What is your strategy going into the house?

My strategy is to find a group or person to connect with, preferably on day one or two. I want to have a killer alliance and play a rock solid social game, while working so hard in competitions! I’m not throwing comps!

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN10?

I have a quiet attitude with a really kind heart. I have a bit of sass and I feel like I was selected to highlight the sweet and spice!

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?

OMG, slop! Even the thought of no food is UNREAL!

I want to be remembered as a loyal, hardworking, strong Ethiopian woman from the Prairies.
