I was born and raised in Montreal, and spent most of my childhood in my own world, without paying much attention to the reality around me. It wasn’t until about 2 years into school that I realized you were actually supposed to listen to the teacher and memorize information! What for? I didn’t really know, but what I did know is that I simply was not interested in putting effort into regurgitating society’s version of reality on a piece of paper over and over again. Teachers would call this an “Attention Deficit Disorder”. But while I couldn’t pay attention to what did not interest me, I could easily spend hours playing with interesting bugs, luring animals into my backyard, and would have unmoving focus when working on artistic projects.
As years went by, a growing discomfort was being felt throughout the schooling process. I felt increasingly different and out of place, and experiences such as rejection from peers have led my mind to doubt my self-worth and purpose in the world. I didn’t have it in me to adhere to any of the major structures on which our society was built. The concept of money went right over my head, religion did not make sense to me, school felt like a boot camp, and the common American dream did not appeal to me. But despite an external pressure to conform, I couldn’t help but know that there was much more to life than what we have been told. My acknowledgment of the soul always kept me grounded in this knowing.
Shortly after finishing high school, I discovered a passion for photography and the art of makeup to go along with my existing affinity with music and drawing. I attained a diploma as a professional makeup artist, but despite having had opportunities to start a career in the field, I did not feel the need to take that route. My lack of interest when it came to the idea of having a successful career may have been perceived as misplaced priorities, but it all ended up making sense in the end.
A growing resonance with spirituality and existential questions led me to embark on a quest for truth. This certainly wasn’t the path that would bring the most income, but it felt richer than anything else. I would spend hours watching interviews, documentaries and reading about everything and anything offering a new perspective about life, one that challenged the status quo rather than leaving it unquestioned. Doing my research allowed me to connect the dots between my existing lack of resonance with the ways of the world and how this feeling was merely a pointer to the truth all along.
Despite a fear of receiving judgment from others, I decided to let it go and share my truth. This decision led me to create a facebook community originally designed to spread awareness about the corruption within the structures of our current world: (www.facebook.com/theLOVEvolution). The page gradually evolved into a resource of soul clarity where I would share the missing link between a need for change and a need to reconnect with our true nature.
In the summer of 2010, Joe Martino came across my work through the Internet and suggested that I collaborate with the Collective Evolution Team. Since this moment, my life changed. I ended up moving from Montreal to Toronto to work with this amazing team of souls dedicated to bring change to this world. My time here has been a wonderful journey of accelerated growth and play, and my contribution to the shift now involves the creation of videos, assistance with documentaries, the writing of articles, the writing of a book, individual assistance, and The SHIFT Project.
We each possess a gift, a piece of the puzzle that we came here to share with the world, and this is why I am doing what I am doing. Our inner light has the power to bring about a world free of boundaries in which we can share, contribute with our gifts, assist each other, play and experience life as we are naturally designed to. Imagine all of our lights combined together.
