Academy Canada Graduate To Be Living Large in Spain


My name is Emily McCarthy. I am 19 year old.

I started the Therapeutic Recreation program at the Kenmount Road Campus in September 2013, and I will be graduating in June 2015.

After I graduate, I will be working at an English Summer Camp in Spain for over a month. I am a very ambitious person who enjoys challenges and trying new things.

One day, I was on the internet and I noticed that a post on the Academy Canada’s Facebook page that there was job opportunity with Scotia Personnel that helps young adults work in different countries. They have opportunity for students that want to work in summer camps, babysitting, teaching and hotel hospitality.

Scotia Personnel Limited in conjunction with its overseas partners provides a spectrum of personnel services, educational opportunities, job opportunities and cultural exchange opportunities, nationally and/or internationally.

My role for this summer is being a Camp Monitor which will be planning activities, children safety, and teaching English. It will be busy and a lot of hard work but I’m excited for the new experience. It will be great learning experience because I will learn a new language and meet lots of new people. I knew I always wanted to travel the world but I never thought I would be living in Spain after I graduated. I would totally recommend this to anymore who wants to try something different and get as much experience as they can.

The interview process takes a while but it’s worth it because staff from Scotia Personnel were so helpful in finding me the right summer camp to go to in Spain. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for all of the support from my teacher, classmates and staff at Academy Canada.
