While our American and UK counselors have been enjoying a cold winter-our Australian and New Zealand counselors have been getting excited for a experiencing a never-ending summer. They will be leaving their home countries at the start of winter and heading into the start of an amazing summer in the USA-Lucky!
One of our new recruits is Brandon 19 and says he is from “the ‘Lucky Country’ (Australia). I’m famous for making friends easily, being a mini master chef and having a good sense of humor ” Brandon is really looking forward to experiencing the sense of community and companionship at Camp Carolina. He says “allowing the focus of camp to be all about the campers sounds very rewarding. I’m excited to take on that responsibility and to show the campers an awesome time!”
He adds “I’ve been to so many places, which makes it hard to pick. At the top of the list would probably be snorkeling off the coast of Koh Samui, Thailand. The water was warm, crystal clear and home to a plethora of tropical marine life. It was such a picturesque place, but unfortunately my camera couldn’t go underwater.”
His heroes and role models? “My Dad is such a good role model to me and I have learnt so much from him. Whether it be about human relations or the importance of hard work, my Dad has always be someone to look up to. My Mum is a very strong and independent person and she has taught me how to take care of myself making me the independent person I am today. She is a very intuitive person who has shown me how to have a high level of awareness of other people.”
Favorite quote? I have a few.“You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for failure is not the falling down, but the staying down” Mary Pickford “He who asks a question is a fool for 5 minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever” – Chinese Proverb”
Finally Brandon what is your favorite sport to play/hobby?
“Two main things I love are photography and soccer. I have always loved taking and editing photos from all of the amazing places I’ve been. Soccer is a sport I played for years. Soccer is a very rewarding sport, and the camaraderie involved is what makes it my favorite to play.”
Brandon-Your arrival day is getting closer, we can’t wait for you to get here!
