I'm Going to the Olympics!!



I just got offered an incredible job at Vancouver 2010 and the Paralympic Games!
I will be an Educational Coordinator for a web based project. More specifically I will be producing content relating to the "3 pillars" of the Olympics: Culture, Sport & Sustainability.
They are interested in both inspirational stories and stories that trouble the issues - delving into the darker side of the three pillars.
The audience is going to be mainly teachers and their students, particularly targeting students between 12 - 16.
It is such a perfect job for me as it combines my multimedia background with my Women's Studies degree.

I am sooooo excited!

I will finish my semester at the Art Institute of Vancouver but will begin with the Olympics people on a part-time basis the week of Feb 19th. I will go full-time as of March 19th and the compensation is fantastic - great benefits, great vacation and the pay is the best I've had yet.

Yay for me!

ADDITION:
GREG ALSO GOT A FREELANCE GIG OFFER TODAY and... our offices are only 5 min walking distance apart!! Our planets must be aligned ;)
