Thank you so much for joining me and taking the time to browse my website!
As a means of communication and connecting with my audience, I wanted to ensure that my website includes a blog in which I post updates about my interests such as fashion, food, health and creativity as well as recent accomplishments and such. If you find this blog useful to you please reach out to me on my contact page and let me know! I'm more than happy to answer any questions or comments.
Let me tell you a bit about myself, that you may or may not already know from browsing through my website. I am currently 22 years old, living in downtown Toronto, Canada and I am just finishing up my final year at Ryerson University in the Fashion Communications program. Over the last 3.5 years, I have made huge self-discoveries and met so many incredible people who have motivated me and contributed to my love of the fashion industry in this city.
As a creative junkie, I was always crafting or painting from a very young age and whatever came to mind, I somehow knew how to make it come to life. Creativity has always been and always will be my strong suit wherever this life takes me.
I was fortunate enough to somehow fall into the Fashion Communications program at Ryerson, not really knowing what I was getting myself into, I jumped in head-first and fell in love with the concept of fashion more and more as I realized how much it allowed me to pursue my creativity. 3.5 years later, I have nearly mastered the art of fashion illustration and have been so incredibly lucky to work with clients such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Toronto Men's Fashion Week and Fashion Group International. I have been completely overwhelmed with support from mentors and experienced individuals in the fashion industry of this city, and I am ever so grateful to have met the wonderful people who have come into my life.
In the next three months or so, I will be taking on a full-time position after graduation. I haven't exactly determined what this position will be yet, but I know in good faith that the right opportunity will come along. I will also be developing and marketing my brand as a fashion illustrator over the next year as I create collections to share with all of you, so stay tuned!
Though I have been incredibly lucky to meet the people I have, I've also worked very hard to break out of my shy shell and made sure to connect with these people that I admire so much on a personal level and develop friendships. I have done so much searching within myself and pushed my boundaries beyond what I thought I could do and the result has been absolutely incredible.
I am a true believer in creating your own success and I believe that all aspects of our lives affect one another. Health has always been a top priority in my daily routines and I always make sure to eat very healthy foods and stay active through running and yoga as well as the regular gym workouts. In the summer I adore running along the harbour front in Toronto and in the winter I enjoy going to yoga classes and working on my flexibility.
In the last year or so, I have adopted a mostly vegan diet which consists of a ton of vegetables and fruits, especially bananas, as well as grains and even starches! I conducted a ton of research on vegan diets and benefits to our overall health and I have never felt better in my body! Gone are the days of poor digestion and fatigue, instead I wake up feeling energized and enjoy eating large amounts of food without harming my body in the process. Though I do enjoy the occasional dessert.. guilty!
