Sometimes co-op makes dreams come true

Before becoming a New York Times bestselling author, Rupi Kaur was an Honours Arts and Business student determined to ignite a new generation of feminists. She used co-op terms to develop her design skills and to self-publish her first book of poetry, Milk and Honey, as an end-of-term project.

We're assuming you've heard of Rupi – just walk into any Indigo Book Store and her books are hard to miss – but in case you need a better introduction, here's a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon.

If you need more evidence of Rupi's influence on contemporary culture, here's Emma Watson's reaction to meeting our homegrown poetry sensation.
