Since his childhood, his intelligence, work ethic and compassion have guided Sean Bains towards work helping others. Sean is a University of British Columbia student majoring in Integrative Sciences, with focuses in Physiology, Neuroscience and Early Childhood Education. Outside of his studies he spends time working for Writer’s Exchange, an organization that aims to bring literacy skills to the inner city district of East Vancouver, as well as the Children’s Foundation, which provides support and services for children in care. Sean began volunteering for these programs, and was eventually hired as a result of his great work.
He also enjoys cooking, and takes great pleasure in preparing healthy, nutritious meals, be they for himself or for his whole family. He stays active, choosing to do so by constantly trying out new activities in search of the next physical challenge.
As he is nearing graduation, Sean saw an opportunity in the Semester in Dialogue program to network and learn where he fits, both as an individual and professionally.
Sean plans on working in Public Health, where those same characteristics that have guided him into the Semester in Dialogue program will help him make a positive impact on all those he helps.
