I was a commerce student at Dalhousie University but have decided to take a break from my education for the foreseeable future. I would like to get as much work experience as possible over the next couple of years and am fully committed to work. When I was living in Toronto I took care of a couple of elderly neighbours by providing lawn care and general maintenance. I also would give general check ups and any indoor assistance they required.
