Every week we feature a good human from TWIC. This week’s member highlight is Arielle Weinstein … an articulate, creative, grade 11 student who is a newly published author of a children’s book called, “Perfectly Imperfect”. The book features Paula, a beautiful parrot with colourful feathers … the story reveals Paula’s difficult but heartwarming journey of how she lives with Trichotillomania, a body-focused repetitive behaviour that Arielle developed (more commonly known as hair-pulling). Knowing that I would love the title of the book (one of our clothing designs is called Perfectly Imperfect!), and love supporting young people making waves, fellow member, Sharon Neiss Arbess introduced me, and we did this interview. I read a book once that urged us to talk to young people, because they know stuff we don’t … and urged young people to talk to older people, because we know stuff they don’t … so here we are to learn from the inspiring young woman!
