WHAT ARE THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE OUR CITY?
WHAT IS YOUR HEART + SOUL MEDICINE ? [AKA: YOUR SELF-LOVE REMEDIES]
H: when I’m feeling overwhelmed with work or juggling multiple projects the simple things are the best; long walks in nature, dog watching, listening to music + dancing around my living room to Bhangra. as a British lady, I obviously cannot go without my cup of tea + a good book.
PUT YOURSELF BACK IN THE SHOES OF YOUR 15-YEAR-OLD SELF, WHAT WOULD YOU SHARE WITH 15-YEAR-OLDS OF 2020?
H: no one is a finished product. you are constantly growing + evolving + it’s okay to make mistakes. you will become whatever you tell yourself + not what others tell you. your potential needs confidence, hard work + belief in yourself in order to be realized. be kind to yourself.
IF YOU COULD PAINT A VISION FOR CALGARY'S FUTURE, WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE ?
H: my hope is that Calgary continues to thrive + evolve culturally despite the uncertainty of the pandemic + the economic downturn. I envision this city to be a place where the Arts are given more importance, a place where artists from all over the world are given a platform to showcase their story + talents. there are incredible people in this city + I hope that we are able to celebrate our differences + oneness.
