Just like the title says, I meet the most INCREDIBLE people, thanks to Lady Luck. Words can not express how grateful I am!
This incredible human came to see me for some headshots a few weeks ago.
We had a GREAT time.
Having your photos taken can sometimes be stressful. So I like to make sure the experience is a SUPER FUN one!
At first Leela was unsure of how to feel about having her photos taken. This is a very common feeling for most of my clients. And boy do I ever understand this feeling.
After receiving her preview gallery, Leela sent me this:
"There are so many good photos - something I have NEVER said before about photos of me!"
I jumped out of my chair and did a happy dance after reading this. I can not tell you how happy this made me! :D
MAN I LOVE what I do!
I really wanted to take the opportunity to share with you all, more about this incredible woman and what she does, so I asked her to send me her bio so I could do just that!
Here is her bio and some of the photos we took on our day together!
Leela was born into a family that believed everyone needed to do their best to make the world a better place for all. She has depended on the wisdom of those ancestors and more recent mentors to develop a practice based on valuing each person's cultural and social wealth, honoring the earth on which we live, and working to acknowledge and rectify past wrongs committed in this world.
She has lived a life between cultures and countries, one of the few multiracial children born in 1960’s London (UK). She was taught she had a duty to work for justice and use what privilege she has for good. Leela immigrated with her family to Ontario in the 1970’s when “Where are you from” was one of the most common questions.
For the past thirty years, she has worked on issues of equity and inclusion at universities in Canada and the United States. In March 2023, she was excited and privileged to be starting a new chapter with the opening of her independent consulting business. She looks forward to partnering with new people and institutions seeking to move their organizations beyond buzzwords to a holistic re-examination of their place in Canada today. It will require hard work, but in the words of Arundhati Roy “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
She loves to see these values reflected in her four children, now ages 22 through 29.
