Ok, on Sunday we had a couple presentations from some really strong women. We took a bunch of notes so here is my revisory of what they were saying.
Nadia Chong started as a model with Ford when she was 17. She was a huge athlete in school as well as a tom boy. She never really believed in modelling before her dad took her to a modelling cast. She got in and went to work with Sutherland modelling. She soon became the face of Mac Cosmetics then became a stylist later on. She started Soi Boutique which encorporates health, beauty and style into their products as well as being all natural. A bit of advice she gave us was make sure to tell and develop your story as that is your life. Always keep growing and maturing as well as maintaining your passion, despite if it changes.
Alexandra loved to write different things such as poetry and songs. She competed in gymnastics and went on to become an Olympian. She struggled with many insecurities and learned that nobody is perfect. It was a really hard road to the olympics with a complicated behind the scenes.Make sure to acknowledge everyone behind and ahead of you and don’t get cocky like she did at one point. She lost once and became very secluded and mentally lost. She finally realized it wasn’t about winning later on and that all experiences make you who you are and that you need to do what you feel is right. Any put downs placed on you just make you stronger, take huge risks and don’t be scared of failing. In 2008, she qualified for the Olympics and won many medals.
Natalie is a dentist. She loves the mission statement of MTC-W. She says to always keep your opportunities open and that despite how much will be taken away, they can never take away your education so schooling is very important. Make sure to do everything, despite your opinion on said task. Pick a strategic location for your ventures or ideas, this will increase good possibilities and chances. Keep your ideas strong, prepare for tough choices and make sure to do advanced planning. Women need to take more financial and social risks, despite the tough decisions that pop up. Women nowadays are the main money earners in households, they set the limits and keep relationships strong. Things can get overwhelming easily so take time for yourself. Pick a good partner to help you out, have children early in life, join everything you want and follow your moral compass always.
Katrina is a health and fitness based woman. Since she was tall, she got called a lot of names in school though she never let it get her down. She tried out for the basketball team but she blew her chances with the WNBA since she blew out her knee. She created a new dream and didn’t give up. She said no to modelling as she was about a size 12 or 14 at the time. She tried to lose weight, gained and eating disorder before surrounding herself with nutritional people. She became a health trainer to help people feel good physically and mentally. She later on moved from Ottowa to Toronto and helped change Ben Berry to accept new sizes, shape and race.
Ok, so here is my TV show idea. With my sponsors help, I would make a TV show called Charity and Travel. This show would consist of either a singular person or couple who spin a wheel with the names of many charities on it. Once one has been chosen, they will move on to the next area where they will choose how much they must make for this charity by randomly choosing a box or case. The next area is where they will pick another random box or case. In each case there will either be a 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or vacation symbol. For each symbol, they will either get 2/3/4/5 times the amount of money they make for the charity, so long as they meet their goal, or a week long vacation to a randomly selected destination. They will then go off and take a week to try and make their goal or as much as they can for the charity and once it is done, the money will be totaled and prizes awarded. In the week, a camera would tail them and watch how they make the money and what they do for that charity such as doing advertising or volunteer work.
Ok, so here is my s-trip blog where you have to talk about your dream vacation. I never really thought about it before but I would love to go to Bermuda or perhaps Florida. They both have amazing attractions, including my favourite sport scuba diving. Bermuda offers many more wrecks thanks to the Bermuda triangle, but Florida is said to have a lot more fish species. Were I on land for most of the time in Bermuda, I would probably just swim, lay on the beach and read or do some different sight seeing. In Florida I would do a lot more walking and actual activities thanks to a few well known theme parks, like universal and Disney World. I would also love to see the alligator farms and do ziplines, as that is another lovely sport I favour.
