Gillian Farber


My name is Gillian Farber and I am a Communications graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University. I was born in Toronto, Ontario and was brought up in Thornhill, a suburb just north of the city. Throughout my University career I was a feature writer for the Wilfrid Laurier student newspaper, The Cord. Recognized as one of Canada's most important and read student publications I wrote on a weekly basis about student life on campus. After graduation, I taught English to Elementary school students in Gwangju, South Korea for 2 years which is also where I met my British husband. I moved to Brighton, England after my teaching stint in Korea and lived there for another 2 years. We were married in Toronto, Canada in September 2014 and now have a partner in crime to venture the world with.
