OUCH 2011

Wow, what a weekend. I had such an amazing time with my Ryerson Urban Hip Hop Union dance team at OUCH 2011 (Ontario Universities Competition for Hiphop) on Nov.26th in Oshawa!

Leading up to the competition, we worked so hard and it really showed in the end. And even though we didn't place, we absolutely killed it. Our theme was 'The Outsiders' and we brought the Greasers and Socs to life on stage, and I gotta say, our costumes were on point!

Anyway, there will be more photos to come, but until then, congrats to all the teams that competed! Here were the results:

1st place: Durham College
2nd place: Carleton University
3rd place: Queen's University

The semester couldn't have ended on a higher note. I love my UHHU fam! :)

2011 Gourmet Food & Wine Expo

Hey everyone!

It's been a hectic week, but thankfully, I did get a chance to squeeze in a bit of fun, amidst the essays, dance practices, and busy scheduling! My awesome friend Riley brought me along to the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo that took place last weekend at the Metro Convention Centre and it was such a fun experience!

Things I learned:
I am more of a white wine type of gal
How to use the rinsing stations in between tastings
Wine from Napa Valley is 'over-rated'
I am attracted to everything pink

Anyways, here are a few photos from the event!

Canada's Walk of Fame TV Broadcast - Video!

As you may have already known, from my previous posts about my experience at the 2011 Canada's Walk of Fame awards show, which was broadcast on October 23rd, I had quite the interesting opportunity as actress Sandra Oh's seat filler.

Well up until today, I hadn't actually seen the video for myself! So luckily, a friend of mine found it on YouTube and passed it along.

So if you'd like to see my brief appearance on the show, check out the clip below from Russell Peters' acceptance speech (begin at 6:55)

Hope you all are having a great week!

Videographer on the side...

Hey everyone!

Besides the fact that I am a bit sad I wasn't able to attend all the celeb events today (cough cough, Far East Movement, LMFAO, Kay, Natalia Kills, and others at New.Music.Live plus Drake at HMV), I thought I'd share a video that I shot and edited, featuring my fellow Vancity friend Ralph Escamillan. He is a phenomenal dancer, who wanted me to help with some filming! So check it out :)

DMZ Contributor

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts, but it's that time of year - assignment deadlines galore! So here's a quick update on another group I'm involved in: Ryerson's Digital Media Zone ( I got a part-time job in the Marketing/Communications department)

So far, I've written a couple blog posts, and I've added screen shots of them, but you can read them at the following links:

The DMZ is such a cool space, full of startup businesses and passionate young entrepreneurs! You can find out more about it here:
