Who am I?
Hi, I’m Camille! I’m a born and raised in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada. I’m a professional storyteller (yes, I’ve been paid to tell stories), and human-centred designer by trade. I’ve always known that writing was in my blood: it’s been a great way to practice self care, make sense of my life, and share my ideas with the world. I hope that my stories will inspire you to practice courage, compassion, and creativity.
What’s this blog about?
I started seriously writing in this blog when I was in a transitional period between student and conventional working adult. Life been a really interesting, emotional, inspiring, and revealing journey. I’ve gone through rejection, doubt, fear, and complacency. But I’ve also experienced happiness, fulfillment, and a deeper and truer sense of self. I know that there are other 20-somethings (or anybody else for that matter) going through the same thing. I hope that my thoughts, these little glimpses into my life, will help you realize that you are not alone in this. It’s okay to not know what’s going to happen next, or take that soul-sucking job only to quit months later, or watch your friends get married while you try to find your better half. It’s okay that you feel angry or lost or confused about your life. I sure as hell have been, and I know I’ll feel this way again. (Emotions come in cycles.) It’s okay that these things happen to you, because they happen for a reason. They teach you that you should listen to your gut and follow your heart. They set you up for some of the most transformative years of your life.
I think you’re cool/I want to talk to you/I want to offer you the job of your dreams.
I think you’re cool, too/I’d like that/Wow really? Anyway, you can use the Contact Form to send me a message. I welcome anything from praise to criticism to Leslie Knope compliments.
