My name is Kate McBride. I grew up in Manitoba, Canada, which is in my opinion, one of the most overlooked, underestimated, and beautiful places on earth. I live in Winnipeg, MB and completed both a bachelors degree (B.A.) in Psychology and a bachelors degree in Education at the University of Winnipeg. During my time at U. of W, I had always done a great deal of writing and enjoyed it but never did I have a chance to write for myself.
