About Me

Hello everyone! My name is Pilar. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina but I live in Toronto, Canada. I recently graduated from York University and I studied French and Spanish translation into English. I'm excited to use my knowledge of languages to make a difference in any way that I can.

My passions include women's rights, gender equality, justice and transparency, languages, reading, baking, travelling, and animals.

My challenges include improving my spoken French and finding a meaningful way to make a difference in the world, however small the difference.

My specialty is translation.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

-Martin Luther King Jr.

My Vision

A world where women's voices are heard and carry as much weight as that of men's.
