Born and raised in the heart of downtown Toronto, I am a true city gal. I am indulgent of superficial pleasures and is a loyal consumer of all things pretty, fashionable and pop cultured. In truth, I can be deemed as a brand sucker. Knowing this, it only makes sense that I would be the perfect fit for any marketing role as I already like to stay on top of trends and consumer behavior. Currently I am focused in completing my final year in my marketing studies and I cannot wait to hit the floor running.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I love to eat but my most favorite food would probably be rice. I will freak out if I don't eat rice in more than two days, and when I eat it, I can easily have five bowls in one sitting. I will eat it with anything and everything (lasagna, shepherd's pie and bacon are some examples). As long as it's there, I am a happy camper.
