I am still coming off a high from an incredible evening that took place this past Tuesday night in Toronto. A few months ago, I was given a lovely honor and recognition-I was named a finalist for Digital Personality of the Year, recognizing the best in Canadian digital media. My husband and I left Tuesday morning for Toronto, and he stood by my side at my first-ever Digi Awards in Toronto.
I truly was not expecting to win… and I will start off by saying, I DID NOT. I mean, I was up against THE KENNY from South Park, Kenny Hotz– Kenny vs. Spenny. But it was an honor just to have been named a finalist amongst such brilliant media talent, and I valued it even more because of the fair judging structure. So when Arisa Cox, the host of the Digi Awards (and host of Big Brother) said to the crowd, “All nominees are winners tonight because it’s an honor just to be nominated,” she wasn’t lying
