Last spring I did an interview with the amazing Kelly Lovell, who has her own TV Show on Rogers. She and I were presenters at TEDxWaterloo Youth in 2013. She has a great message to share and is making a real difference in our community and in our world to inspire youth.
One of the things I noticed about myself in the interview I did with Kelly is that sometimes the thoughts in my head didn't always come out as smoothly as I wanted them to. The message I wanted to share was there though. Kelly was a great interviewer and really helped me feel comfortable along the way.
I've learned that my message is the most important thing and that I love being asked to present and to give interviews. It is my way of sharing my passion for our oceans and protecting endangered marine animals.
I need to give a voice to those that can't speak for themselves -- marine animals and especially sharks that are being needlessly killed.
So, here's my thought for you on this Friday and as I prepare to do a TV interview on Rogers this morning with MPP Catherine Fife: life is not perfect. We need to do our best and share what is in our hearts. If we do this, we won't be weighed down by the regrets of "what ifs".
We all have a light inside of us with ideas and dreams to share. Even if your delivery isn't perfect, your passion and enthusiasm will always win out and help inspire others!
Here's a link to my interview with Kelly Lovell on the Youth Effect show.
