THE CARD – Grants Received for Film!

Thank you so much to the Windsor Endowment for the Arts for granting me the Emerging Artist in Visual Arts Award! I’m so honoured and humbled to be in the company of these wonderfully talented people! Also, massive thank you to Nuha Elalem, Svjetlana Oppen, Kim Nelson and Marty Gervais for all your help along the way!

On the WEA website, they wrote a little bio about me. It reads:

“This recent graduate of the University of Windsor and Ryerson University not only embraces the community we live in, she uses it to inspire reflections on diversity, perception, and human interaction. Through the medium of film, she tackles big issues with simplistic, impactful, story-telling that encourages her audience to think and feel. Stay tuned for her film, The Card, coming soon to our community.”

Thanks, WEA!!

The Windsor Star wrote about the award ceremony, too! Below is a photo of me they included.
