If you had a chance to talk to me, you’d probably guess that I’m living in the wrong era! I prefer small, quiet towns over big cities, dream of having a large collection of books in a beautiful mahogany library with windows facing the east and west, draped in crimson velvet curtains and tall, antique chairs to match. (I let my fantasies slide again!)

I’m an introvert, a studier of character, prefer listening over talking, like to stay home, and love untouched scenic beauty. Writing has always been a part me ( Thanks to my awesome parents) and every author contributed more to it. I love writing poetry as much as reading a good sonnet. I watch Korean Dramas and Canadian baking shows ( though I suck at baking!) and unwind with the tunes of Luigi Marchitelli.

Jane Austen is my favourite author of all times since Elizabeth Bennet’s character, (if not appearance) resembles my own 🙂

I looked so ridiculous with a face mask (which I don’t normally use) that I just had to take a snap. I would have never shared it but since AU students share such amazing stories of your life journies with me and the Voice Team ; I wanted to share something more personal with you.

Minds We Meet—Christine Dubois

“Some say that our destiny is tied to the land, as much a part of us as we are of it.  Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, so that one’s destiny intervenes with many others.  It is the one thing that we search for, or fight to change.  Some never find it. … Read more »
