I’m Jayra, an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto in Canada, where I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Information degree.
My hobbies include writing, baking bread, suburban night driving, doodling, reading, learning history, and playing videogames. I also like listening to all kinds of music, but mostly sad or nostalgic music, ballads, and OPM (Original Philippine Music)!
Perhaps one of my greatest interests lie in learning the German language, which I began to self-study when I was around 17 years old. In a way, as a lost high school senior, German gave me a sense of direction and goal. What began as a spontaneous hobby became the main motivator for me to really step outside of my comfort zone for the first time, starting at age 18. My love for this language has given me the push I needed to finally travel alone, study at another university abroad, and work abroad.
