Meet the professional figure skater and future doctor slinging schnitzels in Timmins

For most of the year, 22-year-old Julia Polowy travels the world as a professional figure skater while her twin brother, Victor studies neuroscience and human biology at the University of Toronto, with plans to become a doctor.

But come late spring, they return home to the Timmins community of Porcupine and run a bright blue food truck called Schnitzels and Strudels North.
