My name is Valentina Shickell-Busch. I live on beautiful Rainy Lake with my amazing parents, Karen Shickell and Mike Busch. I am 15 years old, and going into grade 11 this fall. I’m exploring my interests in various medical fields, and also the manufacturing trades. I enjoy playing sports and being in nature. Whether I’m out on the lake with my dad or just going for a walk in the woods, I feel fortunate to have these opportunities available on my doorstep. I’d like to thank John Gavel Manufacturing, Ltd. for sponsoring me in my Emo Fair Queen journey! I’m looking forward to the rest of our community activities this summer. The girls in our group are so great! It will be fun getting to know each one a little better than I did before!
