  1. Hi Annette,

    My name is Juanita and I recently relocated from Toronto to Ottawa for a new exciting job in broadcasting. I’m looking to make new friends and get to know young black female journalists in Ottawa. I came across your website on the Black Ottawa Scene website, and thought, why not interduce myself via email! 🙂

    I hope you don’t mind me emailing you but I’d love to grab a coffee with you sometime. If you know of any events worth attending this month were I could network and get to know more people of colour in Ottawa as well that would be awesome !

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    1. Hello Juanita, so sorry for my late response. I have a bad habit of posting pieces and then diving into my office to write more. Would you mind commenting your email and I’ll message you? 🙂
