An Extended Write up about Honourable Kaycee Madu, KC, ECA

On his re-election bid in Edmonton-Southwest, Honourable Madu has faith that South-west constituents will vote him back into office. He has been a competent representative and an effective, committed cabinet minister on their behalf.  First, schools have been and are being built where there is need and secondly, infrastructure such as roads are being addressed. The widening of Anthony Henday and the $120 million dollars in provincial capital funding for the widening of Terwillegar Drive all the way to Windermere Boulevard are going on as we speak.

Jacqueline Alethea is of a mixed-race background. Her mom was born in Cuba and raised in Jamaica. Her dad was born in Ontario, with ancestral roots to M’Chigeeng First Nation. Alethea, the middle name of three generations, means ‘truth’. Jacqueline tries to embrace her cultural alignment through food and music but has yet to travel to as many ancestral locations as she would like. One of Jacqueline’s proudest stories is about the birth of her daughter, who was born with a Mongolian spot. This congenital birthmark is seen most commonly over the lumbosacral area and most commonly in individuals of African ethnic background.

Black History Month | The Skin We’re In | Jacqueline Biollo, MBA, ICD.D

Some students spoke of the Black Lives Matter movement, while others tried to expand on their
understanding of the word systemic racism, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Some offered comparisons
to the importance of education, news media exposure, and the availability of support systems necessary
to build a society that is more just and equal.

The overarching sentiment was that many did not realize that racism was a big thing in Canada. They felt
this was much more of something Black’s experience in other parts of the world, especially the United
States of America. Still, it brought cause and importance to exposing the struggles of minorities so that
others understand the need for change. Students suggested we need more empathy and respect in a
world where many still do not feel equal and safe, and some feel subjugated, vanquished, and

Overcoming Challenges with Eleanore King

Overcoming Challenges with Eleanore King

One of my challenges right now is to lose weight and get to a certain weight. Sometimes I feel like giving up but I’m not going to give up. I know why I want to lose weight and so I am going to stick to it. So far, I have lost one stone 3 lb which is about 8 kg. I want to lose another 3 kg. I even got a fashion designer to sew dresses for me last year with the lower target weight. Obviously I couldn’t fit into those dresses when I received them. Finally, I was able to put them on at home a few weeks ago but they are still a bit tight. Those dresses are a reminder to me that I must get to my target weight so I can fit into them.

A Chance for a Fresh Start | Jacqueline Biollo, MBA, ICD.D

Having (self) doubt helps you because it allows you to find your inner strength, re-evaluate or re-align your goals and aspirations, and eliminate the negative self-talk that lingers in your head with positive affirmations. Consider adding a mantra to your self-talk. One that reminds you that you have been dealt a good hand and can and will succeed at anything you put your mind to. Failure, adversity, disappointment, and even heartache know no boundaries. The challenge is to find a target-rich environment wherein you can thrive.

Be ready to begin a new chapter, a fresh start, or give in to a chance. Write the textbook of your life and defend the success of your future with your mind, body, and soul. Expand your network of opportunity, both personally and professionally, and gain access to your untapped resources.
