The Synchronicity of Bliss

I played bridge during most of my first semester at UBC and dropped out at Christmas. A family friend, Pierre Berton advised me to go back, have fun and take anything exciting. I studied everything from Shakespeare to the San Andreas fault, interstellar communications to First Nations jokes told to me by Chief Dan George and Dominic Charlie. Later, in the media I was assigned a story on the San Andreas Fault and loved working with First Nations at the Commonwealth Games. Follow your bliss!
