- WHAT WOULD YOU BRING
As the new MuchMusic VJ, what would you bring to much?My crazy, outgoing, quirky, personality! I have always been charismatic, adventurous, and never shy away from new, exciting opportunities. When I want something, I always work extremely hard and stop at nothing until I get it. When it comes to something I am passionate about, you could not find someone more dedicated to achieving success. I have a passion and knowledge for all genres of music, ranging from mainstream pop, underground indie to hard rock. My experience and skills concerning digital media, and TV/ studio production would also come in handy as THE NEXT MUCH VJ!
- DESCRIBE YOU
How would your friends describe you?My friends would describe me as a bubbly ball of energy! They would say I am always on the go, running from one commitment to the next always doing something exciting and interesting. When it comes to multi-tasking - I am the queen. (Except for texting and holding a conversation… that needs improvement)
- IF YOU COULD INTERVIEW ANYONE
If you could interview anyone, who would it be and what would you ask them?Wow there are so many people I would love to interview it is hard to pick just one…. But if I had to choose Dallas Green would probably be it. I would love to talk to him about how different it is to work in the music industry in two very different genres. He is so talented in both Alexisonfire and City and Colour, and definitely is one of my all-time favorite artists!
- CHANGED YOUR LIFE
Tell us about a song, artist or album that changed your life.Back in 2002 (I was only in Grade 2 then), Avril Lavigne changed my life with her album 'Let Go'. I remember watching the 'Sk8er Boy' music video on Much, and thinking to my self “WOW a Canadian teenager who is so confident, cool, and unique.” Not only did I want to be like her, I loved how her songs told stories, and I would dance in front of my mirror to them for HOURS. My love for her started my obsession with music, and from that point on it has always played a huge role in my life and has shaped who I am today.
What are some big trends or issues affecting youth in Canada.Mental illness is a huge issue affecting youth in Canada. So many people are affected by it, yet there still is a negative stigma attached to it. It’s so important that people remember an invisible problem, can be just as painful and hard to go through as a physical one. Youth need to know that there is always a way to get help.
- MUSIC EXPERIENCE STORY
What is your best music experience story?I have so many amazing music experiences, but one that will always stand out is seeing the Spice Girls during their reunion tour. Growing up, I watched Spice World almost every weekend and pretended to be Baby Spice too many times to count. Seeing them together again, performing an incredible show, reminded me how their music was such a significant aspect of my childhood.
