Chelsea is an American but has called Toronto home for the last decade. 28 years young she is an Artist/Athlete that is passionate about art, poetry, feminism, people, food, meaningful exchanges in this life, and Brazilian Jujitsu and experiencing all that those things have to offer. Having spent the majority of her life dancing for fun, in class, in companies, or producing her own works, she can often be found in the studio creating. She took a break from moving and shaking, to obtain a BFA from University of Windsor in Acting, with heavy focus on classical and period theatre. She also currently trains and competes in Brazilian Jujitsu at an international level; she is also known to turn up at any of the many gelato shops in Toronto, and she LOOOOVES gelato. You will literally have to pry the spoon out of her cold dead hands. (Did we mention she's incredibly sarcastic?) It has been said of Chelsea that “... she isn’t happy unless she is barefoot and flying through the air...” And she fully agrees. Writing is a way for Chelsea to keep her creative process, that is this life, rolling forward. She believes writing is powerful, and hopes you are able to­ draw on, learn from, laugh at, cry with, be miffed by, or find joy in­ the things she has learned from her very trial and error method. Chelsea is a supporter of women, and is honoured to be apart of such a rad and vibrant community of women at SGMC. She is humbled by you taking time to read this, and thanks you. She also despises writing in the third person.

Slice of Pie Feminism

We’d been having a blast, and rolling around on the floor for a good 20 minutes, laughing and giggling. Then in the middle, of this awesome, little 5 year old girl, putting her feet on my hips, …
