October 29, 2013
The AVA team expands even further with four new pretty faces to introduce to you all.
First of all I would like to introduce Nerys Williams to you, Nerys is originally from Newport in South Wales and studied Chinese at the University of Leeds. Nerys spent her second year in Shanghai, absorbing and loving the culture as well as broadening her Chinese speaking skills. To add to her list of language skills, Nerys speaks fluent Mandarin, French and German! Nerys has enjoyed the past year living and teaching English in Hong Kong and as Nerys will tell you it was a fabulous opportunity and experience.
Nerys has a very soft and calming nature and she loves an adventure and travelling, she has spent the past year travelling around Asia and relishing every moment of it. Nerys also likes her sports and has been making the most of the local Cheshire countryside hiking and jogging regularly. To balance her sporting/social activities Nerys loves going into Manchester at the weekends for some city life. I think Nerys has found her perfect balance between country and city life! ‘croeso i Nerys tîm AVA’
