Biography

I'm currently a first year student at the University of Ottawa, majoring in commerce with an option in Marketing.


I was born in Lima, Peru and lived there for 12 years until my parents decided to move to Canada in 2005. We started up living in a small town that is about 30-45 minutes to Toronto, called Whitby. When I first moved, it seemed like the end of the world, but Canada has become a part of me and I love living here. Since not a lot of people know about Peru and its culture, I decided to make my wiki on it.

The Peruvian flag is very similar to Canada's, except for the Coat of Arms used in the middle of the flag:

"The arms of the Peruvian Nation shall consist of a shield divided into three fields (Polish shape), one light-blue, to the left, which will carry a vicuña looking inwards; another white, on the right , where a cinchona tree will be located; and another red below and smaller in which a cornucopia will be seen spilling coins, signifying with these symbols, the richnesses of Peru in the three natural kingdoms."

- Congressmen José Gregorio Paredes and Francisco Javier Cortés.
