why hello there fellow tea drinker...
Keltea you may ask? Well good stranger, let me explain it to you. When I was little my dad told me all about the sweet magical nectar of the gods that is tea. In my mind, it was only something grown ups could drink and that’s what made them all grown up and cool. (I was stuck drinking gross 2% milk, cause you know, I was a growing girl and all.) I begged and pleaded with my dad to teach me the sacred art of tea making, but he refused. One day, he finally had enough of my nonsense, and brought me over to our electric kettle. "Watch," he said. And boy did I.
Mug. Tea bag. Sugar. Hot water. Wait. Stir. Milk. Stir.
It was like witnessing the second coming of Christ. I was so ecstatic. As ecstatic as any child could be. I, Kelly-Ann Desouza, was going to be a tea drinker. Little did my poor heart know that my sly, conniving, trickster of a father was to soon take advantage of my newfound knowledge. Everyday forth, my dad would yell from some unknown part of our house, "Kelly! Make me a cup of tea!" Time soon passed, and the command shorted to, "Kelly! Tea!" Until eventually, "KEL, TEA!" And there you have it folks. The tragic story of one young innocent child, turned tea slave in a matter of 7 minutes. Do I still drink tea to this day you might ask? Well old friend, yes. Yes I do. Do I still make my dad tea? Yes. Yes I do. Was there really any point to this story? No. No there was not.
Besides drinking tea, I am a recent grad from Capilano University with a love for all things cozy and warm. I studied in the 2D animation and visual development program where I made a lot of friends, learned to function on 4 hours of sleep and developed chronic back pain. That being said, it was the best two years and I can’t wait to get started in the animation industry. I quite like drawing, and making some of those drawings move is pretty rad.
I also studied Media Arts at the Alberta College of Art + Design where I met a lot of pretty cool people and created a company with two close friends! It’s a work in progress but I can’t wait to see where that adventure leads! Check us out at www.emcamp.com :)
