NOTA BENE 
 
Art:  As  eclectic  as  my  past  ventures,  my  artistic  endeavours  span  paper,  pen,  piano,  and  print  (to  name  a  select  alliterative  few). 
Having  been  on  the  receiving  end  of  social  and  mental  health  services  myself,  I  have become a whimsically macabre artist. Employers 
in  the  creative  arts  are  humbly  invited  to  visit  becousican.weebly.com  both  for  samples  of  my  work  and  to  assess  my  aptitude  for  web 
design.  at  its  candid  nature  not  detract  from  my  application,  I  would  kindly  re uest  that my website serve as a lens through which 
to witness my transformation from patient to professional.  
 
Language:  Having  always  considered  it  an  easy  and  enjoyable  task  to learn languages, the breadth of my polyglotism is a labile medley 
temporally  contingent  upon  my  location.  In  California,  I  spoke  Spanish;  in  Malta,  Maltese;  Turkey,  Turkish.  As  an  undergraduate,  I 
studied  Arabic,  Farsi,  Japanese,  Kurdish,  and  Mandarin.  When  cooped  within  the  con nes  of  a  public  commute,  I  peruse  German. 
Withal, I speak French to near uency.  
 
Travel:  An  avid  social  butter y,  my  insatiable  (read:  reckless)  wanderlust  has  led  me to over forty of the United states and nearly  y 
countries.
