I was born in Toronto Ontario. Growing up I always knew I wanted to travel the world and I thought what better way to see the world and make money then to work aboard ships? I am currently on the Statendam working as a Librarian on my third contract. I love working in the Library; it gives me the opportunity to meet new people, catch up on my reading and enjoy the beautiful scenery this world has to offer. I love reading books on travel, culture and history. I am currently reading “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett and would recommend this to anyone!
