ORANGE DAISY PROJECT
Co-Producer, Workbook Co-Author
Not only is Erin Danylchuk a first time associate producer on Orange Daisy Project, she will also be producing and leading the Orange Daisy schools tour on the local, provincial, and national level. Additionally, Erin is co-writing the Orange Daisy Workbook, with Rebecca Gibson. With the mentorship of Valarie Thompson and Rebecca Gibson, Erin is communicating with funders, organizing shoots, and will develop her own documentary projects in the future that touch on themes of social justice.
Erin graduated from St. John's Ravenscourt, then proceeded to Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Erin graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a double major in International Development and Gender and Women’s Studies. She continued her studies at George Brown College in Toronto, where she received a post-graduate certificate in small business entrepreneurship. Her experiences in school helped Erin develop a strong sense of herself. Through her own ups and downs she has learned a great deal that she is grateful to get to share with the girls the Orange Daisy Project will touch – as well as their parents, friends, and the guys in their lives.
Erin plays volleyball, and is involved in YNG: NextGeneration Committee member for YPO/WPO Manitoba Chapter. She has volunteered at Frontier College, Orphanage Outreach in the Dominican Republic, and was a Peer Mentor at Dalhousie University. She is a role model for young women with her sense of self-awareness, her sense of personal responsibility, and her uplifting, frank sense of humour.
Erin has a strong sense of community and passion for giving back and getting involved on many different levels. Orange Daisy is the beginning of what Erin anticipates will be a commitment to social justice combined with the arts.
