Help Portrait Vancouver 2015

So there I was, super excited yet concerned on how people will actually receive hair/makeup services,  some of these people are people who have gone through hardship, addictions, poverty etc, and for one day, a team of amazing people make them feel special, they get makeup done, a portrait taken and they keep a copy of their photo, snacks, coffee and arts and crafts for children are provided.

I'm so glad I volunteered for this wonderful event, and I want to show my gratitude to Jenny Ruth for let me be a part of it.

ANCA Autism World Festival 2015

As a mother of 2 children with Autism, I thought it would be a great idea being a part of such an amazing event, honestly I've never heard of AWAF or Naturally Autistic before. So when I saw an opening to be a part of this I jumped immediately, the Key makeup artist made me one of the Team Leaders so the pressure was definitely on.

I discovered, ANCA is not a charity and they don't treat their autistic community as handicaps or disabled people, but instead people with special abilities, that are able to shine even in the darkest places, this even had such an impact in my life, I never saw my children the same way I did in the past. 

I saw artists, performers, dancers, singers, comedians and a new form of family through the head/director of this organization, the multi talented philanthropist Leonora Gergory-Collura, I was introduced to her wonderful husband Charlie and handsome son Anthony.

We did makeup for the performers, Emcees, Directors, Red Carpet hosts, this was also the moment I  met the wonderful Janet Walmsley and her beautiful daughter Jenny Story, funniest girls alive, they were the highlight of my day. 

The event was a success, I even got to receive flowers for the award ceremony =D same evening they had the closing ceremony dinner at the Best Western Chateau and we enjoyed a wonderful evening, I can't wait for next year !
