AnubhaNominee: Anubha Momin

Nominator: Lynn Matte

Riding: Nunavut

Anubha keeps her thumb on the pulse of the community and does an excellent job of engaging Iqalummiut (residents of the city of Iqaluit) and others across Nunavut and beyond through a blog that she co-hosts, with the equally talented and engaged Sara Statham, called Finding True North.

Anubha and Sara have blogged about events in and around the community and are raising community awareness as they go. They’ve covered topics such as the recent dump fire, Iqaluit beer and wine store consultations, and the grass roots recycling program run completely by volunteers. The network these ladies have built means that they regularly feature posts penned by other community-minded individuals.

Rolling up her sleeves and getting involved means that Anubha has done an excellent job of getting to know her community, the people that live in it, and the issues and concerns that catch their attention. She shares what she sees, thinks and hears and provides excellent fodder that engages people and draws them to the conversation.

Anubha was a 2014 EPC adult finalist. Check out the whole adult shortlist here. Submit your own 2015 nomination here.
