My Bio


Oi future friends and family of the RYE community! My name is Devon L’Heureux and I’m a graduating junior at Leon High School. I’ve always loved learning languages and meeting new people, so I think the life of an exchange student fits me well! I live with my two adorable 11 year old sisters, as well as my loving mom and dad. I am a bit of an animal lover so we have two gerbils, a fish, and my cutie patootie cat, Pusheen. Trying to finish school in three years has definitely made my usual day pretty busy. I do dedicate a lot of time to the chorus groups at Leon a well as my Latin club. I have two part time jobs, one as a tutor at Kumon, and the other hostessing at a Mexican restaurant. While being a hostess is fun, I absolutely adore my job at Kumon! I think that teaching children is definitely one of my passions and I hope I can have a career somewhere in that field. In terms of some of my hobbies, I enjoy listening to Kpop, having fun with my friends, learning new languages, and learning instruments. I tried to teach myself guitar but I have really small hands so my recent introduction with the ukulele seems to be proving fruitful! I suppose I now have a new hobby after finding out that I was picked to go to Brazil! Surely like many exchange students before me, I immediately went home and began learning Portuguese! Thrilled would be an understatement to describe how excited I am to go! Though it may be challenging, I feel like I will be able to board that plane well prepared and ready to start the next chapter in my life.
