Sheal is a graduate from Centennial College’s Operations Management program and Ryerson University’s Bachelor of Commerce program in Toronto, Ontario. Following her passion for travel, culture and adventure her journey took her to Japan to teach English for over two years. The experience of exploring Japan, South East Asia and Australia, learning Japanese calligraphy and climbing to the top of Angkor Wat to view the sunset, motivated Sheal to Toronto to continue her quest as a teacher. She enrolled and graduated from York University’s Bachelor of Education program and has taught in various socio-economic communities in Toronto. Sheal’s continued interest in Buddhist studies inspired her to spend a summer in Hawaii where she was drawn to learn more about Qigong, yoga and cultural diets that now infuse into her daily life. She enjoys creating collage art using Washi paper, cooking and reading both fiction and non-fiction books. In 2012, Sheal taught English and reading classes to grade 4, 5 and 6 students at Kidheykar Lower Secondary School, just outside of Mongar.
