Words to live by? “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” Psalm 23:4

Dream job? Exploring the deep ocean or working at Kleinfeld’s and being on Say Yes to the Dress.

Most embarrassing moment? At one of my first Felions practices, I kicked my leg up so high that somehow I flipped over and fell flat on my face in front of everyone. Jenny had to stop the dance to make sure I was okay. I instantly jumped back up on my feet, wide-eyed and in shock, but we all had a good laugh and luckily, no injuries!
Who is your hero? My grandma, Trifona Bermisa. In 2014, she won both the Female Executive and the Overall Excellence Award at the Manitoba Filipino Business Council (MFBC) Awards Gala. She is a nurse, owns two businesses, has two children and three grandchildren, and has spent her entire life caring for others.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Make good decisions and don’t be a hero.
