July 1 was Canada Day, a celebration of the country’s coming of age. On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act, now called the Constitution Act, was enacted, uniting three colonies into a single country within the British Empire. It was aboot time to make everything come together, eh? Now pass me a Timbit so I can stay warm in my igloo.
In previous years, I’ve spent Canada Day watching fireworks, eating hamburgers and wearing a hoodie with an old pair of jean shorts. This year, though, I was flying back from Vancouver to Toronto. I may have missed the fireworks, but I had the chance to literally see half the country from up in the air.
Because not taking pictures of the view outside my window seat (score!) would be totally off social media trends, I decided to take several (on an actual camera. Don’t worry, I was not using cellular service). See the transition from afternoon, to evening, to night in the 16 photos below capturing the skies between Vancouver and Toronto, the Rocky Mountains (I can check “see the tops of the Rocky Mountains” off my bucket list, now) and some really great potential advertisement photographs for WestJet (just kidding):
A storyteller. That is how I would describe myself.
I love communicating with people using the written and spoken word as well as various multimedia. I am developing a career where I can use my journalistic, communication and project management skills daily.
Naturally, I love to write. I’m passionate about making a difference and fighting to make this world a comfortable place for everyone to live. A world without barriers, discrimination, standards of beauty, gender stereotypes, harassment, racism, disease…the list goes on and on.
I am a social media enthusiast and have extensive experience using Twitter, Facebook, blogs and LinkedIn to market brands and initiatives.
I recently completed the post-graduate Event Management program at Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning (ITAL), from which I have earned an Ontario Post-Graduate Certificate (PGC) in Event Management with honours. I am also a graduate of the Media Studies program at the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Applied Arts in Media Studies from the University of Guelph as well as a Diploma in Journalism from Humber College ITAL, both with distinction.
