Smith spoke with 96.9 Radio Humber and said that winning this contest at Humber was really exciting for her.
"I really respect Humber. I really respect the quality of the programme, and I was really excited when I saw the call because I wanted the chance to be apart of hte community."
Smith's story, Sand is about a couple that is making a last ditch effort to repair their relationship while staying at a beach cottage for a month. But for Smith, the story is about more than that.
"For me, its really about that desire that we have to not look at the things that are broken and to try to...remedy the things that are falling apart."
