takes you will eventually succeed.
