I'm a Canadian university student completing my undergrad at the University of Ottawa in International Development and Globalization!
I'm originally from a small city in Eastern Ontario close to Montreal and Ottawa. I grew up francophone with pretty typical Canadian traditions, therefore, I do say sorry more than I probably should and LOVE maple syrup.
I'm fluent in French and English and know a little bit of Mandarin, Spanish, Italian and American Sign Language. I love to travel and learn about new cultures and most importantly about local cuisine (I'm always interested in trying a traditional specialty and will certainly start most conversations about something related to food).
I'm very excited to go on new adventures and see the world!

More details about your skills
I'm fluent in French and English and know a little bit of Mandarin, Spanish, Italian and American Sign Language. I worked with kids for over 6 years at youth centers and day camps as a facilitator for youth between the ages of 6 and 13. Through that work, I learned to be very resourceful and creative with any activities and at finding solutions to any issue that might come up. I'm also currently attempting to learn to use R to better my analytic skills.
Chinese (Mandarin): Beginner
What else ...
My hobbies mostly revolve around language learning but I also love skating. I'm not the most physically active person but I'm always up for a challenge and I really enjoy adrenaline-driven activities (I've had the chance to go skydiving and paragliding). Board games are also something I thoroughly enjoy. Strategic games are some of my favourites in addition to classic games like Scrabble of Spot It.
