border crossings 101

Sharing stories allows us to reflect on the consequences and possibilities of our own individual experiences and connects our lives to the lives of others around us. border crossings 101 is a video initiative of the AGM. The objective is to video tape 101 community members to create a catalogue of their border crossing stories and experiences. We are grateful to everyone who has so far shared their personal experiences of crossing the visible and invisible borders in their lives.

Please contact us at agm.connect@mississauga.ca if you would like to participate and be a part of border crossings 101.

Kathy

Could crossing that border into motherhood be a pure act of selflessness? Altruistic as it may sound, as maternal instinct kicked-in, it opened an endless well of selfless love in Anna as she became a person that surprised her own self.
