About Yourself: I'm a student finishing up university, doing a double major, honours, in Law & Human Rights with plans for further education. (Either international human rights law to be studied in Europe or law school to be taken here in Canada.) I pursue fish as a hobby, because I find it relaxing and rewarding, in addition to some of my other hobbies which include traveling, reading, writing, music, and reptiles. I've lived abroad in Germany and plan to live in other countries again down the line - there's nothing like being immersed in another culture!
