What/Who inspired you to become an entrepreneur/young professional?

If you had one piece of advice for someone just starting out, what would it be?
A piece of advice I would give is don’t be discouraged. Although it may seem tough to find something right away or figure out what you really want to do, it will come with time and focus. It won’t always be a smooth ride but If you have goals set and a big picture, you are sure to make it. Nothing comes without effort.

I hope to be married and have a family. In regards to work, I hope to be settled in a position surrounded by people who encourage me and with those who I can encourage as well. I look forward to having a career that lets me travel since it is one of my many passions.
Given the choice of anyone in the world, who would you want as a dinner guest?
There are so many people I would love to talk to. One person that I would love to meet is Kate Middleton. I’m obsessed with the royal family and she just stands out to me. She is effortless and elegant and I would love to know what it’s like to be royal.
Where do you like to eat in Saint-Laurent/Mount-Royal?
There is a place called Yi Pin Xiang that has amazing dumplings. I love going there with my friends and a bunch of different plates for us to try and share. If you haven’t yet heard about this place, you should definitely try it out.
Address: 735 Boul. Decarie, Saint-Laurent. (514) 748-8877
Beer or wine? Any recommendations?
Definitely wine. I love a quiet night with my girlfriends and a glass of wine. I enjoy all kinds of wine whether it’s red, white or rosé. One that I recommend trying is called “14 Hands”. This red wine is a great way to unwind with a side of cheese and grapes.
What game or movie universe would you most like to live in?
I would love to live in the time of “Friends”. It is my all-time favourite show. I love the location and the cast. New York is one of my favourite places to see and the actors in the series are amazing. I admire the lifestyle, fashion and places in the TV series and I love every episode because it brings out all kinds of emotions.
