Strap in and enjoy the ride! This week we sit down with Joey Desjardins, a Next-Gen Para-cycling athlete looking to make the push towards Tier 1 status. Fresh off a successful turn at the Para-Cycling Road World Cup in The Netherlands, Desjardins talks to us about what goes into his training, the mental benefits of competition, and the importance of both giving and receiving support from those you love.
"It seems weird to me that people will see me as something that I don't see myself." This week, we sit down with Umaia Perlin. She's 16-years old and is our summer intern at The Review. We chat about her love of film and literature, her meeting Margaret Atwood and asking her about feminism, and finally a part of her life she says she may need to think about more as she gets older.
This week, we speak with young artist Natasha Martel, who moved to Vankleek Hill for love and is exhibiting her art at Arbor Gallery (36 Home Avenue in Vankleek Hill) until July 30. Meet her at the gallery on Sunday, June 25, between 2 and 4 p.m.
