What are your favourite things to do in Vancouver?
My favourite things to do is soaking up the sun with a beach walk, eat delicious vegan treats in a picnic spot, and exploring all the local stores on Main St. Vancouver is known for its coffee culture, and I love discovering new coffee shops throughout the city, I’m amazed at how many coffee shops we have here! When the weather's warm, you'll find me at the farmers market or Granville Island with the family, enjoying the fresh produce, pastries and live music.
We also have an abundance of lakes, forest parks and beaches so in summer I love spending time in bodies of water.
Which piece in your jewellery collection is most special to you?
My most special piece of jewellery is this beautiful set of gold earrings, necklace and bracelet that belonged to my grandmother, it has roman numbers on them (they were trendy back in the day). It’s a family tradition that the jewellery gets passed from woman to woman, generation to generation. My mom carries jewellery from my grandma, my great-grandma and great grandma.
Every time I wear my grandma's gold set I feel like she’s with me, guiding me through my day. I usually wear it when I have a big photoshoot that I’m nervous about or when I feel like I need guidance in my life.
