A certified Mom friend at the age of 20 years old. She lives on the Greyhound, travelling back and forth between Toronto and her hometown. She claims to be a poet and photographer, but is really just a person who spends too much time looking at pictures of black Scottish Fold cats who kind of resemble the dragon Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. Who can blame her? Co-founder and the Editor-in-Chief of The Northern Appeal, as well as an editor for The Goose. Her work has been featured in Vagabond City Lit, Hungry Boy, untethered mag, and The Strand. She fulfills her duty as a millennial  by being overly present on twitter and instagram.
