Years on the team: Two
Birthday: February 10
Occupation: Social Media and Web Coordinator
Favourite Argos memory: I like being involved in the community so taking part in the female bullying information sessions, which is part of the Argos’ Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program, comes to mind. Also, participating in this year's Climb for Cancer was a great event to be apart of.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Catch up on sleep! Or hack away at my reading list (I’m still trying to get through A Song of Ice and Fire series).
How do you stay in shape in the off season? It's not the easiest. I have a weakness for desserts, especially cupcakes and deep fried treats, but it’s all about moderation and constantly being active. I like variety in my workouts so that can include running, going to hot yoga or taking a dance class, even trying something completely new like boxing or crossfit training.
When did you start dancing/cheerleading? Dancing has always been a part of my life, taking my first ballet class when I was four. I still take classes when I can.
What inspired you to try-out for the Argos Cheerleaders? I love sports and value how involved the Argos are in the community. Being involved in sports and dance is not only important to me, it’s also fun!
If you could make one dream come true, what would it be? Give every child the opportunity to play and have fun through sports and dance. They provide so much, both a good workout and also fun and great learning opportunities.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: I always make sure to have a notebook and pen, camera, and a novel I’m currently reading in my bag. You never know when you’ll have a few minutes to spare or when inspiration will strike!
What are you most excited about regarding the 100th Grey Cup? Our city gets to play host to the biggest game in Canadian football history. That's the very best part.
Players often have pre-game routines, what’s your pre-game routine? I’m worried I'll forget something (poms, a piece of my uniform, etc.), so I run through my checklist the night before, get a good night’s sleep and make a point to have a good meal before the game.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I’m in a role where I am constantly being challenged and making a difference in the community.
What or who is your greatest inspiration? My parents. They made the decision to move from the Philippines and start a new life in Canada so my brothers and I could have better opportunities. They’re the best examples of what hard work, dedication and playing an active role in the community is all about.
