Benoit Dupras is passionate about music, water sports and outdoors adventures. He is involved in environmental activism, local volunteering initiatives and community team sports. His goals for the year are to learn Spanish fluently to the same level of proficiency as English and French, to explore the natural wonders of Ecuador and to learn about the reality of local communities. My favorite quote comes from a song by Amber Run, an alternative rock band from the United Kingdom, and it says that "I don't wanna be the center of anything, just a part of something bigger". Whenever I hear it, I am reminded of being humble as well as reaching out to help others in need around me.
