Back in the summer I was informed that I was chosen as one of these top 40 which is pretty cool, but it had to be kept a secret until now.
Yesterday evening I attended a gala at the Winspear along with the other award recipients. Everything became public at that point.
After having gone through a main interview and a few more subsequent fact checking ones, along with a photo shoot, it is interesting to see what pieces of information they decided to focus on and their interpretation. Here is the full page article that is appearing in the November issue of the magazine:
There are a lot of amazing people in Edmonton. Even the mayor came out to event (he was part of the judging panel).
I have lived in Edmonton my entire life and love what I do. It is great to be recognized for accomplishments and I can definitely say I am still having fun!
