Tell us about your life?
I am at McMaster University studying health and social work. I am currently working towards a double honors Bachelor of Arts degree. I used to be very involved with sports, especially basketball, where I was MVP on both of my high school and travel teams. Working as a professional model, I love to live a healthy lifestyle and spend a lot of my time at the gym promoting and working out. I have a small family and we are all very unique in our own way, but we enjoy many of the same activities. I believe that everything happens for a reason. We are all put on this earth for our own purpose, and mine is to help others. I have a passion for children and people with mental health illnesses, and hope that one day I can make a difference in their lives.
