Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a confession to make....
Fourteen long years I've been here in Ottawa, and to this very day
ice, skates, and I do NOT get along...at all.
If you can get over the fact that I look like a wobbling penguin on
the canal we'll be just fine.
Anyway I'm Juan! (Yes the sexiest and most unique name there is, if
that doesn't draw you in I don't know what will) Just a Colombian
guy trying to survive these winters. But I do have to thank them
for introducing me to skiing. The thrill, the excitement, and the
wind in your face as you are speeding down the hill is second to
Since I started University I've had to sacrifice some soccer time
for library time. But that hasn't changed my passion for the sport.
I will live and die a Madridista, and having the chance to go to
Madrid this summer was a dream come true!
And although it being a weird looking fruit, Squash has to be my
favorite sport to play. Don't get me wrong, I love to watch and
play soccer but Squash is my childhood, can't remember the time I
wasn't holding a racquet.
Love trying new things and being spontaneous, like right now for
example. I'm writing this as I skydive 4000 m from a plane, how
does he do that you ask? A LOT of trial and error.
I will always be a nerd at heart; I've done waayyy to many things
to even try to deny this fact haha.
Right now my passport only has four different countries stamped in
it but I will make it my life goal to make that five, then my next
life goal will be to make it six....then seven.....you get the idea
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working full time right now in a small Engineering company as a
Come next September I will be back at Carleton to finish my fourth
and final year of my degree. Then next up on the plate is Grad
As mentioned above, I have less time for sports than I did in HS
but I try to make the most of it. Thank GOD Carleton's gym is free
for students haha, aside from that a couple of close friends and I
made two soccer teams that we play with every Friday and Sunday
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lighting a candle with an orange peel
Remembering faces, interests, talents, and passions of other
acquaintances. Knowing all that really helps starting a
conversation when you have completely forgotten their name.
Squash, played competitively throughout late elementary, up to
grade 12. Won a couple tournaments too.
Skiing, forwards sure, backwards ok, in the air fine, landing..
most of the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What ever you are doing at any moment, someone else will be doing
(or have done) the exact same thing at the exact same time.
*For example, as of typing this I pressed the space bar several
times. Each of those times, ~600,000 other people did so as
by the way)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends; it's either studying (won't be doing this for at least 12
months :D), getting comfy in front of the TV, out playing something
or going to my friends' basement bar to hang out and have a few
