My dog, Loki

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt

My name is Brianne Desmarais and I am a second year undergraduate student in the Honours English program at Wilfrid Laurier University. My dog, Loki, is a Siberian Husky, and my best friend. He enjoys long walks, eating my pizza crusts, stealing socks, and taking up the whole bed while he sleeps. I chose the quote from Eleanor Roosevelt because I am a firm believer in the power of self love, confidence, and empowerment. I find that if you believe in yourself, think positively, and try your hardest, then good things will follow. Other people’s negative thoughts and opinions only impact you if you allow them to.

My job as a digital editor is to…

Collaborate, educate, and create. I believe that as digital editors we should be willing to collaborate with other people (just like we are for this group project!), educate others on subjects and tools they may not have had previous access to, and finally to create meaningful, helpful, and informational projects that will improve the quality of research for others.
