Let me explain the importance of this.
When I was 19 years old I went through heartbreak. I split up with my boyfriend, moved to a new city, got a new job, and was living alone for the second time. I was trying to live this life as a newly single, independent young woman. My health was suffering and I was struggling to figure out my next step.
But every morning, I would watch CityLine when I got ready for work. It was comforting, and it made me feel more confident. There were style tips, recipes, home decor segments, and all of these things allowed me to envision myself living a full and beautiful life in this new phase.
Fast-forward MANY years, and I have a brand that I have built, being showcased on that very show. This is a full circle, incredible moment.
A huge thank-you to Janice Meredith and Tracy Moore for celebrating Canadian brands.
I wish I could go back to tell my 19 year old self this: hold on, good things are coming.
