It’s been a pretty good run the last couple of months with numerous accolades and awards stacking up on my office shelf for YOUNG & RECKLESS.
It feels pretty stellar to also be receiving The Encore Vancouver Newcomer Award from the Women in Film & Television Spotlight Awards. Here’s what the award looks like:
