Fashion…Trendy…Style….Appearances!

Hey everyone! I have release an article called ” Ste-Catherine Street Style” that is all about fashion on the famous Ste-Catherine street in Montreal on the streetchic.ca. Being fashionable is everyone’s goal.  Although, there isn’t really just one way to have style and look good because everyone has their own type of look they want to present. Fashion cannot be defined by one sentence because there are so many different kinds of styles out there! Every person is different. We all have our own view of what fashions for us means and every answer is right.

The famous Ste-Catherine Street!

Ste-Catherine Street is definitely one of the most trendiest streets in Montreal. It is about 11.5 km long with many different shops that go from streets brands to top international brands. Any store you want, you’ll definitely find along this street. There are many different people with many more different style’s you will see coming from all over the world walking along this commercial street. I love shopping on Ste-Catherine because it has all my favourite shops and many delicious food chains for a quick snack!

Europe Trip!

Just a few days ago I came back from my trip from France! the trip was planned since March. It is such a beautiful country.  I believe traveling is an important part of growing as a person and learning new things because you expose yourself to so many different cultures, experiences and ways of living that are so different from the ways we live. Travelling opens ones mind to how vast and beautiful our world is! It educates us into learning more about the other people that live on our planet. Our world holds many precious gifts, artifacts, and history that is worth seeing and learning. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see the Eiffel tower in Paris or the Colosseum in Greece? I am grateful for every opportunity that I get to travel wether it be in another town, province, country or continent!

The Alpes

My family and I stayed in a chalet in a place called Meribel, one of the three valleys alongside Courcheval and Val-thoren. It is a very mountainous region with spectacular views. It’s about 2 hours way from Lyon airport. It is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in my life. The most popular activity there is mountain walking/climbing. On my last day in Meribel, I did an 8 hour walk up to a mountain called Gebroula that has large massive glaciers on it.

The Glaciers!

I stayed in the Alpes for 10 days then we drove down to Cannes! The South of France. It’s just like Miami beach, just way hotter! The apartment that we stayed in had a beautiful view of the mediterranean sea. The Cannes film festival is one of the most popular events that occur in this city. People travel all around the world to come to this festival; all the big stars, directors and film producers attend this huge event!

We did some shopping in Cannes and ate amazing seafood since we were located right next to the sea. One day we rented a boat and traveled around the islands. My family and I went swimming in water.  The water in Cote D’Azur was a beautiful dark blue and it felt amazing swimming in it. The weather was sunny during our entire trip! We even went down to Monaco, Monte-Carlo for a day! Monaco is one of the richest places in the world! The city is so beautiful, it is a very mountainous place also located along the sea. There were so many luxurious cars such as Rolls Royce, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini’s and many more.

This was a photo I took! What a view of Monte- Carlo.

Mediterranean Sea! A beautiful blue ocean. Cote D’Azur. A photo by me!

One day we went out to the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc. It is one of the fanciest and most expensive hotels in the world! It had an amazing view of the sea (of course) and was beautiful. All the famous stars stay at this hotel during the Cannes film festival.

At the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc!

Hope you enjoyed reading it! More to come.

Montreal!

I am a staunch Canadian, a proud Quebecer and a passionate Montrealer. I love and cherish the city as I love my own soul. I belong to a community with diversity in race, culture, beliefs and faith, but all are united by love to our city. I feel strongly empowered when I introduce ” my Montreal” to my new friends, as I was given the privilege and opportunity to travel parts of the world, and I am so grateful to have sponsors.

A Little Jump Into Montreal’s Past

When Jacques Cartier and Samuel De Champlain sailed to Montreal in 1535 and 1607 respectively, the land was inhabited by the ” Iroquois” who defended their hunting grounds ferociously and blocked the attempts of the french explorer to establish a fur trading post. It is only in 1642 that a free colonial empire was created by a mission made ” Ville Marie” which became a centre for the fur trade and french expansion into ” New France” until 1760, when it was surrendered to the British Army following the defeat of the ” battle of the plains of Abraham”. Hence the expansion of the British immigration in the city. Montreal became official a city in 1842 and the largest in British North America. It is the undisputed economic and culture centre of Canada. Today, we Montrealer’s are celebrating the 375th birthday of our city.

