Hello again, it's me! (Emily)
Seeing that you have ventured all the way here, let me introduce myself! I assume that you know my name by now, so we can skip that.
I am currently in my third year at the University of Waterloo studying Global Business and Digital Arts with an Option in Computing Technologies. Basically, this produces the skills to design good products and services that are also viable and marketable.
In my free time, I love, love, love (like, really love) to cook, I really enjoy experimenting with different ingredients. Food has always been a big part of my family; is there any better way to bring people together? Aside from cooking, I also enjoy art
(I particularly like pottery) and I am currently trying to teach myself how to play the guitar and ukulele.
