Born in the Philippines & raised in Calgary, with nothing more than a passion, a laptop, a DSLR camera & a dream, I am proud to bring you a socially conscious platform that will help you become amazing.
For as long as I can remember, I had always felt that every human being capable of achieving their potential, but was curious as how it would be translated into their future. I wanted to know, what exactly is it that makes people genuinely happy, successful and creatively fulfilled. Why do some people struggle while others find a way to thrive, often despite the most challenging circumstances? It is still something that I find most interesting about us humans.
Growing up, I was also passionate and quite good at a number of seemingly unrelated things; singing, writing, design, sociology, psychology, entrepreneurship, creativity, fitness and philanthropy. My interests and hobbies were vast. I would draw, paint, DIY the sh!t out of my teenage bedroom and took every opportunity to help others in need, volunteering my time and focus to the homeless, orphanages in Mexico and various school and church events. As I grew older, I started to expose myself to the world of food, fashion and public speaking
“I realized that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability.”
Fast forward a few years, 3 kids, a marriage & a shi-tzu terrier later, I decided to let go of my corporate job that I was not passionate about. I was just no longer happy and felt that I could not commit just moving in and out of my life without really feeling. Finally realized that I did not need to choose just one thing to be in life, I realized that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability.
Making that move shook up my life; personally, professionally and emotionally. I gave up the security of the 8-5, began working retail, freelancing in design, banding, cleaning, and a multitude of odd jobs to keep my family fed and clothed while slowly building a coaching/teaching business and sharing my passion of wellness, to the world.
