I had my last high school class this morning. And, I feel so proud to announce that I am finally a high school graduate! It feels surreal, scary, and absolutely heartwarming. While this year was filled with uncertainty there have been a lot of lessons that I will take away from this year that has been both invaluable and unforgettable.

Although we didn’t have in-person graduation or prom this year, I did have virtual graduation in which I got a little teary-eyed, to say the least. It felt wholesome watching memories from the past few years that felt like they…


When I wanted to get my work published, I searched the internet far and wide to find suitable places to submit. I would often be disappointed because of the lack of paid opportunities.

- Lilo and Stitch

Lilo and Stitch used to be my favourite movie growing up. The film’s story revolves around two eccentric and mischievous individuals: A six-year-old Hawaiian girl named Lilo Pelekai (pictured below on the right)—who is raised by her older, young adult-aged sister Nani after their parents died in a car accident—and a blue extraterrestrial animal-like creature called Experiment 626, who’s adopted by Lilo as…

Most people even know someone in their personal lives who have been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is horrifying and saddening, to say the least, but recent scientific developments have shown that we can do certain things to potentially reduce our risk of developing cancer, one of them being cutting down on our Acrylamide intake.

“Where are you from?”

I blinked once. Then twice.

Uhhh… Canada?

“No I mean, where are you really from?”

Of course, I knew what she really meant. She was asking me where my roots were from (or at least she was trying to ask) and being a first-generation Canadian, that meant where my parents were from.

Canada. I was born here.

I wasn’t satisfied with my answer and as her brows furrowed in response, I could…
