Hi everyone! My name is Candace and I am from Thornhill, Ontario, Canada, a city just North of Toronto. I currently study medicine at the University of Ottawa and completed my undergraduate degree at Queen’s University. I love working with children and I aspire to become a paediatrician after medical school. I absolutely love travelling and have been to 16 different countries to date. My most memorable trip was my 8-week backpacking trip to Southeast Asia last summer. I also love camping and hiking in various parks throughout North America. When I’m not on vacation, you can find me playing piano or trombone, or playing a wide variety of sports including squash, volleyball, and cycling. During downtime, I like lounging in my hammock and watching movies while eating lots of ice cream. I’m excited to embark on this trip and learn more about Arctic life and about all of you!
