I am a lifelong learner who loves to explore the world. If I let my curiosity take me in whatever direction it pleases, I can easily spend an entire day wandering the city, and making friends in unsuspected places. I like to travel, but my definition of travelling is broader than most peoples. Books have a remarkable quality of being able to transport me to distant times and places. Speaking with someone from a different culture opens my eyes to different ways of thinking and living. When it comes to "actual travelling", I love to do that as well. I love the sense of adventure, of waking up each day and having no clue what new joys and challenges will face me.
I am a teacher, which combines some of the things I like most: science and people. I enjoy classical music, and other music as well. One of my favorite musicians is Glen Gould. I like to keep up to date with politics and world events, and keep myself well-informed about them. Recently I've gotten into fitness and health. I love to eat well and keep myself healthy. I like to swim, run, and bike. In the future, I want to be a lifeguard and run a half-marathon. As I mentioned before, I love new adventures, whether it be in a different city or a different country. I enjoy meeting people, and like to think I can get along with almost anyone. I am an unapologetic coffee addict. It's my only addiction, so I feel somewhat justified in it. I care a lot about doing what's right for the world and preserving the environment. This comes from my love of the outdoors and being in nature. I think science can help us understand and prevent impending global disasters, and my hope is to educate the youngens to play a role in the future!
