I was honoured to have been the emcee for this talent competition! I was able to watch the competition from a brand new perspective; it sure feels weird when I am not competing! Congratulations to C.Y. Royal Crown productions for a successful show and to all participants for all their hard work!

Pita bread and gods of Olympus, these were just some of the highlights of my day spent at Greek Day!!! I am an advocate for encouraging diversity and multiculturalism, and Greek Day in Vancouver gave everyone a chance to have a taste of Greece and its amazing cultural identity!

At Greek Day, I was honoured to have been interviewed by “Spill Ur Beanz”, a TV program set out to promote multiculturalism in Vancouver. I look forward to watching the segment and connect with Spill Ur Beanz for a future project!

Ahh! It is always so exciting to cheer on the runners and being a part of running events!!! Today I had the chance to volunteer at Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K as a medal distributor. I personally find it one of the most rewarding jobs because everyone will get to feel like they have accomplished something great since everyone is a winner!

Completing half-marathons and 5K courses are not easy accomplishments; the sweat, the training, and the determination of all the participants are especially inspiring! I wholeheartedly support all activities that encourage active & healthy living, and I cannot wait to run the course myself in future years to come!

I wish to take this time to thank one of my sponsors for the unwavering support that they have provided me throughout this journey! From skincare to healthy lifestyle choices, Sandra & Estie are truly professionals at their job! After every skincare session I have had at Derma Bright, my face is rejuvenated and my skin starts to breathe! Thank you so much for all the help for making sure my skin is as healthy as possible!

It is always a joy working with children and creating mini masterpieces on their faces! On June 25th, 2016, along with Miss Teenage Surrey 2016, Miss Teenage Southwestern BC 2016, and Miss Teenage Lower Mainland 2016, we were able to help out at Variety – The Children’s Charity of BC’s Picnic in the Park 2016. A charity that gives help for children in every corner of British Columbia, Variety BC is a foundation that provides health care and support for children with special needs.

At the event, we were given the job of face-painting for the children’s activity area. We had a load of fun drawing dragons, roses, deers, and other fun designs on the children’s arms and faces; our adorable customers were the best!

On Fri. Jun. 24, I was able to help out at the Surrey Food Bank, providing food assistance to many in the community.

13438783_1730485440559589_1038718481319060182_n

It was my first time volunteering at a food bank and I was not quite sure what to expect when I started the day. We were given a very informative orientation about who used the food bank and how the food bank worked before we headed out to help with the distribution line. We calculated the basic cost of living nowadays, and I was genuinely surprised at how much we could spend a month! It was a wake-up call to me as I realized how much money I had wasted on non-essentials and that there were a lot of people around in my community who didn’t enjoy the luxuries that I had.

13521868_1730485483892918_2096587773673987817_n

Working at the distribution line, we were able to meet all sorts of people regardless of gender, race, size, and religion. It was a lighthearted environment and everyone had an enjoyable time, whether it be distributing the food or receiving the food.

13438838_1730485443892922_8880400489684221401_n

Along with Miss Teenage Maple Ridge 2016 – Shawna and Miss Teenage Surrey 2016 – Anne, we all appreciated this educational, valuable, and inspirational experience; thank you so much to the Surrey Food Bank for the warm welcome!

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Despite the light showers, everyone was PUMPED at the walk/run and I had a fabulous time helping out with the great cause. I was beyond excited to celebrate today with families and dads from all over Metro Vancouver! A special BIG thank you goes to my dad for being awesome!

Did you know that 73 Canadian men, on average, are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day? Sooo…I did some research on how to fight/prevent prostate cancer:
1. Eat fruits and vegetables.
2. Limit consumption of animal protein. Diets high in red meat, dairy products and animal fat have frequently been connected with the development of prostate cancer.
3. Seek plant protein.
4. Green tea.
5. Whole grains.
6. Limit sugary drinks.
7. Choose organic foods when possible.
8. EXERCISE!!!

Dad! <3

3rd time this year volunteering for a Canadian Cancer Society’s event!!! Super thankful for everyone who came out even though it was a morning of pouring rain! I helped out at the survivors’ tent today and was able to hear inspiring stories of many who have successfully combatted cancer and made it through. About 2 in 5 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetimes and 1 in 4 will die of the disease, but cancer can be prevented when we keep a healthy, active lifestyle!

Join the fight, accept the baton, and go the distance! Any contribution will help to conquer cancer!

Ciao! I recently attended Italian Day and laughed my heart out as I helped to host the pasta-eating contest!!! Ahh…it looked really delicious (my favourite food is pasta and I was secretly drooling when I was watching the contestants)… Thank you to Anika, Angie, and Dee for allowing me to take part; attending the event made my day!

I spent a nostalgic Friday morning volunteering at my elementary school’s Sports Day! Visiting my old school brought back so many great memories; Grauer welcomed me with open arms when I moved from China to Canada and it was where I learned not only English but also many many other important skills as well!!! Thank you so much to my teachers’ continuous support! Today would not have been possible without your constant encouragements!!!!!!!

I had so much fun joining the adorable kids while they ran, hopped, and danced around the school field…I miss the good ol’ days when I went against my friends for potato sack races!!!
