Small Girl, Medium City

I wanted to write a quick post to share with you my interview on the inspiring Toronto website, Small Girl, Medium City. An old university classmate, Laura Armstrong, asked me if she could interview me for a new segment she was doing on the site. The section is a new one and it’s called FIO– Figure it-Out. In her first post, she explains it as: “a space where young women living in Toronto looking to start their careers can go to for guidance from women who have ‘been there’.

Laura goes on to explain why she wanted to blog about career-driven young women starting out in the big city: “When I first moved to Toronto at 23, I didn’t have a clue as to what I wanted to do with my life. I was fresh out of university and just needed a job for ‘the time being.’ So I did what most girls in my position do, I took a full-time serving job. It took me some time to get out of that server job and into a career I enjoyed. I know I could have gotten here sooner (with a lot less mistakes) if I had guidance from someone who had been in my shoes.”

The concept is great, and of course I wanted to offer any advice I could. I remember being in the exact position Laura describes; it’s daunting. It would have been extremely helpful to have a big sister or a mentor to ask advice, and I would have loved to have had access to something like FIO at that stage in my life. Heck, I can still learn a ton from so many successful women my age now. We all need to support one another and grow with one another. I’m eager to read  next Wednesday’s interview!

Laura and the crew at Small Girl, Medium City are amazing and I thank them so much for including me on their site! Check out my interview here and let me know what you think!
