Love Is Series:
I hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Alberta in Strategic Management and Organization. While pursuing my degree, I attended a Creative Non-Fiction Writing class that changed my life in many ways. Prior to this class, I knew I had a love for writing, for my fondest childhood memories were of my sisters gathering in a circle around me in our basement, with their eyes wide open in anticipation, listening to my out-of-this-world stories.
However, it wasn’t until I enrolled in this Creative Non-Fiction Writing class that I discovered my PASSION for writing. It was the first time that homework felt like a hobby, and attending class felt like I was residing in a place of comfort, and not within an institution. Upon completion of my course, my professor suggested I continue to write and pursue a career in writing. I thought he was just being ‘nice’….until he nominated me for ‘The University of Alberta Bookstore WRITE 200-level Prize in Non-Fiction Writing’ award. I was speechless. As I accepted my award, a voice within me was telling me that this would only be the beginning of something much larger. This blog, I believe, is the start of that ‘something much larger.’
