Name: Cristina Bernal

Occupation: volunteer for different organizations in the Cowichan Valley

Age: 35

Hometown: Besalu, Spain

If you get a chance go see: Captain Phillips. It is a good movie if you like action and intensity

Right now I am reading: The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle

I’m listening to: Spanish romantic melodies

At least once everyone should try: A trip to the Saltspring market and visit local vineyards

Most people don’t know I: am not as outgoing as everyone thinks. I am a little bit shy

Proudest or happiest moment: Everything since I crossed the border three years ago

Biggest fear: to have my permanent resident application rejected

Before I die: bring my entire family and best friends to Canada for a month visit

Words I live by: work hard, don’t ever give up on people or projects that mean so much to you
