About meBorn and raised in Toronto, Ontario I am proud to be a Canadian. Holding my degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management, I love travel. Sports and health and wellness play a huge role in my life. I spent my early years playing professional volleyball in the states, which taught me a lot about myself. Currently, I work full time as an Actress and Model. My future goals are to get a bigger role as a TV host for a sports network or even travel company. Along with my humanitarian heart I want to continue giving back to the community through the importance of sport for youth. I am a big believer in doing things that make you happy, and that is how I choose to live my life.

List your top professional or personal accomplishments to date?One of my proudest personal accomplishment would be my final year of University and volleyball at Mount Saint Vincent University. At the end of the year I was awarded ‘Academic all Canadian’, which is an award given to student athletes who are able to maintain honour roll status and within their sport be awarded on the first conference team. As as student athlete this is the biggest honour as I finished at the top of my volleyball career, while maintaining my honour roll status. This is my proudest moment as it was very hard to do, but I truly was honoured to end my university career with this award.
Another accomplishment I am so proud of would being crowned Miss West Indian Canadian and having the opportunity to represent the West Indian community within Canada. Through this opportunity I was able to compete in Miss Canada Universe, which changed my life. Placing top 10 in this competition and being selected as Miss Congeniality truly was something I was very proud of.

What are your hobbies?I am multi-faceted, which has stemmed from my interests and involving myself in different aspects of the community. A few of my main passions are travel, tourism, and volleyball. My future goals are to partner with Tourism Canada to promote and grow the tourism industry. I love to travel and learn about other cultures, animals (especially dogs), dance routines, beauty practices, fashion, and food.
As an athlete I want to continue my efforts as a volleyball mentor and coach to youth, encouraging more young girls to participate in sports within our community. Sports has always been a part of my routine, it gave me the opportunity, confidence, and discipline to become the strong, independent, and hard working woman I am today. I would love to encourage and inspire more youth to seek out other cultures and travel, and speak to them about the passion and discipline that is required in building what it takes to be an athlete.

What is your favorite thing to do?Travel and learning new cultures !!
Where is your favorite place to be?I don't have a favourite place to be, but as long as it is warm and I have my friends and family I am happy!
Do you consider yourself a party person or a home person, why?I am a libra which makes me always wanting balance. So I truly strive for the party person and home person balance. However, I am a very social person, so if I had to choose I would be out and about and surrounded by people :)
Why did you enter the competition?I entered this competition because I love challenging myself and trying new things. I am still young and for me I am wanting to accomplish the most I can in life. I would love to be apart of this competition as it is more than just beauty, it really challenges one on so many more level. The reason I have entered and been apart of pageants and competitions is because I love to have the opportunity to be a voice heard and trying to positively impact all those I can. Also, as I am in the acting and modelling industry I feel I would be a great fit, as I have experience ! And any opportunity to travel and see more of the world and meet new people is always worth it.
Who is your hero and why?The person I would consider my hero is my Granny (Carmen Clarke). She is not my blood relative, but when I was born she raised me as her own granddaughter. She is an incredible woman, who dedicated her life to others as a nurse, with a focus in mental health. As a West Indian woman she fought against the stigma people had about mental health and furthered her studies to be able to help the most she could. Retiring as head of the North York General Hospital Psychiatric Outpatient Unit . She to this day still puts her family first and does whatever she can to help others. She is the strongest person I know, who at the age of 80 honestly looks and lives her life like she is in her 40s. I live my life so grateful that she is apart of it and I strive everyday to be even half the incredible woman she is.
What color relates to your personality and why?I would have to choose two pink and turquoise because they are bright, fun and free colours.
What are you freakishly addicted to?Nutella and banana crepes!!!!!
What is your greatest strength?My greatest strength would be my ability to multi-task and take on various roles and responsibilities.
Most scary animal or insect?I am a little strange and I am actually terrified of birds. I think as a child I was chased by a mother Canadian goose and after that the whole species scares me ;)
