This past December I returned home to beautiful Golden Lake after 4.5 years of studying Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University - and what a long 4.5 years it was! While I was away it took me just about that long to realize that it wasn't the math, the calculations and formulae, or even the theories that brought me joy. It was much more than that. What I really enjoyed were the challenges, the friendly competition, being exposed to new ideas and technologies, and working with my classmates to solve problems.
I came back wanting to have a bigger voice and to use my knowledge and know how to bring a positive experience to this unique area I call home. I talked with Megan to see what TEDxAlgonquinPark was all about. It seemed like a pretty neat opportunity - exactly what I was looking for. I welcomed TEDxAlgonquinPark as a new challenge and an opportunity to really get to know my neighbours and connect with my community.
I am so excited and pleased to have been accepted, along with Megan, to the TEDxSummit in Doha, Qatar. At this week long conference we will be proudly representing the Ottawa Valley while meeting with other TEDx organizers to spark up new conversations and get inspired. We can't wait to return home full of ideas and to share a great experience with you at TEDxAlgonquinPark in September.
