CREATE A BRAND OF Y.O.U.R.S

Kasha Slavner-

Kasha Slavner is very much a typical teenager who sometimes needs to be reminded to clean her room and help with the dishes but who also cares a great deal about the planet. She attends a Toronto high school which ‘supports and promotes social justice through five core tenets of education’: Human Rights, International Development, Peace Education, Environmentalism & Multiculturalism.

She is also the recipient of the first Kim Phuc Youth Award for Peace  by The Canadian Voice of Women for Peace.

Her passion to make a difference started at 8 years old when she was inspired at a presentation by Craig Kielburger, founder of Free the Children, who took his place on the world stage at 12 years old as a young activist. Ignited by the proof that children can make a difference, she has been very involved with the organizations’ Me to We Movement for the majority of her school-life, as well as in her community, where she initiated and ran a social justice club to raise awareness & funds for local and global issues. For 4 years she attended their summer Leadership Academy and was invited to participate in 3 of their annual Youth Summits. In March, 2013 at the age of 14, Kasha was selected as youth delegate by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace to attend the United Nations for the 57th annual session on The Commission on the Status of Women.  March 2016 marked her fourth year attending the UN as a Youth Delegate.

Kasha is a passionate photographer, filmmaker, blogger & entrepreneur for social good & has been since a very young age. Impressively she’s acquired quite a few creative & business skills along the way turning her creative interests into viable entrepreneurial enterprises (Sweet Scrub © & Kasha’s Cards of Kindness ©) which provides funds to fuel her love of photography, while simultaneously contributing to causes she cares about.  She continues to do so with the sale of her book and exhibition fundraisers.

She is a contributor to National Geographic Learning, Nelson Publishing, The Huffington Post, Good Magazine, Matador Network, as well as several other publications. She is also a public speaker.

As part of  The Global Sunrise Project,  Kasha is producing a documentary film on global citizenship called The Sunrise Storyteller©,  exhibitions of her photography – Travels into the Heart©, a short book of reflections of her travels abroad – Reflections of the Sunrise Storyteller© . She & her mother became Skype Ambassadors for Social Good and launched the Sunrise Chat for Social Good© series.

She plans to continue to blog on the topic of responsible and sustainable tourism.

Feature film is due for release Spring 2017 – watch for the trailer out December 2017.
