Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

I am secretly a performer. Everyday is performance. It is part of all aspects of life. In my life I have to perform academically and in my sport. I am competitive swimmer. This requires the art of performing more than you realize. To get up behind the blocks ready to race with your body language radiating confidence and power requires a certain flare for the dramatics. My secret talent serves me well in this way.

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $10,000?

I would like to donate the majority to the Ronald McDonald House charities. My family has benefitted from this charity and I would like to provide support in return, My younger sister had a brain tumour when we were young leaving her with many complications that decreased her quality of life. She even spent her sweet sixteenth birthday in the hospital at Sick Kids in Toronto. During her time in the hospital, my parents and I were able to live at the Ronald McDonald House. This saved our family.
