Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN11?
I have a big personality and a big heart that can be felt in almost every interaction I have. Being confident and staying true to myself is essential, so I’m proud to say I got here from just being myself.
What is your strategy going into the house?
My strategy is to focus on keeping myself centered by eating three square meals a day and sleeping eight hours a night. Big Brother Canada is unpredictable, so if I don’t have to get ready if I stay ready LOL.
What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?
It will be difficult to avoid the constant paranoia other players might be feeling. I also think people that don’t pick up after themselves will annoy me. I just have to keep my mouth shut and jump over their dirty laundry.
How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?
I want them to remember me as the woman with a big forehead and even bigger dreams. I love making people laugh whether it’s with me or at me, so if I can bring you joy that’s all I need.
