Activities and Interests

Skiing

I enjoy downhill skiing. Downhill skiing is when one goes up a mountain on a chairlift and skis down the hill at which ever speed they'd like.

I ski every winter when I go home for winter break. I visit mountains in North and West Vancouver where they are a 40 minute drive from where I live. I also go on ski trips to British Columbia's famous Whistler Resort every winter to ski.

Cooking

I enjoy cooking. I cook by adding different spices and herbs to vegetables, meat, and carbs to make a delicious dish.

I made every meal for my family during the summer so I could get as many opportunities as I can to explore new recipes. The picture on the left is the shrimp alfredo pasta I made in the summer.

Exploring Vancouver

Due to pandemic restrictions on indoor spaces, I used decided to visit the beautiful outdoor attractions in Vancouver. Vancouver is surrounded by many beautiful natural landscapes. There were a lot of beautiful beaches, mountains, parks to visit in and around the city.

In the picture on the left, I was watching the sunset at one of Vancouver's beaches.
