A History Major and Arts Co-op student at the University of British Columbia, I aspire to a career that involves direct interactions with people, different languages, a team environment, and opportunities to learn about different cultures. I also like to write, research about opportunities to travel and work abroad, and visit Mother Nature through hiking and camping.
The UBC Arts Co-op Program have expanded immensely my knowledge of the possibilities in work I can do as an Arts major, and also allowed me to explore my likes and dislikes for full-time work. A ten-month study exchange in France has not only brought me face to face with the Travel Bug, leading to an almost-obsessive devotion to the round-the-world travel blog. It has also opened my eyes to possibilities abroad, expanding my available options to not only different career sectors, but also different parts of the world.
Hometown: Vancouver, BC, Canada
