Welcome to my Brain
After high school, I settled on a Marketing and Management BSc at the University of Sussex in Brighton - where you can still catch me grabbing a coffee at the local Trading Post.
In high school I explored my different interests and started investing more and more time in extracurriculars. This eventually paid off and I went from writer to Editor in Chief at "L'echo" - our school newspaper. I was also getting more involved in student life and was voted in as President of the School Board. Roles that helped me to develop journalistic, organisational and leadership skills.
Language and etymology are a core part of my being.
I like to see them as keys to communication - the more keys you have the more experiences you're able to take part in and I find that so exciting. In fact, I'm pretty sure that anyone that I've lived with can attest to just how much I won't shut up about it - I was at one point banned at work and at home from talking about grammar. I've since learned to control the urge to discuss new figures de style but I still love learning new words in the languages I speak as well the intricacies of those entirely foreign to me.
As a native English and French speaker, I have a solid base with which to relate to other tongues. I continued my Spanish from middle school all the way to University - including as a pathway on my degree. I've dabbled in Japanese and hope to one day label myself a polyglot.
I like to think of education by its French meaning - the sum of elements that form an individual, not just what you learn in school. A great deal of my education came from my experience growing up in a single-parent household, something I am incredibly proud of. The two main things my mum taught me were gratitude and confidence, things I try to bring with me everywhere I go.
