A life-long learner of cross-cultural issues, she has a keen interest in strong cross-cultural relationships both in Canada and abroad. As part of this journey, she recently participated in Encounter World Religion Centre’s course offering in which she attended lectures in Sikh, Buddhist, and Hindu Temples, as well as a Moslem Mosque, learning about their traditions, history, values, and faith.
