“Sex with Dr. Jess” Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelorette: Gizella!
Gizella’s legal educational background and previous employment experience at various courts and law firms has made her a self-starter, result-oriented and confident individual.

Modelling however was only the beginning for Gizella. Besides being a published model from Enrique Modeling Agency, Gizella then played a role in her first Independent Film, RSquare Studio’s “Twisted Pieces” Directed by Ryan Ellis. This was followed in part taking in tasks as a Creative Director, Makeup Artist and most recently, a spokesperson for Fashion Studio7 Magazine, covering Toronto’s Beauties of Asia Pageant and Canadian Philippine Fashion Week. Not only did she cover a pageant, but Gizella participated in two Canadian Pageants. On May 10, 2014 Gizella was a Nominee on the Persian Beauty Awards, the first ever Iranian Pageant held in 36 years at the Toronto Centre for the Art. A year before that on August 30, 2013 she participated in the Mr and Miss Pakistan World 2013 pageant and was adjudged the Second Runner-Up. During her time campaigning for these pageants, Gizella’s goal had always been to represent a beautiful mind as beauty is in her opinion is skin deep. After all, “what you see on the outside is just make-up that eventually washes off” she says. This is why it is essential for her to express the fact that “being a woman is a combination of both inner and outer beauty”.
Gizella wishes to “represent love for all and positivity”. As an Ambassador for Beauty Against Brutality, an organization which is a direct channel for the generous people who can help, Gizella says it is her duty to speak out in favour of humanity, proper health care and education and against social injustice, violence against women, child abuse, and poverty.
Gizella says she has endured many obstacles in her life that has brought her to where she is now in her career in both the Legal and Fashion Industry. For Gizella, winning is always an honor but at the end of the day she is already blessed and content with her previous accomplishments. She believes that this is just the beginning for her journey and looks forward to the opportunities that allow her to experience new places, meet new people and set a positive example for others.
Along the way she is hoping that prince charming will find his way and join her in building their empires with one another.
