A notable moment on Twitter? 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics: during such a short time of the Canadians and the world’s lives we have gathered together in social media and embraced so much joyous miracles. Tears, laughter, courage and pain has brought back our remarkable community.
Your best Tweet: Good morning Vancouver!
What did you want to be growing up? My dream was to be a chef. I studied and graduated from Dubrulle French Culinary School in Vancouver and worked over 10 years in our local restaurants. Sometimes dreams change for the better.
If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? My late brother, Harry. His life ended too short. Would love to make dinner for him and just talk about life.
Your claim to fame: When friends tell me that they have ran into a dog or experience a canine event, they immediately tell me they have thought of me. It gives me a warm feeling of being loved and at home where everybody knows your name
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? If I had a dollar bill for every hidden gem in Vancouver I’d be a millionaire. I see every corner stores, parks, mountains and trails glimmering with hidden treasures.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? Astro-Boy was my hero. Tezuka Osamu’s creation of a little robot with an ability to experience human emotions. There was so much precious lessons to learn about life for Astro-Boy and he loved Mother Earth. His mission was to save our Planet with his super powers. It is rare to see any superheroes like him nowadays.
If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why? Peas. I grow vegetables in my garden I find peas the most loveable with pretty sweet blossoms and they are easy to take care of with such strong roots. Not too much maintenance either.
Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition? I’d say all my followers deserve a recognition. Everyone has a unique talent, different experiences in life. Different pains and sufferings. I learn from each and everyone of them. Probably makes me who I am today.
Describe yourself in 3 words: A woman of Peace, Love and Integrity
