How wonderful it is to be Canadian! To live in a country FULL of opportunity!
After spending the weekend with Natasha exhibiting in Niagara on the Lake I just feel so proud.
The artist community is growing in Canada and many artists are giving up their “full time jobs” to become full time artists.
I think what is so powerful about the internet and social media is that it gives us artists a platform to tell our personal stories about life as an artist and what inspires us to create.
Gone are the days of hoping the local paper picks up my story or that I get featured in some sort of publication. Now I have the power to create my own media buzz about glamjulz and show our audience what I feel is most valuable about our products and what the glamjulz brand stands for.
Anyone who follows glamjulz knows it is our mission to support our community by giving back and we believe that every woman deserves the chance to show the world her sparkle.
When I wake up in the morning I think about this! It gives me purpose and reminds me that I can make a positive impact in the world.
The more I write and put myself out there, the more I want to share about myself and about the people who come into my life and make me a better person and artist. I find myself sharing stories about other artists who inspire me and collaborating with them to help them expand their reach. In turn they help us to expand ours. I’m also spending a lot of time with very powerful women and strong young girls who are working closely with us to show their community support for their own special passion projects.
As an artist, this type of work translates to freedom! This is what I have to thank my country for. The only thing that can stop any of us from achieving our dreams in this country is ourselves.
So many parts of the world are unsettled right now. Families who have lost everything need to find new homes and rebuild their lives. Children are malnourished and can’t afford a proper education and some people will never have the chance to marry the person they love or pursue their personal dreams.
We have it ALL! Canada is a country that represents freedom of choice. We are an inspiration to other countries, by each one of us being our personal BEST we can set a STRONG example for others.
Say it with me now, “I AM CANADIAN”
