Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost her…

The woman and girl I used to be… She used to live on the edge, she used to take me everywhere, and she always had something to experience. She craved adventure and loved the thrill. She made mistakes, but always learned her lessons. Every chapter of her life was filled with richness. But one day, […]

What do you do now?

The biggest question we get asked as adults is, “What do you want to do with your life?”. I thought the answer would be in plain sight of me. I thought if I finish school, I’d figure it out. “So what do you want to do?”; What if I don’t know? We are all looking […]

Learning Indirectly

There are always ways you learn things; it can be through a book, a teacher, by following the steps of a role model, or by making a mistake. The list is endless.

Find Something to Care About

Before getting involved with Muscular Dystrophy Canada, I spent a year volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society. I have heard stories and met individuals that have truly inspired me to push, and fight harder. Just like MD, cancer has many problems with no solutions; answers, but no short cuts.
