I recently completed my Master’s degree at the University of Waterloo, in environmental studies. I believe that human development has drastically altered the environment and that people are extremely affected by the changing environment, but I also believe that people have the power and ability to develop in favor of the planet rather than working against it. I want to be part of the movement toward a sustainably developing planet, bringing synchronicity to economic resilience, social well-being and the environmental integrity to transform current societies into societies that are not only environmentally sustainable, but are also culturally sustainable

I have my BA in Communications from Concordia University and am currently working in the film industry. I have a passion for the environment and I believe that every action we do and every measure we take has an impact in one way or another. The future of our planet depends on everybody doing their part and even the smallest actions count.
About our Site
Progress over Perfection means that you don’t need a select few people doing climate justice work perfectly, but when you have many many people doing something, you can really make powerful changes. We, as individuals don’t have to do everything and do everything right, but instead, we have so much power together, doing the best we each can. So here we are, doing the best that we can, in a world seemingly more divided and grim than ever. Here we are, despite it all, or possibly even because of it all, making the small yet powerful strides that we can. There is so much in this world that needs to get done, that needs to be fixed, that needs to be set right, but if you throw yourself in too deep, you will drown, and the movement will lose a very important fighter (we are all important!). Always focus on what you can do, rather than doing everything! So come with us on this journey building toward a better world ❤
