My Miss Universe Canada Journey

I can’t tell you exactly when I decided I was going to pursue the Miss Universe title. It was like I woke up one day with the seed already planted inside of my head. I had not watched competitions since childhood, I didn’t even know who any of the Miss Universe titleholders were.

STOP Comparing Yourself to Others

This is something I consistently try to remind myself – “everyone is different, everyone has their own, unique path in life.” But it’s hard when society influences us to achieve special milestones at certain ages. Get a job, get a car, get a promotion, move out, meet someone, get a dog,

Australia Called; I Answered.

About a year ago, I wrote about being granted a working holiday visa in Australia. In the end, I did decide to take the giant leap of faith forward into the unknown, and the payoff was priceless.

My year in Australia was amazing. For the first time in a while,

Decisions, decisions.

We are all forced to make difficult decisions at some point or another in our lives. Decisions that could drastically change the course of events of our lives. How do we know if we’re making the right choice? What lies in store for me on the path I don’t take?

Quick Thoughts on Connection

“Anybody can look at you. It’s quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.”

The Best Skin Care Routine to Achieve Beautiful, Glowing Skin

For the first time in my life, since literally childhood, I feel confident going out in public with no makeup. For so long, I would feel ashamed of the way that I looked without makeup, and didn’t want people to see me because I feared they would be shocked at the vast difference in my appearance with and without makeup.

Australia is Calling

Today, I received an email from the Australian government letting me know that I’ve been approved for a Working Holiday Visa. I felt . . . happy? sad? I guess I experienced a combination of both, or more like this poignant, nostalgic feeling for a future I envisioned, but never really believed I would experience.

What I’m Listening To

I love this song so much! I can’t believe she’s only 16. It’s weird witnessing up-and-coming artists who are significantly younger than me. Growing up, I remember idolizing my favourite artists because they were older , and were therefore people I wanted to be like when I grew up. You start to experience music in a different way,

I’m Going Vegetarian

Recently, I’ve decided to adopt a Vegetarian diet. No more meat! I always felt uneasy with eating meat, and deep down, experienced guilt, sadness and other negative emotions (sometimes unconscious, lingering ones) as a result of my carnivorous ways. For me, eating meat always carried an emotional price, and I wasn’t willing to pay for it anymore.
