I was raised in the woods, at a kids camp called Gavin Lake. I spent my childhood exploring the forest, imagining myself into adventures and learning about myself from nature. To me, Educo is a place that continues to facilitate all those pieces in me, and allows me to facilitate all those pieces for students.
I have been returning to Educo for nine years now, six as a student and three as a staff member, and every year I learn more about myself and the person I aim to be. Now, as a staff member, I get to learn alongside students from all different backgrounds with wildly different personalities, all experiencing growth in their own way. That is the most inspiring thing about Educo for me.
When I’m not at Educo, I’m generally either sitting at my desk studying for my Bachelor of Science at UBC, or, well, exploring the forest, imagining myself into adventures, and learning about myself from nature. My adventures lately have mostly consisted of rock climbing, hiking, and skiing, but I try and imagine myself into as large a variety as I can. I like to find fun in whatever I’m doing at the moment, and, if I can’t find any, to make it up myself.
