Jul 2015
I am a Junior Research Writer at Trend Hunter, a lover of learning, eating and making room for activities. I recently graduated from the University of Guelph and while surprising to some I was, in fact, not in 'farming'. I have a background in political science and psychology and enjoy watching documentaries and reading non-fiction - the real world has so many more twists.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I could spell the word squirrel when I was two. I'm waiting to see if I peaked early ... still waiting.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
My favorite accomplishments have been my travels as an "adult" - living in Paris, backpacking Nicaragua and teaching English to kids in Spain who refused to believe that I could not speak the same language.
What inspires or excites you?
Stephen Hawking's Life.
