I was inspired to start The Local Charity after having gone through many trials in my own life. Having experienced abuse and being estranged from my father, I can relate to those who have experienced despair and hopelessness. The journey has taught me how to be strong, how to be independent, how to forgive, and how to love.

I am also a single mother to an amazing boy, and the journey has been challenging, and it has given me perspective on what it takes to overcome rough patches in life. I hope to contribute and inspire the folks I cross paths with towards living their best lives.

My parents have both exemplified qualities that contributed to my charity work. My mother modelled benevolence, and I’ve learned to be kind and grateful from her (I also acquired her sense of humour ). As an illegal immigrant, my father persevered through adversity and built an empire; I got my curiosity, strength, and entrepreneurial spirit from him.

For me, charity can be so impactful. The effort put in goes a long way in helping to improve lives. It’s often easy, usually inconvenient, but always necessary.

I was born in London, Ontario, and have spent the majority of my life outside of Canada. Between living in Colombia and Texas, I have seen the immense positive impact compassionate and dedicated people can have on their communities. Which is why I am passionate about making sure the
work I do brings compassion and dignity to those it reaches.

After moving back to Canada I decided to pursue a degree in Business Administration and have completed a certificate in Project Management. Beyond my academic endeavours, I seek to give back to the city that has become my new home, Toronto. The Local Charity enhances access to the necessary tools and skills for people in the community, and I am fortunate to be involved in allowing individual’s achieve their goals.
