What is your favourite memory of your time so far at TCS?
The Rigby girls throwing me a surprise wedding shower. Soon after, my husband and I enjoyed our wedding ceremony in the chapel and our reception in the decorated Osler Hall.

Which living person do you most admire?
A Canadian teacher who lived in Malawi for 10 years and learned a local language by living with the people in their villages, became their friend and confidant, and helped them improve their quality of life, while working and raising four children with her husband. I lived with her family and saw them keep their faith, values and sense of humour in really challenging conditions.
