Declan is an 18-year-old Canadian from Alberta.
Having just graduated high school, Declan was unsure of what to do next.
“I was unsure if I wanted to spend this money on travel or head directly to post-secondary, and that is when I discovered Edumadic, which sounded like the perfect solution to my issue.”
During our Asia Fall program, he will be taking some first year university courses through Athabasca University in both science and French language.
“My interest in bilingualism stems from my personal experiences with others who can speak more than one language with ease and witnessing firsthand how valuable a skill it is. It also provides me with a fun new way to challenge myself and make connections with other people I otherwise would not be able to”.
Declan already has plenty of travel experience under his belt, having traveled to Mexico and Europe, where he spent a month living with a host family in France. He also spent a few weeks in Scotland competing in judo.You can usually find Declan out exploring nature, playing his ukulele or seeking out delicious Thai cuisine!
