Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

It has to be a tie between painting and gardening. Both activities are extremely peaceful and life-giving for me. It is extremely freeing to be my natural self and let my creative soul take over, whether it be playing with colours on a canvas, or with flowers and greenery in pots! I love to paint nature-influenced art, and many times I use my garden for inspiration.

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

If I were voted Maxim cover girl, I would use the oh so generous $10,000 for a few things! -a portion to further my education -a portion would go towards creating documentary films, I am currently in the midst of working on a documentary surrounding social media and how it influences my generation, but I also want to create content surrounding climate change and how we should take action -last but not least I would donate a portion to pacific wild, a wildlife charity here in B.C
