Congratulations to Milton resident Yaanah Rehman who came first place in the Halton Region Spelling Bee representing Milton and 4th place Canada wide!
Milton MP Adam van Koeverden stopped by her house on Saturday December 5th along with Local Milton Town Councillors Rick Di Lorenzo and Kristina Tesser-Derksen to congratulate Yaanah on her achievement.
Yaanah is 8 years old, besides being an ace speller she’s also a talented singer, child actress and a fan of “Once Upon a Time” tv series. She displayed her singing talent by performing a wonderful rendetion of the tv series theme song to the attending media and dignataries outside her home.
When asked how what she felt after she found out she won, she replid saying “Honestly I went crazy, I kept screaming around the house.” She mentioned her parents had to say “Yaanah, stop yelling” she was so excited.
Her parents (Obaid Rehman and Sana Tahir) say that Yaahnah’s dream is to become either an actor or singer.
