Startup Canada Awards

 

I raised enough money through my GoFundMe profile to attend the Startup Canada Awards on October 19th, 2017 in Ottawa, Ontario. I was nominated for the National Startup Canada Resilient Entrepreneur Award. Awarded to an entrepreneur with a visible or non-visible disability who has impacted Canadian entrepreneurship through exemplary activities and leadership of their companies.

Thank you to everyone who generously donated money, I hope it was worth the investment. I am extremely fortunate to have such amazing people around me who believe in who I am and what I offer the world.

 

And, the winner is…

My friend, Gene Fowler of Loogaroo Animation and Games once said:

Rock what you do and people will find you!

This quote stuck with me and I am living proof that Gene is right. Frustrated with the lack of local support I had to find innovative ways to reach a broader audience. In the last year, my profile has started to turn heads and garner positive attention internationally.
