New Semester 2 Student - Jason Bonneau
When it comes to my identity, the only thing that is absolute is my name. I'm a very diverse person. When you have strong roots in the north and in the south, different things influence you. I'm definitely Canadian. I love Canada. It's gorgeous, and the people here are the most down to earth, and rational people I think on the whole planet. I definitely get offended when people call me American when I'm abroad! Music is a big part of my life. I love all genres, but some of my favorites would have to be northern country like Ernest Monias, and New Horizon, and I LOVE southern country straight outta Nashville! Another favorite music genre of mine is Hip hop. I love fast beats and all the different sounds that you hear in hip hop music. Aside from listening to music, I also play music. I first took on the piano back in Gr. 4, and then went on to take Saxophone in Gr. 6. Another big part of my identity is my family.They teach me a lot of things. One thing that I enjoy is northern hospitality. I'm sure you know what I mean. Walk right in, have at the fridge, take a seat, stay a while! I don't really participate in many activities, but I do enjoy volleyball, badminton, helping out, and learning. I used to volunteer at the hospital in Prince Albert and that is one thing that really made me feel accomplished and appreciated. It's really nice knowing that you're needed and that you're doing it out of the goodness of your heart. I played club badminton for a few years, and once was actually a part of the Smashing Bananas volleyball team in Prince Albert. All around I'm a nice guy, love to help, love listening, learning, being with family and friends, smiling, and life itself.
