Pj Kwong is a self-proclaimed Word Broker who goes by the motto: I read them. I write them. I speak them. A fascination with other languages and a bilingual start to her education has helped carve a successful career as a PA announcer at 5 Olympic Games among many other events. The 25+ years as a figure skating coach has enabled her to talk skating in depth happily on CBC since 2007. The person rather than the accomplishments is how she approaches her subjects and her life.
