My name is emily Bartosiewicz  ☻ 

(If you can pronounce that, let's be friends!)

Currently, I'm studying Creative Industries in Toronto at Ryerson University. I'm going into my second career, following my retirement as a professional ballet dancer. I spent three years living in Copenhagen, Denmark for my first career - a blissful time in which I'd get everywhere by bike, dance in one of the world's oldest amusement parks, and jump into the canal between performances. 

As a lost and confused twenty-something year old, derailed by the force of transition, I'm now trying to get my feet back on the ground. Apart from my very obvious interest in dance, I'm passionate about travelling and exploring, writing and reading, art and good design, architecture and urban planning, and meeting new people. I pursue a variety of creative projects, through school or independently. 

This blog began as an alternative creative outlet to have while I was dancing - a time where I was very isolated in the world of ballet. Fijord reflects myself and my findings, but is also a compilation of the people, places, things, and events that have inspired me and have had a hand in sculpting my life to this point.

But now, I would love to hear a bit about you! I'm always energized by meeting new people, be it in Canada, Denmark, or anywhere in the world. So, shoot me an email or contact me via Instagram!
