  • 1. Hello, Multilingual Team!


  • Writer : I started writing for my university newspaper in 2007. Since then, I have written for national independent magazines in Canada and am a staff writer for a local news and culture blog here in TIGs home city of Toronto. I am passionate about using language to communicate ideas and spread messages to help make the world more informed and better connected! This is also what excites me so much about TIG!


  • Volunteer:As I am sure you all know, volunteering is a rewarding way to contribute to the world while also gaining valuable skills and experience. I was a volunteer board member of the student housing cooperative that I lived in during university. I also volunteered with a group that successfully campaigned to unionize the campus food service employees of the University of Toronto. Both experiences taught me much!


  • I came to work for TIG because I wanted to get involved with ameaningful communitythat would allow me toengage in social issueswhile interacting with otherintelligent, socially conscious individuals .
  • I am pleased to be coordinating TIGs multilingual team because in our increasingly globalized world, communication and interaction are becoming ever more vital.A strong multilingual platform is more important now than ever!
