Story: I am from Halifax, the east coast of Canada, but haven't lived there for as long as I can remember! At present I am looking to improve my ability as a teacher, and to explore this culturally fascinating part of the world. After I made my first trip to Taipei in 2007 I fell in love with the city and am happy to now call it my home! My interests are quite simple - I love being around people and being outdoors. I also love reading and learning new things. Taipei thankfully provides many opportunities in both regards, being so close to the sea and the mountains, and also having so many great libraries and bookstores.
