To coincide with rapper Infu’s THINKIN BOUT U track release today, here’s the full, unscripted interview I recently had with him.
It was a full house at Dais in Toronto on Wednesday night; fostering connections between Toronto and London’s music scenes was the topic of discussion.
Thousands took part in Toronto’s International Pillow Day Fight at Nathan Phillip’s Square yesterday. The annual event also took place in over 50 cities around the world.
In the short essay I submitted as part of my Canada C3 application, I chose to reflect on a theme which resonates with me on a personal level: diversity and inclusion.
I am from the most diverse city in the world. Toronto – a metropolis where over half of the residents, my parents included, are born outside of Canada.
Yet as a young child, I didn’t realize how unique this environment was. I had no idea that growing up amongst mainly first-generation peers whose parents had come from countries such as Sri Lanka, Poland, Egypt and China wasn’t common in many other parts of Canada.
I took multiculturalism for granted.
Thousands marched along Toronto’s busiest streets yesterday in honour of International Women’s Day.
