In the November issue, we’re getting digi with it! Go behind the scenes of digital movie magic and get the scoop on motion capture.
Two of my favourite things about the November issue are in the Incredible section. The sloth and sloth moth have certainly got my attention. I hope they get yours, too!
We have been receiving some amazing reader artwork so make sure you check it out in The Buzz this month.
In this edition of OWL Voices, Sorcha tells us a little bit about herself.
Hello, my name is Sorcha. I am 12 years old but I will be 13 in couple of weeks. I am an only child and live with my mom and dad. I have a lot of really good friends that I visit a lot. I read loads. My favourite books are the Harry Potter books, and I have to restrain myself from re-reading them all the time! I am also a very big fan girl and watch a lot of TV shows like Doctor Who and Sherlock!
I am very artsy and so I have a lot of artsy hobbies. I like to play the piano, make bracelets, paint, act in plays, edit videos, and draw comics. But the two things I like to do best are writing and drawing. I have so many story ideas running through my head all the time, but I don’t write them down right away. Often before I write I like drawing the characters so I can get a better idea of who they are, what they wear and how they move. The problem is that I get carried away in drawing and don’t always take the time to actually write!
I am also passionate about the environment. All the issues about pollution concern me. I don’t know when, and I don’t know exactly what, but I’m going to try to do something really big that will help our planet.
I have been subscribing to OWL Magazine for nearly four years and I read every issue cover to cover as soon as I get it. It’s been very inspiring to me and I’ve learned a lot of cool things from it. My favourite parts are probably “Alex and Charlie” and “Weird Zone,” although I like a lot of other things too. OWL is amazing!
Thanks, Sorcha! What an amazing write-up.

OWL reader Lola attended We Day Toronto and had a lot to say about her experience! Take it away Lola…
We Day is something I’ve always heard about but have never had the chance to go. What made it even more exciting for me was that I went with my mom and it was her birthday!
It was amazing to see so many people there. Over 26,000 people to be exact! What’s cool about that is they all earned their ticket to be there by doing something helpful to change the world for the better. You can not buy tickets to We Day!
There were performance and speeches by singers, actors, actresses, scientists, inventors, and normal everyday people who have done something great for the world. My favourite person there was Spencer West. Spencer is a person who had a disease that was so bad doctors had to amputate his lower body. I mean his whole lower body! He was my favorite person there because his speech was so amazing but more so because he didn’t complain about what happened to him, instead he used it to help and empower people.
My other favourite moment of the day was seeing the queen of girl power, inventor Natalie Panek. Natalie talked about how women all over need to be treated equally and she said female inventors should be more noticed. She played a game with us to see if we knew some of the most famous female inventors. Sadly, we all knew Kim Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo better than the female inventors that are changing the world today. Natalie also taught me about the power of technology to help people locally and globally, but she also taught me about girl power! Overall, I walked away feeling that with empowerment we can achieve anything in the world, locally and globally.
Thanks for reporting on We Day Toronto, Lola! We’re so glad you enjoyed it and could share your thoughts on it with us.
Did anyone else go to We Day Toronto or are you going to We Day in another city?
