Why did you decide to join spark?
I attended a spark event and had three main reasons for wanting to join. One I am all for anything that makes a real difference in real lives and I knew that spark was doing that. Two, I love seeing women rise to the table and step into leadership and I saw that in both attendees and in the community projects. Thirdly, I was so inspired by the company of women that spark collects. I am passionate about being amidst the company of empowered women.
What have you learned from being a spark member?
I am new, but what I’ve learned most, so far, is that when women come together in person and to join their voices, their resources, and their networks, they are an unstoppable force. I believe this with my whole being — and I learned it even being among these women in spark.
Why would you recommend spark?
I am so thankful that this initiative is happening in Ottawa and I am so thankful that I get to be a part of it. If you want to be a part of a vibrant, diverse group of women who are leaders in their spheres and are stepping up to be leaders in their community, this is for you. You’ll be impacted in their presence and you’ll get to impact our local community too. I mean, this is a good, good thing.
