Playing Dolls, Canadian Experience Required

Playing Dolls, Canadian Experience Required by Najat Sinclair-BenrbiaPlaying Dolls, Canadian Experience Required is a real life story that depicts the events of my journey coming to this majestic country, Canada. It is also a story of all the other immigrants who have come searching for new beginnings. Like many before me, I came with hopes and dreams in order to change a corner of my world, but I was faced with discrimination, many hurdles to jump and tough decisions to make in the name of that Canadian Experience. But despite the rigidity and the layering of the bureaucratic chaos in a system that does not seem to work with anything foreign, I came to understand...

In Search of the Blue Lotus: A Feminist Counter-Narrative to the Dominant Hegemonic Discourse

In Search of the Blue Lotus: A Feminist Counter-Narrative to the Dominant Hegemonic Discourse by S. Sandra SukhanMany of us move from childhood to adulthood without much thought of how the events of our childhood impact our lives today. Some memories are happy; others sad or traumatic. Some we remember - childhood play days, the earthy smell of rain after a dry spell, and the feeling a new mother gets when she holds her baby; others we wish to or choose to forget - thick black smoke from riots, feelings of fear because of death threats, and the uncertainty of life in another country. In this very personal diary, Sandra, through a first-person reflexive narrative, shares some of her memories of growing...

Memoir of a Journey with Mental Illness: Treading Water

Memoir of a Journey with Mental Illness: Treading Water by M. S. BurkeM.S. Burke was only nineteen years old when she inexplicably tried to kill herself.

It made no sense: She lived a privileged life of yacht clubs, tennis lessons, private schools, and summers in Canada. If you named it, she had it, including an incredible family-with three sisters she adored and two loving, supportive parents.

Many years later, she still starts each day with the same question: "Will today be the day that I have another breakdown?"

At least she was able to make sense of her feelings after being diagnosed with manic depression, and she shares how she's coped with the condition in...
