In case you haven't heard I have been in series development for a show called Karma Camera, which for the moment lives online on my MuchMusic page. The show has been inspired by my love of storytelling and my fascination with travel, adventure, women and well, people. It's all about connecting people and exposing our beautiful truths. We're looking at the dreams, fears, failures and talents of young Canadians. It's not JUST about celebrities. Well, not all the time anyway.
I'm excited about the idea that an in-depth conversation with the person sitting next to you on the streetcar can be just as interesting and inspirational as an evening with Lady Gaga. It's about opening your heart a little wider and experiencing something brand new.
I've been speaking to a lot of other young Canadian girls about who they are and who they are becoming. Body image is a topic that comes up again and again, not surprising since it's such a layered and complicated issue for everyone. Women AND men. Young AND old. Believe it or not my own quest for a healthy, balanced, positive body image continues, so I decided to take Karma Camera on the road to a retreat in Costa Rica called Love Your Body. In the spirit of Karma Camera research I'm about to love my body even more than ever and test its skills while I'm exploring Del Mar Surf Camp. I challenge you to do the the same. Follow me on Twitter and I'll keep you updated on my time at the retreat.
