My attraction to an urban village is probably the result of our family moving every couple of years when I was a child. I have a built-up longing for deep roots and knowing my neighbours. Location is a big deal for me. I’m a walker and an urban location means strolling to Main Street for coffee with a friend or hitting the library and community centre. I love art, really long walks like the Camino Real and I’m a relentless reader. I like lively conversation, but also need time to myself.
I grew up in bustling Mexico City in a large, loving family. When I came to Canada, I wanted to have the same sense of shared community that I experienced in Mexico. I've never lived alone and have always found a way to live among friends in large shared houses. I love the city (my degree is in urban planning!). I bike everywhere, and don't own or plan to own a car. I'm looking forward to my next step in community living at Our Urban Village.
I grew up in Alberta and came to the Vancouver area 11 years ago to train for a second career. I fell in love with this city and decided to stay despite leaving my friends and family behind. Cohousing is the best of worlds for me in that I can enjoy close relationships and support within this community, but still have my own space when I need some quiet time. I’m a recent ebike commuter and enthusiast! I enjoy theatre (especially musicals), knitting, reading and tap dancing
