DivaGirl Bachelorette: Alina!
Alina was born in Moldova and immigrated to Canada when she was 13 years old. She is fluent in Russian, Romanian and English. When she arrived she did not speak English and had to make a quick adjustment to her new home. She embraced Canada and its entrepreneurial spirit, using it as motivation to better herself and embark on a successful career. She is grateful to be able to call herself Canadian and proud to live in a country that supports its people and provides every citizen with opportunity. In fact, Alina was a contestant in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada Pageant. Her ambition in life is to never stop growing and developing herself as a person, constantly challenging herself physically, mentally and in her career. She recently traveled down to Lima, Peru to volunteer her time to help care for children at an orphanage. She describes the experience as the most influential moment in her life, driving her continued desire to not only give her time, but to continue to work hard so she can support these causes financially. She quotes Margaret Thatcher, “No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he only had good intentions.” Alina currently is the manager of a Cosmetic Clinic in Toronto, She puts in long hours and is passionate about providing the best possible care. Starting in the field at the young age of 17, she has developed an in-depth knowledge of the cosmetic beauty industry. Currently she is implementing a partnership between the Clinic and two charitable organizations that help support individuals and families that have been affected by cancer. She is empathetic to patient’s concerns and puts their well being as her highest priority
