About Me: I am a mother, a student, a theatrical stagehand, a union executive, a feminist, and an activist living in Ottawa, Canada.

I am constantly learning and love to meet people. It is empowering to talk to women and understand their perspective on their corner of the globe; women share so many commonalities, and the love of the arts is universal. As the arts play such an important role worldwide, I am interested in finding out more about what can be done to aid development, create equality, reduce/eradicate gender violence, and promote peace. I am also very interested in labour relations, fair trade, ethical trade and living wages. I will be attending St. Paul's University in Ottawa, Canada for Conflict Studies starting in September.

My Passions: Travel, reading, music, theatre, dance, writing

My Challenges: Scheduling and organization

My Vision for the Future: A coming together to celebrate our commonalities, not our differences.

My Areas of Expertise: Research, writing, networking, PR, theatre

Hi Nilima,

Thank you for the welcome to Pulse Wire and for the well-wishes for school. I was a little nervous to share my story, as it is so personal compared to many of the stories here of women who assist their community or region.

I am really enjoying reading everyone's profiles, and look forward to hearing more amazing stories.

Cheers, Pax Feminina

Thank you for your comments and your journal entry on your current prime minister. I like to think of myself as well-informed but have become so obsessed with our politics here in the US with upcoming elections in November that I have neglected keeping myself infomed of our neighbor to the north. Best of luck in your studies. I wish I could go back to school again.
