I speak English, French, Spanish, and Bulgarian.

I am a dedicated learner and I’m skilled at sharing with others my passion for languages and cultures.

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school?

When I am not at school, you will find me making art, hiking, and reading about science and the evolution of language among other things. I love spending time with family and friends and cooking.

What is something not everyone knows about you?

If you knew me really well, you would know that I like making and decorating birthday cakes for my friends and relatives. And that as a child I attempted to learn the language of animals.

What are some of your most favourite things?

I am passionate about geology and anthropology. Close to Mildenhall Montessori School, with my daughter, I found exposed rock and fossils revealing the tropical sea covering Toronto during the Cambrian period.
