Former VRG student shares big ideas about life and living . . .

Former VRG student, Daniel Leksell (2008), danielvisited his old school on Tuesday, November 11 to speak to English 7 students.

He brought poetry that has inspired him, spoke about what really motivates a person, and the difference between living and being lived. His ideas were interesting and inspiring and related directly

to the film, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

eternal sunshine

– watched by these students earlier during the week.

Both Daniel’s lecture and the film inspire the students in English 7 to consider – what is their goal in life? and how will it take form?

Daniel is currently studying fine arts, before that he studied medicine for three years, and has traveled a great deal . . . he is a great example of a creative and critical thinker.

Thanks to Daniel for visiting VRG (his “old” school again) – inspiring!

I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
