As a little girl, Ella Maggay realized early on in life that her left-handedness would cause her to never understand math. Instead, she found refuge in the performing arts and letters, which led her to do her B.A. in Communication Studies. Her Sagittarius rising took her to live in many places: Montreal, Santiago, Los Angeles, Seoul, Bonn, Manila, and Ottawa. She has worked as a language teacher, dance teacher and editor. She displays enormous willpower and determination except when a dark, black coffee is involved.
