I'm going to start by bragging.
I'm thrilled to say I was nominated for an Atlantic Journalism Award for Best Arts Reporting for this piece. I had such fun writing it, plus I actually learned about history. Not bad at all.
The award ceremony is next month in St. John's, and I'm going! I've never been to Newfoundland. I'll be there for a long weekend, and I'm looking forward to it all. It's past cliche at this point, but it really is an honour just to be nominated.
I also had a chance to speak with the co-founder of the Maritime Bhangra Group, who is one of the busiest and most genuine people I've ever met. We spoke for an hour about dancing, activism, and being a student. You can read all about it here and here.
Next month, I'm going to drive a race car, learn about Tai Chi, and even work on a secret project. I'm so excited to share it with you!
