WHO'S ORBIT 5?

I’m David Mendoza, Director of Orbit 5 and a disruptor in the community of career development practitioners in Toronto. Toy Designer Felipe Ocampo created a series of crafts that I use in this learning initiative to give a playful spin to the way I facilitate my workshops. This has resulted in high engagement from our students and discussions that have helped them find their north and design life and career paths that lead to happiness and well-being.

I’m passionate about impactful education and am a huge advocate for experiential learning.

My lived experiences as international student in Britain and immigrant student in Canada allow me to relate to the challenges students face when transitioning into life in their new home country, and also equip me to guide them to make the most of the experience in this amazing land. 

My background is in Business, Marketing, and Community Services, and I bring 10+ years of experience working in capacities ranging from teaching and coaching, to international student recruitment, career development, and educational tourism.

I love:

– Toronto! The minute I landed in this city, it was love at first sight. I love the 6ix!

– Human stories and continuous learning

– Cultures and Languages: I can work in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, intermediate in French, and foundations in German and Italian. Started Mandarin lesson in January 2020 – if anyone is down for a language exchange let me know! #winwin

– Culinary Travel: Through my side hustle, I connect humans through food trips around the world

Core Values:

– Kindness

– Authenticity

– Fun

– Autonomy

– Adaptability

I WANNA TRAVEL – I WANNA EAT – I WANNA HEAR STORIES FROM OTHER HUMANS
