After graduating from Bishop's University with majors in sociology and politics, I took a G.A.P. year...in my hometown. Volunteering around Toronto to get experience, I asked my employers to donate to my favourite charity, and brought my widowed grandmas to work and show them my world. This idea stems from being involved on student council and working with my university's board of directors. These grandparents joked about their age, but I was amazed by their abilities at that stage in their life. Another influence came from my summer as a "manny" (male nanny) in Sweden for a doctor couple when I learned about the fragility and strength of humans. As an ex-pat Canadian who had mastered the language and culture, the mother guided me through life in a foreign country and gave me an insider's tour of her hospital for my birthday. I am a guide for people who want to understand other generations and cultures.
