The places I go and the people I meet pave my understanding of the world. As I travel, I experience the beauty of interaction and connection with both new and familiar faces. This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to open as Keynote Speaker at the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF). Through climbing, I have defined myself and I have learned life with a passion. I am still growing and learning each day and with each new opportunity I feel blessed for opportunities like this to reflect and to define who I am with a keener aptitude. Developing my ability to convey my ideas and my experiences with new communities of people is something that I am striving towards improving.
Vancouver International Film Festival - Sasha DiGiulian
By illustrating the necessitude of following and committing to passions in life, I hope to transcend my love for climbing to the world. Experiences serve as moments that weave together into stories. I am still writing my story, but I am constantly thankful for the supportive people in my life that help lighten my collection of images and memories.
Needless to say, Vancouver is a spectacular city. I love the fresh air, the mountains, the sea, and the clean landscape. My trip was short, especially short due to the stormy weather on the East Coast. Though, I crammed a good amount of activities into my three-day trip, including my appearance on Rush TV, climbing at The Hive, exploring downtown, the harbor, and most notably, speaking at the Film Festival. I also learned to make soap!!!
After an enriching weekend in Canada’s gem, I am returning to NYC for class!
Coming up on the sched…
February 20 I fly out to Colorado Springs for the Bouldering Championship!
