How did we end up on your travel map?
I met a friend from here who was visiting Canada for the first time, so
I decided to head to Asia to check out her homeland. I’ve been here for five weeks. I’ve gone to Boracay.

You’re real nice. Is it because the Canadian stereotype, about being nice, is true?
I think, for the most part, we’re pretty polite, ha ha!

What is the most impolite thing you’ve done lately?
When did I last get wild? I guess while traveling, I just like to party. I like the beach or pool clubs rather than normal clubs. We don’t have a lot of pool clubs in Canada, but we do have a lot of water!

My town, Penticton, is surrounded by water, it’s a city by a lake. So I’m a water baby—I spend all my time there!

What else do you have back home?
I have a dog named Coco. She’s an Italian greyhound—that’s like a miniature greyhound!

And what keeps you preoccupied?
I’m just modeling right now, but I was a Canadian Football League cheerleader before I started traveling. It’s a lot of fun; I can do cartwheels and somersaults, ha ha!

Can you do a somersault in bed?
Sure? Actually, I don’t know what to say to that! I actually don’t know any dirty moves; I’m being Canadian right now am I not? Ha ha!

A bit. Our makeup artist thinks you look like Barbie. Ever get that?
I always get Kate Upton! I think she’s great. She’s very curvy and that makes her stand out.  Curvy girls often get a bad rap, though.  I think you can’t really be a fashion model [if you’re curvy], we’re more of the commercial kind.

As we did this shoot by the large building windows on the 20th floor, we were afraid the window washer might dangle down or something. Did that bother you?
No, I’ve shot a lot in public, so I’m pretty comfortable, ha ha! Like the beach and on a glacier with a bunch of people around. It was for a calendar, and we took a helicopter up to a glacier and shot up there–I was in a bikini, on ice! And whenever I shoot outside, a lot of people would stop and take pictures, but they usually move along.

You don’t think they’re creepers?
I don’t mind. I think it’s a compliment when people want to share photos. But if you’re doing implied nudes or something, I prefer they don’t take photos, ha ha!
