Here’s our chat with her

I was born in Malawi and moved to Vancouver BC when I was 4. I grew up in the lower mainland and moved to Whistler in 2008. I now live in Pemberton.
2. What is your definition of strength?
Someone who has the ability to view the world and put their bias aside, learn new things every day and shift their world views so they can evolve to continue to make the world a better, just and inclusive place for everyone to live. This includes animals, people both young and old, rocks, trees and soil included!
3. What is something that’s important to you now that never used to be?
Connecting with my heritage. I grew up in a white society but always felt a bit different as I am part Indian, African and Austrian. Connecting with my ancestry in all areas is now very important to me.

Bohemian by night and wannabe Eileen Fisher by day! Maybe a little wannabe hipster on the weekend 🙂 I dream of wearing tutus!
