Sharna Emrith

What's a 12 letter word for spunk? It's Sharna Emrith! I'm in my third year at Laurier Brantford, I hope to graduate with a bachelor's degree in health administration, post-graduate certificate in human resources and a minor in human rights and diversity. I enjoy being creative in my spare time, from DIY projects to painting—I love it all! Which is why I'm thrilled to be the arts and culture editor for Sputnik. Some say ignorance is bliss, but I think that being well informed about topics relevant to one's community is critical.
