Starting in 2010, I taught English abroad for over a decade. I developed a passion for teaching children, and loved watching them grow into glowing, confident students. This, coupled with an early childhood love of reading, inspired me to become a Reading Intervention Coach. Now, I’ve brought my devotion and professionalism to LEARNstyle!
My hero is J.R.R. Tolkien. He single-handedly created entire worlds, races, and languages which have stood the test of time, and even today they are familiar to people of all ages and backgrounds.
I love writing. Everyday, I sit down in front of my computer and, like my heroes, try to create new worlds and realities for others to enjoy. It’s a long, difficult journey, but when you cross the finish line and read something born of your own mind, the feeling is amazing!
Here is a picture of me when I was just 6 years old!
My favourite movie is Ghostbusters (1984). It’s so funny, and every time I watch it, it brings me back to my childhood!
My best memory is playing hockey at the Great Wall of China. My friends and I started the first hockey league in our city, and our team was invited to play on a frozen lake at the base of the wall.
My favourite animal is my dog. She is a brave and clever little dog who can always bring a smile to my face.
I was part of a loving family, and thoroughly enjoyed reading and playing hockey. I wasn’t a very good hockey player, but that doesn’t always matter! As I grew up, I wanted more and more to explore the world, which is why I decided to move abroad.

Although I was never a very good hockey player, I’ve always loved watching games and playing with friends. On top of hockey, my other hobbies include writing and playing guitar! I love being creative and artistic!

The key to success is standing firm against the unknown and declaring, “Sorry, not today, thank you!”
