In my spare time I: I love spending time with friends and family. The outdoors is where I long to be and I recently have been enjoying yoga!
Things that make me happy: - The smell of lavender - Late afternoon sun - The sound of church bells on the hour - Children laughing - Singing and dancing - Helping others - Swimming in open waters - Food! - Live music - Warm hugs - Education for all children - Friendly smiles - Good news - Exploring new places - World Peace! - The list goes on and on....
This that make me sad: - Seeing someone hurt - Seeing someone lonely - Seeing someone hopeless - Myself feeling any of the above - Polluted land, waters, and air - Traffic jams - Violence and brutality of war - Greedy corporations - Poverty - Nobody smiling or saying hi in the streets
When I grow up I want to be: Someone that has made a positive difference. A caring leader. A person that inspires others. A good listener.
If I could recommend one page on the Internet to visit, I would recommend: May I get back to you?...

About Me   About Me
Hello, my name is Amber. I live in Toronto, Ontario I have recently started an internship as the Resource Developer at TakingitGlobal. I have a strong passion for humanities and believe in educating for a global community.I am currently completing my BEd at the University of Toronto and will be graduating with the qualification to teach at the primary/junior level. Previously, I graduated from Ryerson with a Bachelor of Design and a minor in marketing. I have a love for travel and I have experienced backpacking through many parts of Europe. In 2003, I volunteered in Burkina Faso, Africa where I developed a lifelong goal to make a positive difference in the lives of others. More recently, I lived and taught in Thailand for almost two years. It was there that I validated my desire to become a educator with a voice committed to the importance of global learning and social justice. TIG is an ideal organization for me to gain experience with as there is a shared belief to prepare and empower all students socially and academically for their futures as global citizens.
