Not sure how many of you have seen the incredible salsa videos on YouTube of Olesia Kornienko, they’re definitely worth watching! Originally from Poland, she now resides in British Columbia and heads up the Wheelchair Dance Sport Association Canada (WDSACA).

In 2013, Life Locked in a Suitcase was released about the relationship and lives of Olesia and her mother Tatiana. It has since won several film awards.

For those of you in Richmond, British Columbia this weekend, there will be a free screening of the documentary at the Richmond Public Library (Brighouse Branch) on Sunday, April 19 at 2:00 PM. You will get an opportunity to meet the Olesia, Titiana and the director, Evgenia Kolinkovsky.

I am passionate about people and focused on developing meaningful opportunities for people with accessibility needs through social entrepreneurial initiatives in journalism, consulting, and arts. As a TED talks junkie, I would love to hear your story and ideas. Reach out and connect with me!
