Where are you from? Toronto

What do you do? Day Job: Social Housing Manager / Night Job: Netflix and No-Chill Specialist

Do you consider yourself a freshman, sophomore or senior? Sophomore

What needs to happen before you can "graduate"? I can finally say I graduated when I can look back at marginalized communities in Toronto and see less stigma and stereotype surrounding the need for psychological support. In order to do that, I will need to finish this Masters!

What is your dream creative project? And what's stopping you from it? What do you need? Creating a program in the Afro-Canadian community where youth can receive psychological support for direct/in-direct contact to trauma. Many of these youths are overlooked, and then penalized later on in life for their behaviour, when they received no outlet support during their hardest times. There is nothing stopping me from getting this done, I'm on my way.

What's your strategy for creative block? Don't force it. Inspiration has no expiration date.

If your life was a movie what would be on the soundtrack? 90's R&B, remixes and dancehall

Where can we find you on a Friday night? Roaming the streets of Toronto looking for a new food spot.
