Emma’s thesis project, The Art of Chaos, a mental health documentary licensed by the CBC, connected her with Jack.org. Eventually, she was lucky enough to find a position that fit her skill set, and she’s been here ever since. Emma’s job is to unify and amplify the voice and accomplishments of our amazing youth network. From Instagram to LinkedIn, she gets to share the revolutionary initiatives that our young leaders are tackling all across Canada, while fostering a strong digital community for those leaders to thrive in. Emma is inspired by the stories that she gets to share thanks to our incredible network—stories of people speaking up about their mental health and about the support that they deserve. It's these stories and the incredible people behind them that will lead us to a future where no one is judged for struggling with their mental health, and everyone has access to support. Emma’s go-to karaoke song is anything Shania Twain. She hears "let's go girls" and *poof* she’s wearing cowboy boots and leopard print.
