Elina was born and raised in Latvia, a small country in Eastern Europe. Even though Latvia has its own hockey team—Riga Dinamo—playing in the KHL, she didn’t become interested in hockey until she moved to Canada in 2011. Her boyfriend is an amateur hockey player and an avid Maple Leafs fan, and the more Elina watched hockey, the more she learnt to appreciate the sport. Even though she can barely stand on skates and has only mastered slowly skating around the rink, Elina is looking forward to improving her skills. Elina is passionate about languages, visual media, writing, and crafts. Prior to moving to Canada, she was working as a translator and interpreter. She graduated from Okanagan College with a diploma and certificate in communications, and is pursuing a career in writing and media. When she is not busy preparing media content or conducting research, you can find her doing various crafts with a cup of tea by her side, cuddling her two cats, watching horror movies and crime shows, reading, and cooking Latvian dishes.
