About me:

Hi, my name is Hannah. First off, I'm very interested in the arts, music and filmmaking, and my skills include speaking 3 languages (English, French and intermediary Spanish), playing the cello and painting. Secondly, I would consider my sense of humour, my organisation skills and my confidence as my strengths. Thirdly, my preferred collaboration arrangement would be online with international students and professionals. Finally, I'm deeply upset by Trump, the environmental crisis and the various crises that don't get enough attention from the media or international aide (such as Venezuela and Yemen, currently). I believe in attacking such problems with compassion and education instead of through violence, though being fuelled with anger at injustice to keep the cause going. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you're interested in collaborating.
Have an excellent day despite the state of the world we live in.

The Merriam-Webster defines urban sprawl as “the spreading of urban developments (such as houses and shopping centers) on undeveloped land near a city.” But it’s more than that: Urban sprawl has defined how where many us of live is planned out, and therefore, how we move and live within that space.
