In the past three weeks we have been working with Joanna MacDonald and the youth of Rigolet Labrador, making a film on “Life in Rigolet”. It was a crazy experience because I had commitments I had made with Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada and University of British Columbia along with this project with had with the youth.
It is always nice to know that people enjoy the work that you do and follow the work that we are doing. Looking at the statistics on this site, it seems to be getting a growing number of visitors.
It was a really great experience to work with the youth and the people here, learning some new slangs they use. Yes by? Nah boy.
Now that 3 out of 4 commitments I have made are now done, I’m ready to start this as an actual business. And during my time here, my goal was to let the youth know that as long as they believe in the work they do, they can achieve it. I honestly feel that it sounds cheesy to me. But I also tell myself that all the things that I successfully achieved all came from telling myself that I can do it. It’s hard to explain, because I feel like I’m bragging about the things that I’m doing, because that’s not what I’m trying to do. It seems like I’m successful because I keep telling myself, the only thing that’s going to stop me is me. See that? I feel like I’m bragging at too many things.
All I’m trying to say is that I came from nowhere. Thinking of all the things that I have done in just two years. During the presentation I was thinking to myself, I came from nothing. I would have never seen myself travelling all over Canada, showing off my work to strangers that have no clue who I am. Playing my videos in universities. I could care less if they liked my video or not. The only thing that matters to me, is that I achieved something I wanted to do. I always envied my classmates travelling for vacation, travelling for school stuff. Now? I’ve been travelling every month for 7 months for Konek Productions.
Everybody says this “Believe in yourself” but do we think of actually believing ourselves? It’s possible. I came from nothing, but now I’m here.
