My name is Laoura, I love to learn and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, especially if it allows me to meet new people. I moved to the US when I was 13 years old, so I'm familiar with the process of learning a new language and understand the amount of patience that is needed when teaching something new. I graduated with Honors from the City College of New York, and obtained a double major in Communication and International Studies. I'm a huge fan of anything related to Global/World History, and did I mention I am a native French speaker?!
Working at NBCUniversal, I was the most senior sales assistant, therefore I played an instrumental role in training and on-boarding new hires. This extended into my day-to-day, and I became a mentor to many who would come to me for help in understanding media concepts, or resolving problems. Therefore, I am used to relaying information to various audiences and tailoring messages so the audience receives it well.
