KANDIS & DYLAN

After a photoshoot modelling a line of clothing on a sticky hot day in Arrowhead Provincial Park, there really was only one way to truly cool down and refresh for Kandis Dacosta and Dylan Hewitt.

Raised in Huntsville, Ontario, minutes away from Stubb's Falls, Kandis went to the University of Ottawa for a double major in criminology and sociology. She has been spending her time working with youth both in the Huntsville area and in Grimsby, Ontario. Growing up, Kandis always had an interest in journalism, so it is not surprising one of her interests is expressing herself through writing. In the winter she snowboards and enjoys other outdoor activities in this beautiful and sometimes wild area of the country.

From the niagara region of Ontario, Dylan was born and raised in the small town of Beamsville. He ended up far from home in Huntsville playing Junior A hockey for the Hunstville Otters for two years. Returning to Niagara, he played for the Junior Canadians in Welland as well as graduating from Niagara College in Body Mechanics. Dylan continues the family tradition of carpentry. He spent time in northwestern Canada building giant oil tanks to store synthetic oil, building civil structures and is now putting his skills to work locally in the Huntsville region.

KANDIS FUN FACT: "I can lick my elbow! I can," she says laughing of a quirky skill that she possess! With that, she demonstrates! Its true! She really can!

DYLAN FUN FACT: "I was born with six toes!" Another first for The Hello Project as he describes his left foot. After some corrective surgery to fix the crowding of his toes, he's happy it does not slow him down in his continued passion for hockey.
