Favorite quote?

  • Being an individual in a world that is trying to make you like them, is the greatest accomplishment in life.


If you could, what would you do to help make the world better and why?

  • I would adopt a bunch of babies from 3rd world countries! One, because I love kids, and two, because there are so many less fortunate kids who deserve a good home.


What has been your greatest moment in life so far, athletically and non-athletically?

  • Athletically would be winning provincials in my grade 11 year and getting MVP,
  • Non-athletically would be when my first nephew was born!


Who are 5 famous people that you would like to spend a day with, dead or alive?

  • Whitney Houston, Cher Lloyd, Roberto Luongo, Mila Kunis, Shemar Moore


What Bible verse have you been most impacted by and why?

  • Matthew 6:25-34 (Do not worry about what tomorrow will bring, etc…). I was so stressed about what I was going to do after high school but this verse just put things into perspective and I realized that in God’s timing, I’ll figure it out, and that I have no control over my life.


What is your career ambition?

  • I want to go into the field of kinesiology and maybe become a massage therapist or physiotherapist.


Who has been the biggest influence in your life and why?

  • My best friend Jelaine. She has pushed me to be the best person I can be, and has never given up on me even when I’ve been the worst friend and I don’t deserve it. She’s always been there for me and given me advice and let me vent and has always just shone with God’s love.
