“To sum me up: avid tennis fan eagerly awaiting Taylor Swift’s re-recordings <3.”
“Right now, with spending more time at home I have been enjoying going on short winter walks to breathe fresh air, dog watch, and get some exercise. I have also been enjoying watching Star Trek: The New Generation on Netflix. I am very passionate about the environment, specifically sustainability, and what we can do as communities to protect our Earth.”

“I am very passionate about promoting environmental awareness and initiatives amongst youth. I have been working with students for the last 8 years in a variety of different areas such as school subject matter, personal development and professional training. I enjoy teaching, facilitation, and event management. I look forward to working with students and making our network and outreach even bigger.”
“I am the human embodiment of organized chaos!” I love all things journalling, reading and getting to know other people, but I also do love my personal time. My comfort shows are definitely Criminal Minds and Grey’s Anatomy, but over quarantine I have also become a Vampire Diaries fan. Can’t wait to connect with everyone!”
