  • It was a true pleasure welcoming you as our MC for the 3rd Annual YMCA Voices Film Festival. Your youthful demeanor, humor and energy were just the right fit for us and watching you speak so precisely, so eloquently and without a script was truly inspiring. Your speech was bang-on. Some of the staff pointed out how well you were able to connect all of your topics back to the project, the festival and the youth, all on the spot. At such a young age, you are clearly an experienced professional. You were my first and only choice for MC this year and I can't tell you how happy I was to learn you wanted to be part of our event. You embody all the qualities I look for in an MC - young, diverse, Canadian-born or child of immigrants, working in the entertainment industry. Your interaction with the audience and the youth was amazing.
