2016 OACRS Scholarship Recipients


OACRS salutes these young adults for their academic achievements and outstanding commitment to their communities. 



Amina Aumeer

Amina has an endless enthusiasm for learning new skills and taking on new challenges. She is engaged in a number of activities that connect her with her community. She is known for her strength of character and ability to self advocate. In September 2016 she will be studying at Seneca College at York University. She hopes eventually to purse a Masters Degree in Social Work.

Ryan Boros
An active community volunteer, Ryan has never let his disability or its limitations define who he is and who he wants to be. During high school, Ryan has successfully balanced his academic pursuits with a commitment to maintaining his physical skills and managing his disability. Others say he is always willing to help and share his story. Ryan will attend Carleton University for an Honours Bachelor in Law, starting September 2016.



Falum Gibson
Falum is described as an intelligent, determined and kind-hearted young woman with a strong work ethic. She is recognized as both an exceptional student and an active community volunteer. Through every challenge Falum has encountered, she has kept positive and focused on her goals in life. In the fall of 2016, Falum will begin her post-secondary career at Carleton University, the next step toward her long-term goal of becoming a Human Rights lawyer.

Wesley Massey
Wesley is a passionate member of his community in Ottawa, Ontario. He is known for his ability to engage in insightful and thought provoking conversations on a wide variety of topics. Most recently he produced a TED Talk for his peers which left them with a thoughtful view of what it might be like for Wesley to live with a physical disability. Wesley will begin his post-secondary career at Carleton University studying history.



Mitchell Stark
Mitchell is described as an extraordinary young man who is anything but average. Last year, while on summer placement with Ryerson University's radio station CJRU The Scope, he successfully pitched his own weekly live talk show, aptly named Access Files, a show on disability issues and advocacy adventures. Mitchell is involved in the youth mentorship program at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, a program that will allow him to make a long-lasting impact on individuals with or without disabilities. Mitchell will begin his studies at Humber College in Fall 2016.
