Humans of FHCI – Dani Leite

Who is your favourite teacher and why?

“I’m new to FHCI so I don’t know many teachers, but I really like Mr. Lee and Ms. Roca and Ms Neumann and Ms. Ibe and I guess I like all of the teachers I have this semester because they’ve all helped me when I needed it and most of them are funny. Oh, also I really like Mr. Naylor even though he isn’t my teacher. He is really [restrict]funny!”

Do you have any goals (short or long-term)?

“Honestly, my long and short-term goals are to just be happy and to make others happy and have fun because I obviously don’t want just temporary happiness; I also want that as my long-term goal, as well as my short-term goal because I also wanna enjoy being in high school as much as I can.”

What are your favourite extra-curricular activities?

“Dance is by far my favourite extra-curricular. Partying doesn’t count as an extra-curricular, right? But yeah, dance and sports in general are my favourite thing to do and I really enjoyed rugby this year! Shout-out to Mr. Naylor!”

Do you have a motto that you live by?

“‘Be classy, never trashy and just a little bit nasty’ or ‘everyone is facing their own fight’. Those are two really different ones but I guess they’re the two quotes I always refer back to when I’m making decisions.”

What advice would you give to your grade 9 self?

“Don’t transfer to FHCI!”

Do you have any March break plans?

“I think I might be volunteering at a day camp like I did last summer but I’m not one hundred percent sure. If not, then I’m gonna be working and hanging out with friends.”

What is one fun fact about yourself?

“Hmm… I can’t really think of a single fun fact because all of the facts are fun haha, jokes! I don’t know, probably that I can get along with literally anyone to an extent, which I guess is kinda cool because nowadays everyone says that they hate people and I’m a people person; I love people.
