Hi there! My name is Nicole and I am from Toronto, Canada. I am 26 years old and I am currently teaching English in a coastal city in South Korea. I studied Geography, Environmental Studies and Education during university. I love to travel and explore new places and experience different adventures. I’ve been a vegan for about 4 years now and vegetarian since I was 18. I love animals and am very passionate about animal rights around the world. I especially love cats, I have a cat family of 5 at home in Canada and I love dogs as well! I am a firm believer in standing up and protecting the voiceless and want to continue to be more involved with animal rights actively. I have two sisters, one older and one younger who I love very much and we are always there for one another and my favourite thing about them is being able to make each other laugh at anything! I love playing sports, especially soccer which I grew up playing and dragon boating I want to continue teaching around the world wherever it takes me and working to make the world a better, kinder and more compassionate place for animals. I love to laugh, run, cook and spend time having great adventures with loved ones!
