Vickie Martin- A Guelph “Visionary” Artist

By Mike Baker

“Stunning!” is the word that came to mind the first time I viewed the works of Guelph artist Vickie Martin.

Vickie grew up in Oakville when it was considered a small town and everyone knew each other, not unlike Guelph at the time. That’s one of the reasons Vickie and her husband David decided to settle here.She did her undergraduate degree in computer science and in her 4th year won the Mark A. Levy Award for outstanding excellence in that field. Vickie was encouraged to do her graduate work at the University of Toronto and eventually received her Masters in Computer Science specializing in database design and file structures. She went on to teach computer science at Seneca College, Sheridan College, and York University.

Does Talent Exist? Practice, practice, practice - the 10,000 hour rule

By Samah Qaderi

I think everyone is born with a chance to be great. Talent - the special natural ability or aptitude to be good at something - is not reserved for the few and far between.

To quote former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor, “There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent doesn’t exist, we’re all equal, as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top and that is that. I am not talented, I am obsessed.”
