As you know, I’ve been proudly involved with meeting with other women in the industry! In celebration of International Women’s Day TWIM got a feature in Noisey that I think is worth a read.
Finding a community of supportive women has kept me going and motivated the past 6 months and I get excited every time somebody new comes to an event. The stories of how people arrived at their paths are always so fascinating!
A few months ago, someone made a Facebook event asking all of Toronto’s music industry to gather together at Trinity Bellwoods Park for a photo. Well, it happened yesterday and hundreds of people showed up. The result is above!
My friend Stephen and I pre-shoot.
The lovely Rochelle Latinsky also took this lovely headshot of me.
Although there was a great turnout, I do wish that there was a bit more diversity in the photo. I’m 99% sure that I am the only Asian and I don’t see many people of colour. This is somewhat reflectant of how the industry is, but not what it should/could be. I do know many different types of people in the industry, let’s hope that next year they show up!
