Conference Treasurer

My life looks like...

I moved to Saskatoon with my parents and sister in the very cold October of 2006 from a tropical city which never goes below 25 degrees Celsius. Since then I got an accounting degree and have been working as an accountant since 2012. I come from a large extended family scattered across the world. Those who live in Saskatoon, all live 5 minutes from one another! I've attended Elim Church since I moved to Saskatoon, I've been part of the choir for as long as I remember and got involved with the Women's Ministry in 2016.

A few things I love...

I love God and the extravagant way in which He loves me. I love His word it's a constant reminder that God loves me in spite of my shortcomings

I also love my extremely loud but loving family, we have way too much fun together, and it's never a dull moment when I'm around them

I also love Singing, Salsa, Crossfit and travelling.

Why I believe in the mission of Mirror Mirror YXE...

I know what it feels like to struggle with the sense of belonging. I can relate to the experiences of young girls of not being well liked or struggling to fit in into a new or even familiar environment. I wish I had the tools that the mission of Mirror Mirror YXE provides when I was between the ages of 10-18 to equip me and empower me to know that I am enough, I fit in just the way I am and I can contribute an immense deal to my community.
