We The Inspired

Soon after arriving in Toronto I was very fortunate to meet Nadia George, an inspiring and talented social entrepreneur and actor. After getting in touch we decided to collaborate on a photo series of her new indigenous clothing line We The Inspired, she even got me involved as a model, something that I have not really done before.

Any photos of me in it were taken by the absolutely fantastic Stacey Johnson.

Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators

The Salzburg Global Seminar’s forum for Young Cultural Innovators was hands down one of the most amazing experiences that I have had the privilege to be a part of.

The SGS has been around for 70 years, bringing some of the brightest minds in the world together to change the world through culture, creativity, and innovative thinking. This year they brought together 50 of the top Young Cultural Innovators from around the world for 5 days to learn from powerful change makers, discuss challenges and ideas, and grow strong relationships with others from around the world to help us all in our journeys of creating positive social change.

The week was exhausting, but so powerful, and lit an even bigger fire in my belly.

Haida Gwaii Youth Assembly 2017

The Haida Gwaii Youth Assembly is an amazing event that happens every year where settler and Haida youth from across Haida Gwaii come together to learn about the governance of the Haida Nation, and complete in a series of challenges to grow, laugh, and build relationships that will last a lifetime.

This is our 5th year and I was asked to come back again to lead the youth media team in creating a short documentary that highlights a 3-day event, and a fun music video. Our media team are comprised of talented teenagers that work tirelessly over the weekend to produce videos that will be looked back on for years.
