What was the most memorable experience of The Amazing Race Canada for you?
The most memorable experience of The Amazing Race Canada would be when we won the first leg of the race. We knew people would target us as a weak team and we played that up as best we could so they would think we weren’t going to be tough competition. We were never focused on winning every single leg but once that victory happened, we knew we had to keep pushing hard because a target was on us now. It lit a fire in us and reminded us why we were here, for the kids! We had planned on donating a portion of the money, had we won, back to the Huddle Up program so it could reach more schools and help more students.
Do you feel like you got to see a new perspective of Canada after being on the show?
Canada is so beautiful! No matter where we went I reminded myself to stop for a second and take it all in. The cities and towns we were able to visit had so much character and were filled me the most helpful and kind people. It made my love for Canada grow that much more.
What's the biggest thing you learned well being on the show?
I learned to trust my instinct and listen to my mind & body. We were eliminated due to a penalty we took for a challenge that caused an anxiety attack. I remember telling myself you have to try again. But in my gut I knew I had to do what was best for my health long term and just take a knee. The anxiety I would’ve felt for days, maybe weeks after was just not worth it for me and for once I truly listened and it was the best thing I ever did.
What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
I listen to just about everything. My music taste depends on my mood but I’d say 99% of the time you’ll catch me listening to something I can sing along to (not that you would ever want to hear it). It’s mainly a mix of Hip Hop & Pop I would say.
What would you classify your personal fashion style as?
My personal fashion style is for sure mood based as well. I would say most of the time I go for comfort but still fashionable. You will catch me dressed up from time to time but these days I mostly keep it casual. Jeans, sneakers and a simple T is my go to.
Any favourite fashion designers that I might catch you wearing?
House of Hayla heels and sneakers are my go to for footwear for sure. As for clothing Levis is my denim choice right now and obviously some comfortable Peace Collective gear, the crew neck sweaters are a staple in my closet.
What's one thing you would really like to do this year?
Travel as much as possible is on my to-do list this year for sure. I caught the travel bug after the show and have the urge to see some new places within Canada and also abroad. I barely scratched the surface while on the show so I may have to leave Toronto for a bit to see what else is out there but I know I can always come home.
