Matt loves dancing and is a camping enthusiast – whether survival or not – although going on an all-inclusive tropical trip is up there too! Also on the dream list is a trip to outer space – he thinks it would be amazing to see the earth from a different perspective. Matt’s favourite quote – “A marathoner hits a hard wall, and thinks they can’t keep going, but remember, at that wall they’ve still got 40% of their energy left.”
Iliah is half dancer half pastry chef because “everybody loves cake!” At 19 she came to London, Ontario from Florida. Although she is definitely a sun lover, she has been here ever since. As a creative, fun and independent person, her favourite quote comes from the Wizard of Oz: “You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.”
Martha has 2 passions in life: dancing and writing. While dancing, she is also working on publishing some adventurous, thoughtful and funny material. As a nature lover, she would love to stay in a hut in Bora Bora – where they have the glass floors. She is very knowledgeable in astrological charts and has great insight into personalities. Her and Cocoa Chanel (her chocolate Labrador) are best buddies and add delight to people’s days. Her favourite quote: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,” by Maya Angelou.
Wes was born and raised on a farm so he loves animals and said that he would say yes to a chance to be a rodeo clown – as a cool adventure! Wes’s favourite quote: “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it is the pebble in your shoe.”
