I'm so excited about the opportunity to be recognized as a "Leading Girls Building Communities" award recipient for Waterloo Region. MPP Catherine Fife has been such a terrific supporter and I'm thrilled to have been nominated by Christine Tolton and to have the support of my family and my community.
Susan Cook-Sheerer interviewed us on Rogers TV daytime a few weeks ago and I am so happy to be able to talk about my passion for planet preservation and my support for AfriOceans Conservation Alliance.
I never dreamed I would win this award or appear on TV to talk about being an ocean warrior, but here I am!
My message to you is to believe in yourself even if you feel afraid and even if you have hurdles or obstacles. They are just opportunities to challenge you and help you stretch and grow in ways you never thought possible.
For our oceans and endangered marine animals and all the moms in the ocean and on land - Happy Mother's Day!
