Growing confidence starts with removing barriers.

“I’m an actor, a comedian and an improviser. I did a small part in the movie Spotlight and I'm an alumnus of the Second City Toronto Mainstage. The arts are an important area for people to nurture their skillset for creativity and critical thinking; to not just take everything that’s handed to you; but to develop your own opinions and to have confidence in your approach. I’ve taught improv to CEOs and I’ve taught children. You don’t need the goal of being an artist or a performer. It’s about learning how to work with others and not let fear become the barrier.”

“One of the things I learned at the University of Guelph was inclusivity; to learn about all of these different cultures and different genders and different experiences. It’s an opportunity for us to connect and say; ‘Hey, we’re all people, and we all have valid and interesting experiences that are worth sharing.’”
