Okay, that get the elephant out of the room, I have communication disorders. What is a communication disorder? A communication disorder is a vague wording for someone who has trouble communicating and has a difference in the communication portion of the brain. For me, I have Childhood Apraxia of speech (verbal Disapraia) as well as some others, which I don’t […]
2018 was a year filled with ups, downs, struggles, encouragement and more. I learned that sometimes the popular choice isn’t always the best, I learned who the real friends and supports are and who was the fake ones. I had to make hard divisions and change my route several times. But I don’t regret a thing this year, every […]

I had been given an amazing opportunity. As all of my followers know I have suffered from speech impediments and intense bullying in my lifetime. And this is why I compete in pageantry, to create awareness for such issues. So I had an amazing opportunity presented to me in September, to be a worldwide title holder with Live Out Loud […]

This year HockeyVille came to the Okanagan, and because Canada is famous for Hockey, Hockeyville is a BIG deal in here. One community across the country is chosen as HockeyVille Canada for the entire year. This year the Village of Lumby (which is just a few minutes from Vernon) was in the top 2. Over the past 10 years HockeVille […]
On March 28th I attended the Okanagan’s famous Loco Landing Easter Egg Hunt. I was honored to be on the special guest list next to the one and only Easter Bunny. I mean who can really say they have had their name next to the Easter Bunny!! This Easter egg hunt is more than just an egg hunt it has everything from crafts to surfing practice to full on relays. One of my highlights from this year’s event would be the egg hunt in the SS Sicamous, which is a vintage boat that once sailed the Okanagan waters; this boat is also rumored to be haunted. Though this boat is no longer on the water it was still very cool to walk around on. I was able to see the sleeping quarters, the mess hall, and even the captain’s wheel. I loved watching the children run from room to room searching for their Easter eggs. The loco landing Easter egg hunt is definitely an Okanagan favorite for sure.
