I'm Ela, a member of the logistics team here at Speakers Corner.
Born and bred in the cold Canadian winters, I have recently moved to London to experience life in the big city. I previously lived in Cardiff for four years having completed my Masters at Cardiff Uni and then working as an Office Manager.
Despite leaving academia, I am still an avid history buff and love everything ancient Greek. I love archaeology and art history and one day I will stand among the ruins of Troy and quote Homer.
After a busy day in the office, you can usually find me curled up with a nice cup of tea (loose leaf, sourced from small farms – yes, I am that snobbish!), watching my favourite anime or catching up reading all my comics. When I’m not being super nerdy I enjoy being as creative as possible. Usually, this means sitting for hours at my sewing machine trying to make myself an outfit, or working on my illustrations and watercolours.
When I’m not having me-time, I can be found out with friends or wandering around the Victoria & Albert (my newly discovered favourite museum). I started Polish dancing at the age of 3 and am happy to be in London where I can dance through life with all of my friends. And yes, I always enjoy a good polka.
