Living in America by A Canadian

Since moving to the United States, I have been more grateful than ever for my Canadian nationality. I consistently go out of my way to tell people that I am Canadian, as the response is always one of joy and often accompanied with an “I LOVE Canadians” claim and the odd “eh” joke. Read more

Pink Shirt Day: Stand Up To Bullying in Style

On February 22nd, Canadians from coast to coast will wear pink to show their support against bullying. The annual Pink Shirt Day event was launched after two Nova Scotian teens decided to wear pink in support of a fellow student who had been bullied for wearing pink.

What Being a Woman Means to Me

I have spent so much of my life idolizing famous women in popular culture. Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Michelle Obama, Bianca Jagger, Beyoncé, the list goes on and on.

15 Minutes of Fame

Warhol was right – We’re all getting our 15 minutes.

“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes” – Andy Warhol

Often quoted words from Andy Warhol have never been more true. Warhol was an avant garde artist through the 1970s and 1980s and is often credited for leading the pop art movement. Perhaps we should consider adding prophet to his list of accolades as it seems he predicted decades ago what we are starting to see unfold now – everyone having a shot at their 15 minutes of fame.
