I’m Christopher Law. I’m sure you can tell by browsing around my blog you can see that I love travelling. I suppose it makes sense that I moved to London in July 2014. It’s the travel hub of all of Europe! I haven’t really had the chance to see it all, so hopefully I do this time around. As I travel a great pass time is eating great food! You should see all the food I’ve eaten on my other blog Munch On These. I have a bunch of other social media channels you can follow me on. On my YouTube channel I’ll post some of the most random things ever. If you want a quick look at some other foods you should definitely take a look at my Instagram!
Aside from food and travel I do have other hobbies. After food and travel I think the next thing would definitely be language. If you read the bullet points above you’ll see that I can speak four languages. It’s nothing special really, the first three I was forced to learn since I was young. I also did a major in French. Japanese on the other hand is something I learned on my own. It all started one day when I saw some really bad fansubs and thought to myself I could do better! I took it upon myself to put myself to work and learn how to translate. That later turned into one heck of a beast and I ended up learning a lot more! I wrote more about it on my portfolio page under Rumi Production.
I like consuming information but I also love sharing it. That’s how I got into doing social media and blogging. I’m always trying to find new ways to use social media and market ideas to the masses. In 2013, I participated in a hackathon called Hacking Health at the MaRS Centre in Toronto. The idea was to develop an app or idea that could solve a problem of your choosing. I ended up choosing stigma in mental health. Using social media and what I had learned during my undergrad I came up with an idea to fight the stimga by using social media as leverage. Health is a very big topic for me; specifically obesity and sweeteners. In my final year I wrote a paper on how sugar markets affect obese populations in major cities like Toronto, and London. I could probably talk for hours about the issue. If you’re interested maybe I’ll write a post about what I found!
In my spare time I try and dedicate some of it to non-profit groups. Lions Club International has given me a lot of opportunity to show my worth in the community. For a couple years I was a Lions mentor to a youth division called Toronto Hong Kong Leos. It was a blast working with them. Last year I helped them organize a singing competition and they raised well over $3000 in donations for SickKids hospital. I haven’t had that chance here in London yet, but I’m still looking for something that’ll suit me.
And that’s it! If you have any questions about anything I do or have a comment please leave it down below. You can also strike up a conversation with me on Twitter!
