Showcasing the beauty of the human spirit - in mid air - around the world


"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life...if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be." - Roald Dahl

Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
 I’m a storyteller and a social entrepreneur. Recently I’ve been named by Huffington Post as one of three Aboriginal Millennials to watch, and have been selected as a DiverseCity Fellow for 2013-2014. I have over eight years as a published writer, and have been published in The Guardian, CBC Arts, and THIS Magazine. I graduated from York University with a degree in Professional Writing.

I’ve had a blog for over six years, Urban Native Girl, which led me to launch Urban Native Magazine. This Native lifestyle magazine is an extension of the blog to showcase success stories and to inspire Indigenous youth to dream big.
