Friday Video Feature: Erin Scott

"Deep breath in....Deep breath out"

UBCO "Battle on the Hill" runner up Erin Scott smashes the crowd with her slick and clever humor. The crowd hangs on every word as she paints the most hilarious imagery in their minds.
Then it strikes you. Underneath the humor and levity of her words, there is always a deep commentary. A pain or hurt that many feel. A social standard that begs to be re-written.

Our winner that evening was Jada Larkin.
His deep and passionate performance touched the audience profoundly and was evident with tears in peoples eyes and echoing of snaps throughout the crowd. Jada had an ability to take the audience with him on a journey, to feel and experience what it means to be faced with racism and prejudice throughout history and in today's world. His thought provoking performance left the audience speechless. We look forward to seeing Jada up on stage again, he was amazing.
