And to all of the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.
It has taken me a week to finally watch Hillary Clinton’s concession speech. What can I say? I just wasn’t ready. Political views and personal opinions aside, there was something deeply disheartening about watching another woman dare to set her high heel on uncharted territory and fall just short of success.
While this may have been the end of her campaign, I have faith that her courageous dreams to be the first female president of the United States will spark inspiration in the minds of precocious little girls and strong-willed women alike for years to come. I have faith that the future is female…

The debut issue of Sophomore Magazine is out now and I’m happy to have been a part of it. I was flattered when my fellow Ryerson University alumni asked me to take part in the feminist, fashion magazine they were launching by posing for a cover back in February. Since then I’ve watched the publication grow to where it is now in its finished form. It’s so inspiring to watch a group of people set a goal and achieve it. Head over to their website to learn more about the magazine “For twenty-somethings on their way” and see how you can get your hands on a copy.
Earlier in the summer I was interviewed by Golden Boy Press and I love how it turned out so I’d love to share some of my favorite parts here discussing life, my work, social media, feminism, and more.
What’s your life philosophy? How do you try to apply that to your work?
I’m still developing my life philosophy, actually. I suppose one keeps developing a life philosophy until they die, and I still have a lot more living to do. But lately my philosophy has been all about honing and trusting my intuition. Whether it’s about a new job, a person, anything. I’m always striving to follow the navigation of my inner compass. When it comes to my work, I try to do what feels right. It’s usually been the projects where I didn’t speak up when I should have or didn’t do things my way that I end up not liking.
