  • I come from a Tamil-speaking family in Sri Lanka and was raised in Belleville, Ontario. Aside from English and Tamil, I have been studying French and Japanese since high school.
  • In pursuit of becoming a veterinarian, I am going into my second year as a Life Sciences Major. I am also the External Relations Director of the Japanese Relations at Queens social club.
  • In terms of hobbies, I enjoy a variety of things. Since elementary school, I've always enjoyed singing and playing the piano and flute. I spend a lot of time studying languages and listening to music as well!
  • Last year I entered directly into Japanese 200, so I didn't get to experience the learning environment of Japanese 100. Because of this, I'm really glad I'll be able to take part in facilitating this environment for the students this fall. I’m looking forward to working with you all !
