Time for this week's edition of#LocalLegendsStories! The New HOT 105.5 'sLaura Woodworth shares her journey to PEI, and it could easily be a Tourism PEI advertisement - Thanks Laura!"I'm originally from Newfoundland, and I first came to PEI back in 2010 to study nutrition at UPEI.

Another story - this one if from a dear friend, Jill. Thank you for sharing with us!"I visited PEI with my grandparents every summer growing up.
