Join us in welcoming and getting to know Holy Linton, our new basic needs coordinator.
A bit about myself …
I am from a tropical and beautiful country, Madagascar. English is my third language. I speak Malagasy and French. A little bit of Spanish too. I love my bed, Zumba, mangoes, reading autobiographies, trying different food from different countries. If I could have a second career I would love to be an interior designer.
What brought me to the Women’s Centre …
I grew up surrounded by women: my mother, sister, maternal aunts and cousins. I terribly missed that kind of connection when I moved to Canada. I came to the Women’s Centre with the hope to re-connect with women, and I have in the most wonderful and amazing ways.
A woman whom I admire …
Mother Teresa for the unconditional and tremendous devotion that she had for others.
My favourite book … The Little Prince
My favourite TV show … Grey’s Anatomy
My personal definition of “feminism”:
Being aware and recognizing that girls and women still face barriers and discrimination because of their gender AND doing something about it.
