We are thrilled to welcome the newest member of our team - Hilel Essadi! Hilel is a student intern from Paris, France, and is studying Foreign Languages at Université Sorbonne Nouvelle. This is her first time working abroad, and her first time in Canada! Along with her formal language studies, Hilel has also worked as an English tutor for children in France. Hilel is passionate about meeting people from new cultures and traditions, and learning what language and tradition means to people from different places. She is also interested in how language and culture can connect and transcend different generations.
She will be working with us throughout May and June, giving tours of the museum, helping us prepare for our next exhibits, and sharing her discoveries with us on social media. We are very happy to have her! If you're in the area, please be sure to come by and welcome her to Toronto - and Canada!
