Hi, in my first post it will be all about me!
I was born in Lugansk, beautiful city of Ukraine. I am fluent in Russian and can understand Ukrainian language really well. I came to Canada in 2007, with new hopes and dreams, looking forward for a new experience and friends. When I came to Canada my secret hope was that I could continue to work on my two passions: modelling and singing. My first modeling and singing experience goes far back… when I was only 5 years old and lived in Ukraine. Interestingly enough, regional pageant Miss Teen Canada-World 2013 became my first modeling experience in Canada.
But modelling and singing are not my only interests and hobbies…
Rhythmic gymnastics, for example, was a part of my life for 4 years but when I came to Canada, after watching Four Continent Championships, I fell in love with figure skating and have decided to use my skills from gymnastics on ice. So, when I turned 14 for the very first time in my life I’ve stepped on the ice. It was so much fun! I know that I still have to learn a lot but I believe that the hard work, enthusiasm and trust in your own abilities can bring you far… So far that faith brought me to the Preliminary Level and put me half way through Junior Bronze Skater. My home club is Port Coquitlam Figure Skating Club where every week I volunteer as a coach helper, helping young kids to learn how to skate.
I am a proud student of Terry Fox Secondary School. I feel very fortunate because my school recognises my passion in singing and gives me a chance to be regular volunteer during major school events (such as sport events and assemblies). In 2012 I was a happy recipient of “Service Award”.

I also love to travel, meet new people, make new friends and learn new things.
I am very excited that now, as a title holder, I have an opportunity to speak on behalf of teenagers of my city/province. My goal is to raise awareness in the community about teenagers who suffered from physical, emotional or sexual abuse. I strongly believe that all children and youth have a right to love and respect.
I want to send a message to all teens that “Nothing is impossible… if you work hard, follow your dreams and never give up – you can achieve everything”; you just have to trust yourself and dream big….
