"A truly engaging and meaningful presentation which captures the essence of what battling an eating disorder is really like.
Niki is a talented singer/performer who is able to weave this story into the words of her songs. Students both understand and empathize with her character and walk away
feeling positive and empowered to face such challenges."
—Julie Ardell, Toronto District School Board, Vice Principal, Secondary Runnymede Collegiate Institute
Dear Principals, Teachers and Councillors,
It’s been an incredible year for my musical, Loving & Leaving ED.™ with the opportunity to perform for audience members throughout the GTA, to outstanding reviews and feedback.
In 2021 I’d like to make this opportunity available to your students.
Did you know that estimates indicate that 1 in every 4 Canadian teenagers has an eating disorder?
Based on my own personal experience, Loving & Leaving ED.™ depicts the lonely struggle of my eating disorder and it’s one that many of your students face today - depression, anxiety, bullying and low self-worth. It offers hope and guidance for a path that moves toward positive self talk, courage, self-respect and community.
The music and dialogue enable an interesting, creative and innovative way to tackle an uncomfortable and painful subject. Approachable, yet highly impactful, it also features valuable and professional resources that students contact post performance.
Book your spot for 2021 and give a student an opportunity to experience an event that could truly change his/her life.
Attached please find more information and I encourage you to reach out to me directly. I hope to hear from you.
