- WHAT WOULD YOU BRING
As the new MuchMusic VJ, what would you bring to much?Being the next Muchmusic VJ I would be able to bring a different energy, taste, and view that hasn't yet been displayed. I am a very open minded person in my opinions, music, and even fashion. Not only that, but I would love to bring more interaction with viewers and fans of the channel because that is Muchmusic, the music and the fans. Oh ya, and I'll bring my cat Blondie, because she is fricken adorable and my personal mascot! Who doesn't love cats?!

- IF YOU COULD INTERVIEW ANYONE
If you could interview anyone, who would it be and what would you ask them?I am a massive rock music fan, and some of my favorite musicians are Canadians. Bif Naked has to one of my all time role models and favorite musicians. I would love to sit down and talk with her about her whole career from performing on Jay Leno, being on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS), and her battle with cancer. My top 3 questions I would also want to ask would be:
1. Who is your dream collaboration?
2. If you could have dinner with 3 other people dead or alive, who and why?
3. Which current artist are you a fan of?
I am always curious about musicians that I listen to and what they also have on there ipod!
- CHANGED YOUR LIFE
Tell us about a song, artist or album that changed your life.I am a huge music addict. My itunes is always growing and evolving with different genres, artists, and songs that mean so much to me but in different ways. One album that has always been on constant repeat for me since I could remember is Our Lady Peace, Clumsy. The title track was one of the first songs my oldest brother had played for me and even at a young age I could relate with the song as much as I can as an adult. It's song writing at its best and when I need a good cry or pick me up, it's the first song on my playlist, and its nice that it has a sentimental value.
What are some big trends or issues affecting youth in Canada.Bullying has always been a big issue that not only affects me to this day, but it's a huge issue that leads to so many others. Bullying is often tied with mental illness issue like eating disorders, depression, and unfortunately suicide, and from personal experience, I loved having a place to escape to like Muchmusic when times were rough, and would love to carry that onto the next generation of teens and youth, informing and comforting them that it gets better!
- MUSIC EXPERIENCE STORY
What is your best music experience story?My best music experience would have been seeing No Doubt on their reunion tour. One of the first albums I received growing up was Tragic Kingdom, and having the chance to see a group that I grew up on perform live was an amazing experience. Also, Paramore had opened which was a newer band I became a fan of so it was a cool blend of favorites, and I felt like a kid again rocking out and being jealous of Gwen's abs.
