#MAKEITAWKWARD PRESENTS SCAACHI KOUL
The Calgary-born, Toronto-based writer will be Thursday night’s keynote speaker
#MakeItAwkward is excited to announce that Scaachi Koul will be the Summit’s Thursday night keynote speaker. Koul is a Culture Writer at BuzzFeed News and the author of the bestselling book One Day We’ll All Be Dead And None Of This Will Matter. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Globe And Mail and The Walrus.
For BuzzFeed, Koul has covered topics such as diversity in Canadian media, the alt-right and cultural appropriation. She has been criticized for directly and unapologetically soliciting non-white, non-male writers for the website. Koul’s book of essays came out in May — a debut collection of
essays about growing up the daughter of Indian immigrants in Wester culture, addressing sexism, stereotypes, and the universal miseries of life.
