In 2014 Adrien Martinon was a 17 year old High School student in his last year at the International School of Panama. He comes from a Panamanian mother and a French father, and grew up speaking Spanish and French simultaneously. He went to the French school Paul Gauguin in Panama, only really coming into contact with English until 6th grade, when he entered the International School of Panama.
Adrien is an International Baccalaureate student, yet has a lot of other interests outside of academics. He enjoys reading fiction, and is deeply intrigued by Philosophy, Physics, and the study of different cultures. When he can, he practices Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and loves Thai boxing. He is in full support of equality within a society, whether it is by race, nationality, or gender.
He identifies as an egalitarian before anything, but became highly interested in the Men’s Human Rights Movement spreading across Canada and the United States. He wishes to raise attention to the ways in which men are discriminated against, due to misconceptions about gender roles and traditional values. He hopes he can bring a change to the way people view men’s issues.
He would like men and women to feel comfortable discussing them and working towards solving them.
