over a month ago, i found a conference in canada on human trafficking that i thought looked interesting and i brought it to the attention of my supervisors at my part-time position. she said our organisation would not be represented, but i was free to go on my own accord.
this morning, i got an email from the organiser of the conference saying that i had been recommended by my supervisor to attend the conference as there had been additional funding received from the federal government to have more organisations represented and they could now pay for me to go.
i am excited to go to the conferece, excited to do some more of that networking thing, but not so excited to go to windsor, ontario! i know a lot of people all over the country, but none that i can think of in windsor! i don't even know where the city is or what it has (apart form some ancient auto factories, i would assume), but i feel pretty lucky to be going and see it as another great opportunity.
