I enjoy the small things in life; sitting on a patio, having a drink at the lake, enjoying a savoury dinner, and drinking dark black coffee. But at the same time, I have always been an introvert for most of my life and although this has changed as I have gotten older, I still enjoy my own autonomy and time to myself.
I am a advocate for social justice, having spent over ten years of my life dedicated to aboriginal justice, refugee and displacement issues and working to highlight the use of sweatshop labour by companies that have public sector contracts. Recently, I worked on the Bernie Sanders campaign in Flint, Michigan. I also volunteered for him in Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. I care about indigenous rights, income inequality and ending inequity in all of its forms. But I am really quite unassuming - most people would be surprised to hear the things I have done in my life, and if they don't ask, I usually keep that list to myself.
