  • Description

    Hi, my name is Alexander and I'm from Ottawa, Canada. I enjoy running, indoor rock-climbing, reading about psychology, and I've been learning Japanese.

    I'm a recent English Language & Literature graduate from the University of British Columbia. I'm interested in health and wellbeing, education, and publishing roles. I'm planning to start a MSc Psychology degree in Scotland in September 2021. I value being mindful of other people, being open to new perspectives, and learning new skills.
