All about me

By: Laurier Boisvert

My favorite Sport Snowboard is my favorite sport. To practice this sport you need a pair of boots, a snowboard of one foot width, bindings, and a helmet. Snowboard is a combination of surf which originated in Hawaii, and ski which originated in Scandinavia. The first prototype was created in 1939. In 1970, the Americans became the leaders in this field. Three years ago I took some lessons and today I do snowboard every Sunday with my father at Mont S-Bruno. I like practising this sport for the pleasure of sliding down the slopes, and for playing outside in the winter. This winter Olympics at Sotchi I will be watching for the Canadian Olympic Team and mostly Mark McMoris, 21 years old, who is my favorite snowboard athlete.

My favorite video game My favorite video game is called Need for Speed Most Wanted. I like this game because it offers the players an expansive open world packed with exhilarating action where I can choose my own path to become the most wanted. The players have the freedom to drive anywhere, discover hidden gameplay, takedown rivals, challenge friends or just hang out and toy with the cops. Everything counts towards the end goal of becoming #1 on my personal most wanted list. It gives me the opportunity to experience insane speeds, spectacular crashes, aggressive driving and huge drifts in a virtual environment.


Something I feel has value Ecology is something very important to me because I want to grow in a safe and clean environment as much as possible. I spent my last three summer day camps at the Botanical Garden where I have learned about insects, plants, trees, water and their interrelationships as well as the importance of a green environment. I think it is crucial to recycle and to protect our environment in every way we can. To do so, I recycle at home paper, glass, metal and plastic in our City bin. I also recycle our Christmas tree after the Holiday Season. I donate my clothes and my shoes to the Salvation Army whenever it is too small. Hopefully, the City will soon provide us with a bin for kitchen compost.
