UofT TRC Report- Romeo Fournier
WE’RE ALWAYS NERVOUS TO ASK PEOPLE TO GO OUTSIDE IN THE WINTER
Even on a deceptively beautiful and bright day (you know those days that look like spring, when you’re inside, but are actually -10*C, frigid, and dry out) but Romeo was up for it, no problem! It could be because has spent the better part of his life living in Nunavut with his family so this actually was like a spring day to him, or it could be because he’s one of the kindest and most easy going people we’ve photographed, but who knows?
Romeo is an Indigenous academic advisor and career strategist at the University of Toronto, Scarborough campus. He talked to us about all of the new initiatives the campus has been taking- including creating a new Indigenous faculty-, his life in Nunavut- the expensive food and wild amount of sunlight, or sometimes lack thereof- and even his family and how they’re working their way around to all of the tourist attractions in the city.
We could probably ramble on for a bit longer about how great Romeo so we’ll cut ourselves off here. See more photos from this shoot below and see more from the report here:
