Just completed an undergrad in Environmental Science and Philosophy. Also, do some modeling work on the side, and spend time with my cat.

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

My secret talent is my perseverance and determination. No matter what I decide to pursue in my life, I always set goals and do my best to achieve them. That means not getting beat down if ever the “set” plan slightly deviates off course. On a more practical note, I was an avid practitioner of Wing Chun Kung Fu for three years. This particular type was invented by a woman, thus it satisfied both the feminist and the fighting side of me .

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

Being voted cover girl would be amazing! I would be able to pursue my studies and get more specialized in my field. On top of that, it would help me gain some recognition as a model. Even though my primary interests lie in what I worked on during my undergraduate at McGill, I am super grateful to have had the opportunity to model. In any case , just thinking of potentially being on the cover of Maxim is in itself a pretty cool fantasy.
