Favourite quote (explanation):
“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music”.
Not everybody is going to understand what you do, but that doesn’t mean you should stop doing it. It is not that your values and actions are frowned upon but rather that your passion just so happens to be where others least expect it to be. Follow your passion, and dance to the music of your life. 

Why I was interested in Global Perspectives:
I was tired of regular school and was looking for a challenge. Plus, I’d always wanted to go on a cultural exchange and the program seemed to offer so much more than that. I loved the idea of having the chance to take courses that weren’t available to all students, and dove at the opportunity for an early grade 12 credit. Global Perspectives seemed like a huge eye opener, and a chance for both self-discovery and adventure. Since I’m obvs an adventurer 

Favourite music and artist?
John Mayer and Jack Johnson 
They are both such inspirational artists with so much to say. And they’ve always had the perfect song for how I’m feeling; through the good times and the bad. 

A lyric that represents you, or an aspect of your life:
I’ve got some friends, some that I hardly know 
But we’ve had some times I wouldn’t trade for the world 
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go –Rise Against
Chances are, when said and done, who will be the lucky ones who make it all the way 
Chances lost are hopes torn up pages, maybe this time 
Chances are we’ll be the combination, chances come and carry me
Chances are waiting to be taken, and I can see 
Chances are the fascination, chances won’t escape from me
Chances are only what we make them, and all I need -Five For Fighting
