I am passionate aboutI am passionate about positive change, growth, harmony, equality: growing
humanity. I believe we have so much in common that we fail to recognize, so
much we can learn from one another, so much we can grow from. We just have to
choose to see it and act. I know the immense potential of changing
perspectives and seeing things this way so I put my heart and soul into
helping open doors and minds for people around me in whatever way I can. When
one of us grows and prospers we all grow and prosper.
ActionsI'm an advocate, writer, photographer, a rallier, a mentor and collaborator.
My greatest contribution to date has been through my work as Global
Ambassador for World Merit (you can read about that below in the "leadership"
In my day-to-day life I raise awareness on important personal, local, and
global issues through my close personal and professional online and offline
networks with a reach of over 200,000 young people world wide.
Offline, I volunteer with several organizations and engage through my paid
work in the most meaningful ways possible. I have worked in law, politics and
advocacy and have a strong presence in the peace community in my home city
(Ottawa) but also abroad. I have been an initiating source for a Peace
Practitioner's Cafe and work closely with the Canadian International
Institute of Applied Negotiation and Afghanistan: Pathways to Peace to
promote personal empowerment toward the creation of a collaborative,
inclusive and more peaceful collective.
I take my work to the international level by working with young leaders
around the globe through World Merit & One Young World; engaging others on
this important topic across borders.
