Introduce yourself! Tell us a little bit about your goals and interests:
My goals and interests directly align with each other- business and fashion! I used to be a piano teacher and owned my own music studio, but realized I needed a bit of a change. Currently, I am awaiting my exchange in Paris in September 2018 to partake in a part-time business and fashion internship along with full-time academics at Université Paris-Dauphine.
Why did you choose your language?
I chose French because it is considered the 2nd official language in Canada. It adds finesse to your resume!
Have you ever travelled overseas before? If so, where?
I have traveled everywhere. The list is too long to list but to name some: Spain, Germany, Trinidad, Israel, Jordan, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Mexico, Kentucky, New York City, Costa Rica, Bahamas, etc!
What 3 things MUST you take with you while abroad?
- A journal/camera
- My passion for adjusting to culture
- My lucky marble.
What are you most looking forward to?
I am most looking forward to the food- France is the top gastronomic country in the world!
