  1. 1. Hello, Multilingual Team!
  2. 2. <ul><li>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 TIG’s 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! </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>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! </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>I came to work for TIG because I wanted to get involved with a meaningful community that would allow me to engage in social issues while interacting with other intelligent, socially conscious individuals . </li></ul><ul><li>I am pleased to be coordinating TIG’s 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! </li></ul>
