When did you join the CWH team?
What brought you to CWH?
I was a high school student interested in pursuing Marketing and Communications in university, so I wanted to get some real-life experience and CWH had an opening.
What was your first impression of CWH?
The workplace is very relaxed. Everyone is very friendly yet professional.
Who was your favourite superhero growing up? Why?
My favourite superhero was Spiderman. I always thought it was neat that he could climb walls and shoot webs.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I didn’t have a specific thing I wanted to be, and I still don’t really know (hey, I’m still young!) Whatever I do, I just want to be happy doing it.
What is one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t yet?
Skydiving. I’m afraid of heights, but I think it would be a very good activity to do to overcome my fears.
What’s one thing you want everyone to know about you?
I’m a very laid back person.
What is your favourite website? Why?
My favourite website is probably twitch.tv, because I enjoy watching different live streams, such as Bjergsen and Doublelift playing League of Legends or Ninja playing Fortnite.
What book are you currently reading?
Oddly enough, despite being a student, I haven’t picked up a book in a couple of years. The last book I finished was Power Play by Joseph Finder and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes thriller and suspense fiction.
What is the nerdiest thing about you?
I like to play video games in my leisure time, mostly League of Legends. I’m currently in the top 1000 players in North America. ¯\_(o_o)_/¯
What is one unusual or interesting thing about you?
I can fit 15 McDonald’s chicken nuggets in my mouth.
What is your favourite thing about being part of the CWH team?
Being a part of a team environment where each worker is encouraged to share their ideas and offer feedback.
What is your favourite thing about working in the tech and web hosting industry?
You’re always learning something new every day, and it pushes you to better yourself.
What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you since working at CWH?
When I first started working at Canadian Web Hosting I was pretty shy, but now I’m getting better at communicating with the team.
What is your favourite thing about being a Marketing Intern?
I write for the company blog and I enjoy writing. I like the aspect of learning something new with every topic I write about and challenging myself to find new ways to reach our customers.
