Frank Slim

My project was on Frank Slim: the best river pilot from 1898 till 1956.





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

Frank Slim lived until the year my father was born.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned that you really have to fight for your dreams, and you shouldn't expect to have everything handed to you.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I think that me and Frank are very different; I was raised in the city he was raised in the wilderness.
