Favourite part of Peak life
The people and the company’s culture. No matter how stressful work might be, a touch of humour is always present!
If you were to write an autobiography, what would it be called?
The day I decided to move to the other side of the world
While working at the Alliance Française of Vancouver, I organized a conference about Simone de Beauvoir and the history of feminism in France. A few days before the event I received a call from CBC Radio-Canada asking if I would like to be interviewed. The next morning I was in their studio speaking about my conference for the ‘Boulevard du Pacifique’ show.
Favourite B.C. pastime
Rollerblading on the Seawall around Stanley Park
French, English, Polish, Spanish
Singing terribly, I sing so badly that my friends once bought me a ‘dislike’ stamp
Furthest flung place you’ve lived?
Brussels, Galway, Madrid, Warsaw, pick your favourite!
