Breakfast of Champions

The YWCA of Hamilton, together with their Young Women’s Advisory Council, held their annual Totally Awesome Young Women’s Breakfast event at LIUNA Station Friday morning. The largest to date, it brought over 500 young girls from city schools representing both boards for breakfast and a chance to learn, empower and connect. The highlight was a performance from d’bi.young anitafrika, a Toronto based dubpoet and playwright-performer who captured the girls’ attention with a performance that made them laugh, and listen, and think. Here’s a look. – Barry Gray
