To exlore, the world and the mind
If you were to ask anyone that was close to me they would probably have to say that i am a traveller. From a very young age i was constantly on the move, an army brat without the army. The people i call friends, i have known for many years. Some of these people i recall back to my very first memories. I have a big heart and am a healer. I listen, i communicate. People have always interested me. I take in and give back.
I moved all up and down the coast with my mother. Later in my teenage years i worked and created a stable home for myself. After a few events occured i decided a change of scenery would be good for me and packed up for Alberta. Once i released myself from the 'home' syndrome, i was constantly on the move.
I have always had a thirst for culture and experience. Seeing and being a part of other parts of the world has always been a desire. I have travelled to eight other countries to date (2013) but do not want to stop there.
I am a new mother to an amazing little girl. She is a blessing i never thought would come to my life. Raising her as a single parent has been quite the accomplishement. Her positive and happy personality is a treat i wake to every morning. I want to share the love of the world i have with her.
Music, Movies, and Books
I listen to everything. Except Punk Rock. I like to hear the music i am listening to =)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was in a car accident two weeks shy of my seventeeth birthday. I died and was brought back by emergency CPR. I was in accoma for four days, two naturally the other two were drug induced because of the severity of my injuries. I awoke with many setbacks that i would eventually over come and conquer.
Traveling to many of the places i have gone to, that were struck by tragedy, showed me of all the humility this world still possesses. (Phucket-Thailand, Pearl Harbor-Hawaii, Kuta-Bali,New York-USA) By seeing and being a part of each of these places it showed me that many go through their own losses, yet they too have found a way to continue to grow, and not forget.
Taking the steps before me i continued on, taking it what lay before me. Step after step i continued towards a journey i had not yet recognized, yet i continually tried to understand and retain the beauty that reached my eye and heart.
2009 i was asked to be a delegate in the Miss Universe Canada Pageant. After much thought and consideration i did turn down the offer. I felt at that time that i still had much to do and learn before i could devote myself to such a position.
Over the next two years i would gain much internal growth within the family. I nearly lost both of my parents to their own battles with illness and cancer. I lay at my mothers side after she had a hysterectomy and talked of what she wanted to happen, if she did not make it. All we have is now, and we must appreciate it. We must take it what we have around us with gratitude and sincerity, we truly do not know when we will no longer the ability to say thank you.
2011 i made the decision to commit, and i became a delegate for the position of Miss Canada. I did not 'win' the position, but i won the crown inside of my heart. I was able to for the first time in my life have both of my parents, sit side by side, cheering me on. They seperated when i was only 3 years old. A lot of events had to occur to make this happen, but it was this that made my smile shine with glory. I have been blessed to live and love the life i have.
Becoming a mother is by far the most amazing and special event of my second chance.