 

A Top Lifestyle

Mercer, one of the world’s largest consulting firms in HR, released the “best quality of life index” in 450 cities across the world, as regards to the political, social and economic environment, medical and health care considerations, schools and education, theatres, restaurants, consumer goods and availability. Montreal ranked among the best 27 cities competing with Brussels in Belgium, Vienna in Austria, Stockholm in Sweden and Hamburg in Germany. In a spam of a year, Montreal was awarded an international reputation of being the dream city in the world. Its safety, cleanliness, health and green spaces merited many of the city’s efforts in green transportation to reducer carbon emissions.

 

What Can I not Love About this City!

If you’re asking why Montreal is my favourite city, well the last paragraph really explained it! I was born and educated in Montreal, the list of beautiful spots in my city would exhaust more pages than I am allowed. There are two places that I absolutely love. The plateau of Mount Royal is my favourite spot, a cosmopolitan area in a formerly working-class neighbourhood, has been transformed into a trendy cultural place known for its hipsters, cafes, dinners and gaming industries. It has become a must-see for visitors and an important tourist destination. you can come on by foot, bicycles, mopeds and buses. Montreal Mile End is the coolest neighbourhood in the world of 2017, ahead of places like in Berlin, Rio De Janeiro, Hong Kong and London.

Another beautiful place is ” Old Montreal”, located along the river with an amazing waterfront. It has a European taste to it with its cobblestone road, narrow streets and horse carriages. After a long day of strolling in these medieval roads, you may be craving for a steak at the Keg or Gibby’s at a short walking distance from main street ” Saint Paul”. If you feel for a mouth- watering culinary seafood specialities, ” La Maree” is right on “Place Cartier”. ” Marche Bonsecours” is a complement to your shopping spree. The festivals succeeding each other starting in June with the Formula 1, The Jazz festival, the Cartifest, the Just for Laugh, the E car race etc. have made Montreal the city of fantastic fiestas. I am so passionately in love with “my Montreal” that I want the whole world to share such moments with me.

The pageant is just moments away and I am so very excited for it! I cannot wait to begin the one week journey in Toronto while competing in the Miss Teenage Canada pageant!

 

Love,

Pageant Preparations!

The past two weeks have been crazy! I volunteered at the WICAC event last week and guess who I bumped into? Miss Mexico! I got to meet Miss Mexico since she was part of the West Island Crusade Against Cancer event as well. I wish her the best of luck while competing at worlds.

.

I also did some volunteer work at two different retirement homes! I was glad to be able to help out the seniors and put a smile on their faces while I was helping around. On a more recent note, I have raised  $2145 for the WE foundation. This money will be sent to help empower and enhance the education in Nicaragua for those whom most need it. I would also like to give a huge shoutout to Hubert Zakrzewski-Jakubiak, the owner of two pharmacies, for being one of my sponsors for the Miss Teenage Canada pageant! I cannot thank him enough.

Pageant Ready

I would also like to thank J.S International for sponsoring me a dress for the Pageant! They are very kind for giving me a beautiful dress. Lady Gaga wore one of their dresses. They design their dresses in New York!

 

Newspaper!

A big thank you to Justine Gravel for writing a newspaper article on me! We met at a little cafe at the Atwater market for an interview. She was very kind and I greatly appreciate her effort into putting the time to write an article about me. Take the the to read it!

Click here to check out what they wrote in the newspaper about me!

 

The sports side!

I play with Lakeshore FC U17. My team is currently ranked first place in the league! I have 14 goals in 13 games. We are doing really well in our soccer season and we are hopefully looking at keeping our first place rank so that we can compete in the national championships that will take place in New-Brunswick in October of this year. In 2016, we came in 1st place in the national championships, and we are looking to do so again this year.

