Originally from Montreal, Alexa moved to Nova Scotia 6 years ago for her BSc in Marine Biology and Environmental Sustainability and Society (ESS) at Dalhousie University and fell in love with the Maritimes ever since.

Continuing her education at Dalhousie, Alexa just completed her Master of Marine Management, where her research focused on managing abandoned, lost, and discarded lobster fishing gear in the Bay of Fundy.

Her research was inspired by her time working on-board haddock trawlers on George’s Bank in the summer of 2017, where she had first learnt about ghost gear from fishermen.

She also runs a nonprofit she founded called Stop Trashing It, which motivates people to change their single-use waste habits.

On her downtime, you are likely to find her outdoors, probably by the coast doing a shoreline cleanup, or scuba diving, which is her lifelong passion.

As a Sustainable Oceans Alliance Youth Leader, Alexa continues to inspire and motivate others to take action in doing better for our ocean.

Jae Thompson is committed to doing all he can to end the violence in this city of Halifax, especially in Spryfield.

“Just anybody getting shot in front of their family, or shot in front of friends … that’s an awful thing,” he said. “Bullets don’t have no names on it. A stray bullet can hit a child that’s four or five.” That was a quote from Jae after a young man (just 21) Donald Stevenson was shot and killed in front of his family!  

He is using his music to create the change he wants to see and in this episode, we talk about the violence, what he is doing about it, Jae Thompson Music Group, White Boy and his squad More Than Kings.

Listen to his song “Dreams” about violence. I can’t wait to work on the short film “Dreams” with Jae.
