Hello from Sacha, Miss York Region World 2017!
I am thrilled to be introducing myself to you today, as it marks the beginning of sharing this exciting year-long journey with you all!
My name is Sacha and I am a professional actress, singer and dancer mainly appearing in the Toronto theatre scene. I am so excited about my adventure as Miss York Region World and the journey to Nationals! We’ll be spending a lot of time getting to know each other here before our final competition in July, so I would love to introduce myself and share a little about who I am 🙂 <3
With my career being Toronto-based, I have performed in various local theatres, but my wildest adventure performing was while sailing the Caribbean Seas on a very large cruise ship! We visited 4-7 countries every week including; Florida, Sint Maarten, St. Thomas, Bahamas, Mexico, Jamaica, and the Grand Cayman Islands. The cruise ship was my home for 7 months! 🙂
My love for all things creative started long before working art sea or even in Toronto. It began at a young age in elementary school when I was asked the popular question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, I passionately replied, “A Famous Singer”. Since then, my love for the arts has grown wildly. I was a student in the Arts York Drama program at Unionville High School and once I graduated early from high school, I went on to study at Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, a private career college in Toronto, where I received intensive training in my field.
What is your dream role?!
Well, my dream role is Nala in The Lion King. I am pretty much obsessed with that musical – it is my absolute favourite! The music, the colours, the drums – everything about The Lion King shouts earthy, yet vibrant and full of life! I once had a front row ticket to the Broadway show and I have told everyone who has heard my story, “I was so close, I could taste Africa!”. The experience was truly magical!
Continent of Africa?!
Speaking of the continent of Africa, I have travelled to two beautiful countries there – Uganda and Kenya. What a joy! I love the Ugandan and Kenyan cultures – the food, music and people are all so beautiful. I would visit again in a heartbeat! The trip that I went on 5 years ago opened my heart even more to our global community and showed me how incredible things happen when we link arms with our brothers and sisters all over the world and create the kind of world that we want to live in.
Health & Wellness?!
Last Fall, I launched my health & wellness business and I have an ever-growing passion for making healthier lifestyle choices. My love for vegan make-up, flowers and green smoothies all fall under this category!
Most people who meet me have good reason to believe that I am an extrovert, but what I find fun to reveal is that I recharge by myself while I journal, listen to music and reflect. I love quite time where I am free to dream – that is where my creativity is at its finest.
Miss Teen Ontario?!
I am formerly Miss Teen Ontario-World 2012, and I am still passionate about giving back to the arts community! I am motivated to establish my organization and support young aspiring artists along the way. I hope to inspire others to dream bigger than they have ever imagined and am excited for all that is ahead!
There is so much more to it, but we’ll have lots of time to get to know each other!
Sacha 🙂 <3
