The project is part of the Social Planning Council of Sudbury's Closing the Distant initiative.

As a guest at SCDSB's weekly marketing meeting, Alex shared her views and interpretations of a number of media topics which included the Annual Director's Report, radio and television commercials, print ads, and promotional materials for the print media. "It was a genuine pleasure to have Alexandra take part in our marketing meeting," stated Zandra Zubac. "Alex brought keen insight and a new and interesting perspective to many media and promotional issues that are unique to youth and students in our schools."
