Post SFU

Pre trip:

I went to SFU to find a book on the Spanish inquisition. More specifically, a book that depicts Ferdinand’s part in it. I will capture what I find through reading and a near- photographic memory.

Post trip:

I learned that other than being a great school, SFU hosts a fun population, museums, an extensive library, and the best Indian restaunt outside of India. The theme of the trip was mainly for learning and searching, but it also got me thinking about where I want to go after Glen eagle. Next is to read the book in the short term, and start looking for an expert to interview in the long term.

please comment and let me know for changes

Untill next time,


Eminent Person Introduction

Hello everyone,

The eminent person I am doing this year is king Ferdinand II of Spain. He was the king of Spain during the Spanish inquisition. We all know about the Spanish inquisition. We know it was the church that started it, but it was Ferdinand who made it legal. My main question is: Did he choose to allow it, or was he forced to push the bill through? We are not very connected beyond gender, but it has been something I have wondered about ever since I knew about the Spanish inquisition. Through this, I want to learn the truth, and have out in the definite, but I also want to improve my public speaking skills. Learning how to perfect my interview skills would also be useful for the dream job I have imagined for myself. Long writing pieces would be another thing I would like to improve on. This is all for now. Leave a comment if something needs confirming.
