Another Year Has Come And Gone (Highlights Of 2017)

Another Year Has Gone By


Happy New Years! The new year is finally here and that means it is time to reflect on the year that has gone by. A lot can happen in 365 days in regards to challenging situations, memorable moments and turning points. So I am happy to say that 2017 was filled with many wonderful moments that have positively impacted my life.


2017 In One Word


If I had to describe 2017 with one word it would be “progress”. The last year was fantastic and filled with many amazing moments and countless opportunities. I am extremely grateful for the people in my life and the unique developmental experiences that I had over the last year.


In 2017, I had the opportunity to experience many fantastic moments and here are some of the highlights.


  • Winning the Sheridan College “Candy Box Marketing Digital Excellence” Award.
  • Starting a lifestyle vlog to document my journey.
  • Crafting my personal brand and growing my social media following across different platforms.
  • Being a finalist for the CAMP “Student Marketer of the Year” award.
  • Reading 31 books in 2017 ranging from social media marketing to self-help.
  • Attending fantastic marketing conferences such as the Art of Marketing, Coffee with a Guru and the Dx3 Conference.
  • Going on a variety of adventures with loved ones such as Ziplining and cave exploring at Blue Mountain.
  • Gaining a better understanding of my goals, purpose in life and personal brand.
  • Making fitness a priority through rock climbing and healthy eating.
  • Growing my lifestyle blog, Living the Canadian Dream with a more refined focus.
  • Grinding hard to finish the last semester of my BBA Marketing Degree.


The End Of A Memorable Year


These experiences were just some of the many memorable highlights I had in 2017. I am truly blessed to literally be “living the Canadian dream” by striving towards my goals and living a positive life. So I am excited to be pushing forward into the new year on a positive note and I am looking forward to growing even more as an individual by beginning the next chapter of my journey (as I will be graduating mid-January).


The Start Of Something Great


The new year will definitely be full of new opportunities and challenges but I am truly optimistic about the future. So no matter what happens this year, I am looking forward to investing in my future and creating some memorable moments! Thus, I wish you all a prosperous, healthy and happy 2018!
