My name is Sebastian. I am 13 years old. I am very excited to start high school this fall. I have been a member of TASSO for 2 years but I have been playing steel pan with Salmon since I was 4 years old. In grade 6 I won the Steel Pan award and I felt very happy.
I excel at Math, Science, and Sports such as soccer, basketball, football, skiing, skating, and swimming. I am a very athletic and competitive person who dislikes losing and I believe that sports are good for my health, can help develop my leadership skills, and make new friends.
My hobbies include reading, watching movies, playing video games, basketball, and soccer. I play competitive soccer at club level and my team recently won our winter league at the Hanger. I love fruits and especially strawberries. I can finish a whole pound of strawberries at a meal!
My parents immigrated to Canada from Romania. I fluently speak Romanian, English, and am currently learning French. I think it is important to speak more than one language because it opens up doors to other cultures. I also like travelling to Europe because that is where my roots are from. Some countries in Europe that I have visited include: Romania, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and France. I am very excited to explore Australia and I am grateful that TASSO has given me such a wonderful opportunity.
In 10 years I see myself becoming a professional athlete, a doctor, or a dentist.
