"I came to Canada when I was 12 and grew up in Toronto and Oshawa for the majority of my youth.
went to Calgary for university in Christian studies as my passion is to
work for the church and for communities in need. I worked for Calgary's
largest homeless shelter for a year and that is where I found my
passion for those who are in need.
I came to know Sky's the
Limit through Youth in Motion as I was one of the lucky ones to receive
a desktop from Sky's the Limit.
I love the idea of helping people with a set goal and I am very fortunate to be a part of this great team."
