Now for the minor details :-P
I co-own a small business in partnership with my father. To most people owning something of their own is usually a final goal. For me, this was the initial step. I am a bit of a workaholic. I am a very determined person and if I set my mind on getting something done, I won't give it up till I've had it done. Having said that, I am also quite narcissistic. Yeah yeah, I know most people say they're down to earth, well, I'm not. I am awesome and I flaunt it. I do accept my flaws too, which is why I flaunt the better parts of who I am. You should do it too, it's fun :-)
If you can accept my narcissism, read on!
I am a very ambitious person. I don't think I'll ever be satisfied enought with things I achieve, because the beautiful thing about life is that you can always set new goals when you've achieved old ones.
I am highly involved in my community. I am the Vice-President of the Grey Highlands Chamber of Commerce and I will be running for council this coming fall. From there, I will be climbing the political ladder. Why politics? Well, it's been a dream of mine since grade 7. A fairly interesting story. As a 7th grader I was watching the news and they were reporting on another political scandal. So I commented about how every politician should be fired and only honest and intelligent ones be allowed to run for office. So my father told me that if I thought they did such a terrible job, then I should give it a go. And I promised him that the first opportunity I get to run for an election, I'd do it. In addition to running a council campaign and being on the Chamber of Commerce, I sit as the Chamber representative on the Markdale Recreation Committee. AND this past summer I coached 2 soccer teams (U8 and U6 co-ed teams) and had a wonderful time. So, yeah, I usually end up with a pretty full schedule. :-P
I love travelling. I have traveled across Canada (from Victoria, BC to Cornerbrook, NL). I grew up in the Congo. Did most of my schooling in a boarding school in India before I moved to Canada.
