Sean Aiken and the “Discover Your Passion” tour

Sean Aiken of "The One-Week Job Project" challenged DHS students to discover their passion.

Grade 11 and 12 DHS students were treated to a presentation today by Sean Aiken as part of his “Discover Your Passion” tour.

In 2007 Sean created the One-Week Job Project, which saw him work 52 jobs in 52 weeks in an effort to find his passion. After completing his job and raising $20,000 for charity, Sean decided that he needed to share his story and the lessons he learned along the way.

Sean’s presentation included a screening of the documentary that his friend Ian MacKenzie produced as he travelled with Sean on his yearlong journey.  Sean spoke with students about the importance of not being afraid to try different things and following your passion.

Thanks for sharing your story with us, Sean!
