Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a Sri Lankan native, who spent the early parts of my childhood
in Africa, before coming to Canada.
As a former journalist, I've lived and worked in different parts of
Canada, which include Montreal, Manitoba, Hamilton, Guelph and
Toronto. I think it's made me become more open-minded of various
communities and lifestyles.
I am passionate about the people in my life, the causes I get
involved with and curious to keep learning.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Continuing to grow and expanding my personal and professional
network. Love to meet new people!
I also try to volunteer when I can -- right now, I'm teaching
conversational English to kids in Brazil via Skype.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making great conversation, or so I’m told.
But don’t take it for granted, you've got to ask questions for the
banter to unfold.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. My phone (I love conversing, not just texting)
3. Family & Friends
4. Ummm...did I mention chocolate???
5. Books and Stories
6. Great food!
But, to be honest, I can really do without most of these, except
for the presence of those amazing loved ones who are with you
through thick and thin, and the highs and the lows.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to keep pushing myself and surrounding myself with positivity.
All the while, craving for some chocolate :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either exploring downtown Toronto, on the phone, catching up on
Scandal/House of Cards or reading books on leading change.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everything is on the record!!
