  1. If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, I would want to spend it with my husband, parents, sister and brother.  I love spending time with them so it wouldn’t matter where in the world we were, it would be great!  But I guess if I had to pick a place…. It would probably be Hawaii!
  2. Is it sad if I say I would still want to be in this profession??  I actually really love it! But ok, if I have to choose…and assuming I could sing…I would be a singer!  But if I couldn’t sing (which is the case)…then I’d love to be a food critic or the person that tests waterslides to ensure they are still fun (yes, that’s an actual job!)
  3. My bucket list is to travel the world!  And perhaps go on the Backstreet Boys cruise with my sister. HA!

  1. I would spend the week in Japan with my family. There’s so many cool things to see and good food to eat! I love ramen, it’s literally my favourite food ever. I can eat ramen for every meal, every day.
  2. Being a restauranteur would be great! I’ve always loved cooking and just being around food. Sometimes I sit at home and watch food documentaries! I think being in a rock band would be cool too haha. Music is a passion of mine and it would be awesome touring around and performing!
  3. I really want to go to Antarctica for some reason, I think it would be a really neat experience! I just don’t know what I would do there haha. Learning how to sing and to play a bunch of instruments is on my list! And learning some new languages would be great too.

  1. I would love to spend a vacation in New York City with my family – exploring & enjoying broadway and tv shows, bridges, parks, Times Square, historical sights, and really good pizza.
  2. I think being a tour guide in an amazing location (I would have to do a bunch of travelling to figure out where!) would be a fun job.
  3. Someday I hope to zipline through the jungle, South America perhaps?!


Diploma in Dental Hygiene, University of Alberta, 2012

  1. I would travel to Singapore with my parents and siblings.  It’s where my family is from and I love visiting the city and embracing my culture. Not to mention eating, eating and eating some more!
  2. If money were no object, I imagine I would enroll myself into culinary school and start my own bakery.
  3. I’ve always dreamed of living somewhere outside of Alberta for a bit. I don’t know where…I guess wherever life takes me!

  1. For a relaxing, restful holiday, I would like to spend a week in Maui with my family. If I wanted a more fast paced, sight-seeing holiday I would love to go to Rome. I have always wanted to see the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, and the Vatican.
  2. I think a job as an archaeologist would be interesting. I have always been interested in history and find it fascinating to learn about how things used to be.
  3. The main thing on my bucket list is to travel. I would love to see the 7 wonders of the world!


Degree in Dental Hygiene, University of Alberta, 2020

  1. Anywhere and it would be with my good friends or close family members. If I were to choose a specific place though, it would most likely be Greece or Bora Bora!
  2. My dream job was to be a wedding or party planner/decorator! I just love being part of an event that brings family and friends together to celebrate a special occasion.
  3. I want to travel around the world, ride on a hot air balloon, learn how to ski, and maybe go on a cruise someday!

  1. If I could spend a week anywhere in the world it would definitely be on a beach.  My dream vacation is to stay in a hut on the water in Bora Bora. My travel partner would be my hubby, Avram.
  2. My life goal is to run my own animal rescue. It would have be someplace warm all year round, Mexico would be nice!
  3. One of my “bucket list” items is to pack a bag, head to the airport and hop on a flight to a random destination with no itinerary.

  1. If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, it would be in Bali. I’d hike the volcano (the one that you get up at 3am for), enjoy the sun and the sand and get my yoga on. Who would I want to spend with? Why my amazing sister of course! She shares a lot of the same interests as I do so I know we’d have a blast.
  2. My dream job would be to own a restaurant and have it be successful. I love to cook in my spare time. I’ve been told I’m a good cook. I guess you can say I’ve turned into a foodie. Food+ flavour=love
  3. So far my bucket list includes getting a tattoo which is huge for me because I do not like needles. I also would love to do a wine tour through southern America or Italy. Or both.


Diploma in Dental Assisting, NAIT, 2018

  1. If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, it would either be in Greece or Bali with my siblings or friends. I would love to see the beautiful views and especially the nice sunsets!
  2. If I could choose any career, it would probably be a food taster – perhaps an ice cream connoisseur.
  3. My bucket list includes going to all the Disneyland resorts all over the world, doing a volunteer mission trip, and ride an elephant in Thailand.
