Currently I am working as the Creative Content Lead with the Bay Street Journal, where I work closely with influencers and leaders in the entertainment, lifestyle and design, business, and finance industries. My main responsibility involves creating coherent and consistent content across our social media platforms, especially Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I’m so incredibly excited for the publication and AI platform to fully come together and I’m really looking forward to more people joining the team, especially when it comes to bringing together writers for our writing team!
The Bay Street Journal is a premium publication that strives to introduce young dynamic professionals to one another. Together, we envision a strong network of influential individuals who can share and build upon each other’s experiences. If you are interested in learning about our growing community of elite dreamers, creators, composers, and disruptors, it starts here!
I wrote the following pieces while I was interning at BCS Group as an editorial assistant. I was responsible for running the front desk and was encouraged to take initiative and hone my communication skills and attentiveness. The company ran magazines intended for the disabled community, so I was able to develop skills to sensitively interact with individuals who have a very different perspective and lifestyle than me, which was incredibly insightful.
In my last year of high school, I was also honoured with the Pierre Berton Senior Poetry Award, for an altered version of my slam poem “I, Hestia”, which was awarded out of all the senior grades at Earl Haig Secondary School.
Most humbling for me however, was being awarded the Heather Patterson Scholarship, which is given to the female student who has contributed the most to the English department of Earl Haig Secondary School. I was in all the classes the English department had to offer, including Literature Studies and Writer’s Craft. I had contributed and competed in high school slam poetry competitions, volunteered in events hosted by the English department, volunteered at the school library during my spares, and maintained an 85+ average in all my classes to do with English. I really owe this all to the amazing teachers and my colleagues who supported me throughout my high school career and provided me with inspiration and motivation to continue what I was doing.
To mark the end of my high school year, I was able to participate in my high school yearbook, which is famous for being one of the best produced yearbooks in the GTA. I was the Literature Arts Editor, so I was able to partake in the process of choosing pieces submitted to the Pierre Berton Competition in all the sections and design the spread it would go on. It s a pain staking process but I was glad because I finally got to put my grade 10 award for Communications Technology to good use. I was pretty satisfied with the end result!
