Description

Life doesn't always turn out how we plan. And that's OK, because everything we do is a learning experience. When Christina Hug moved from Toronto to San Francisco to work in the tech and startup field, she hustled to land a 'dream job.' The experience and knowledge she gained from that career opportunity was invaluable; but it was also leading to burnout and a lack of social life.

To counter that feeling, she made a pack with herself to get out once a week and have a 'date night' with herself, forcing her to get in touch with her creative side, which would ultimately bring out her inner maker. She signed up for drawing classes, paint nights and DIY programs that taught her a new skill. The opportunities were endless.

However, upon returning to Toronto, she knew that she wanted to continue with being apart of a maker community; but it wasn't so clear how to do that. So she researched, spoke to local makers to find out their needs and launched Makers Nation - an online platform that designs resources to expose people to cool maker communities around the world, as well as unique events that bring together innovators, thinkers and doers to collaborate and learn together.
