Let’s engage, educate & celebrate community together

 

My Mission


Promoting curiosity, communication and engagement in making Calgary a stronger and better place to live, to be educated, do business, promote innovation and community celebration. I will accomplish this mission by creating a free magazine and media program which will be the online storytelling hub for Calgary. This magazine and media program will also support and be supported by various community organizations, businesses, social media networking groups and channels along with schools and individuals.

 

 

About Community Now! Magazine


I have learned that as we share stories about innovation, education and careers, the youth of today are becoming more engaged in building our communities of now and tomorrow. I want to grow and expand on the storytelling that is inspiring community building by all of its members. We need to encourage our community and provide the right resources to them so that they can thrive as we all grow and learn. Community Now! is about community, for community, by community. This magazine is a resource to promote curiosity, communication and engagement in making Calgary a stronger and better place to live, be educated, do business and promote innovation and community celebration.