Action photo!

Hi everyone! So here’s a little update of whats going on with me!

Just two weeks ago I graduated from my high school finishing with a 90 overall average of the school year. Last Friday was my prom! It was an emotional night since it will be the last time my classmates will be together before we all part our ways. It is sad to end high school , although I cannot wait to see what the future holds.

Prom Ready!

In the last month, I have been raising funds to support the Free the Children foundation. My goal is to raise 4500$ for the WE foundation. So far,  I have raised 1695$ thanks to all friends, family and supporters of my journey to the national pageant.  The following is the link to donate to my fundraiser! Any kind of support helps!

Click here to help support the WE foundation by donating!

 

What has been my volunteer work?

This morning, I was volunteering at Dr. Chadiacs office. He is a pediatrician who was voted the #1 pediatrician in Montreal. It was amazing to help him with his work throughout the day.

Dr. Chidiac and I!

 

In the following week, I will be volunteering at a residence home helping the elderly by preparing their food and doing some house work. I will also be volunteering at the West Island Crusade Against Cancer event! Finally, I will be meeting with one of the coordinators at Free the Children to speak about my mission into spreading awareness of their foundation and to give children in need the support and opportunity to an education.

Who am I?

I am half- Greek and half Guyanese. I have lived in Montreal my entire life. I have been playing  soccer since I was four years old. I continue to play competitive soccer with my club team Lakeshore Fc. I am also on the provincial team for Quebec, therefore being crowned would not be the first time I’ve been given the opportunity to represent my province. For the last three years, I’ve been training at CNHP ( National centre for Elite Performance). I have been playing competitive soccer my entire life.

 

All Smiles

My Profile

Wanna know what’s my goal?

My goal is to help fundraise money to support ” Free the children”. I want to empower the youth and give them the resources needed so I can help change their lives for the better.  I would like to help provide them with an education and give them an opportunity to explore life and be able to do and become anything they want! I strongly believe that any child, no matter where they were born or what circumstances they live in, deserve an education so that they can one day prosper and grow.

Here are the videos that took place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto for the Miss Teenage Canada Pageant. Although I didn’t win the competition, I gained a significant amount of confidence and an unforgettable experience that I will cherish forever.

A huge thank-you to my sponsors Peter Schlotthauber Excavation, Raymond Mallette, my dentist and orthodontist Dr. Laurent Oiknine at Centre Dentaire Place des Promenades and most of all my family!

About My Platform and What I Did:

I would like to promote good morals to young individuals and for them to enjoy their dreams and empower others to live theirs. I want to create a new generation of young girls and be a leader.

I was volunteering at various events throughout the summer from being an ambassador to a route marshal. I also have three younger sisters which were able to help to me and look up to me for what all the good things I have done.

On my way to the airport there was a little girl that thought I was a princess and I put my crown on her. Her mother took a picture of her and I. It was such an amazing experience to make a little girl’s day.

Why Did I Choose This Platform?

I chose this platform because being the oldest of 3 sisters I want to be the greatest role model I can be. If I made mistakes they can learn from it and I can be more stronger person as well.

I want young girls to be free of alcohol and drugs because you will become more successful in life and be more advanced without all that junk in your face. By doing extra activities such as fundraisers and charities it will reduce of using.

I want all you of you to have fun but to be safe. To know all about the dangers things can lead to.

What Does My Platform Mean to Me?

It means a whole lot that I can be a model to young girls. I can become a leader to youth and they can not make the same mistakes many do. This will prevent youth violence in the community.

What would I do with my platform as Miss Teenage Canada?

I would love to travel the world promoting my platform as being a good role model to youth. Develop fun and original ways for youth to become very interested in camp to have activities that will enjoy. In the end, I want everyone to know to focus on yourself and to what makes you feel good.
