Tell us about yourself.

I am a second-year student in Marketing at Nova Scotia Community College. I’ve been living in Halifax for about 5 years and 9 years all together in Canada. Originally from Mexico, I’ve come to love everything about Nova Scotia. I am extremely thankful to be able to help Digital Nova Scotia achieve their mission to support the community while learning skills that will help me in the future. My goal for the future is to be able to help people with my knowledge and to create my own business that might support people in need. I have work experience in various different positions as well as planning and executing events.

Ricardo, can you tell us something about yourself that isn’t in your bio?

What’s something you’re really interested in that might surprise us?

Mythology is something I have always been interested in, especially Greek, Germanic and Aztec. I love all the stories, odysseys, and poems.

If you were given a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
