Lina has worked in the field of education in various capacities – as an university instructor, educator and tutor for high school and elementary school students, workshop facilitator for adult learners, researcher and writer. She is a two-time Concordia graduate with master’s degrees in Educational Studies (2020) and Media Studies (2007).
