Rumble Apparel Takes Vancouver

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

In 10 years I would like to see myself cultivating a family, working hard at the career and hobbies that I love, while not hindering my ability to continue travelling and seeing the world. 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

I believe that I have always had a tendency to be a bit self-sabotaging at times. I can criticise my successes and sometimes I can forget to be proud of what I have built so far because I’m always thinking 10 steps ahead. However, I have made leaps and bounds from allowing this to become my daily set back. I have spent the last year and a half really focussing on my self-care and taking the time to nourish the positive energies around and within me. Taking time to give myself praise for my successes, and not beating myself down for my short comings. With the help of daily affirmations, self-care, introspection and accountability, I am far from the all-consuming defeatist attitude that I used to have that would weigh down my everyday life. I still struggle with it here and there, but growth and self-love is a daily practice. We will never truly be done learning, growing and evolving. When I take the time to remember that, things get easier.

What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

Life itself is miraculous. Sometimes we take just our existence in this world for granted. To be able to be on this earth to enjoy and experience all that it has to offer. It took me a long time to start looking at things from a more well rounded point of view. A bad day is just a bad day, not a bad life. There is so much to discover, explore and learn about the world and ourselves. Sometimes we get so caught up in the small things that we forget to take a look around... Every day we are alive is a miracle in itself. Time is precious. We shouldn’t waste a second of it on things that don’t bring our hearts the happiness and peace we are after.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I have lived so many lives as an entrepreneur and have met so many amazing people along the way who have taught me so much, both about life and myself. Whether it was when I was a dance teacher, a fashion designer, a paralegal, or a personal trainer. Many of my friends are also amazing and successful entrepreneurs and multi-potentialites and I am so proud of their accomplishments, to see them all contributing to their communities in such unique and incredible ways is truly a blessing. At the end of it, we are all living to make our mark in one way or another, to help our communities, our environment, our families, friends, or maybe even just ourselves. To make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. It’s truly amazing to be able to wake up every day and be surrounded by so many people who are on a mission to be their best selves, inspire others, and live every day to their full potential. To be surrounded by a bunch of badass leaders supporting one another, and creating new generations of leaders with their inspiration and effort. To be able to live and be a part of that, is truly an incredible gift.

Model: Claire Foley 
Age: 15


With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

In ten years I see myself either in New York or in Los Angeles. Meeting top designers and photographers, and also I see myself walking all over the world with other amazing models. I’m living in a cute apartment with a lil dog, and maaa best friend. 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

I tend to be very awkward, soooo I’m slowly learning and meeting new people who aren’t as awkward. I am definitely just growing as a person and finding out new things about myself. I’m slowly becoming more comfortable with everyone I meet and I can’t wait for fun adventures!









What’s something you find miraculous about life?

I find people to be miraculous because there are SO many of them. There are so many undiscovered and different humans all over the world. I think that’s cool how there is a mystery and it keeps you guessing!

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I am living out the Day Concept because I believe that I am a very strong and driven individual and if I want something I do not stop till I achieve my goal. I tend to forget about my feelings and focus on business, I love what I do and I want to continue doing it for a long time.

Model: Aylah Jovanouski
Age: 15




With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

Ideally, I see myself with a corgi, sipping on some quality kombucha in a cute neighbourhood in my lovely brick partment in New York. When I’m not there, I’d like to be traveling the world performing and singing. Can I also get a cute loyal boyfriend, please?

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

A flaw I have is definitely being lazy. How am I growing? By trying to get off my ass!






What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

The concept of time is absolutely mind-blowing. And also how everyone is insanely different, like what a blessing.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I think Rumble is focused on unity and equality so I’m trying my best to go to protests, write down what I’m feeling and stand up for whatever I believe in. I’m constantly speaking my mind.

Model: Ellia Ruest
Age: 15



With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

Ideally, I see myself living comfortably, with a small flat in london, and owning lots of cats. I want to help women either by being a neonatal nurse, or a general diagnostic sonographer. Hopefully married, because I’m a hopeless romantic, and living out my 20s as best as I can What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

My anxiety and issues with my body have always been a struggle for me, and I’ve always told myself that no normal person could have the same issues as me (which is completely false). I’m working on growing as a person, gaining self confidence, and putting myself in situations that may make me uncomfortable, but are helping get over my anxieties.





What’s something you find miraculous about life?

The fact that you as a person are in control of your own life, and the way it plays out is up to you. I love that!

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I’m living out the Rumble Concept by doing everything that excites/and/or scares me! I want experiences I can remember, and stories that I’ll be able to tell to anyone. I want my life to be something people look up to and get inspired by, and everyday I strive towards that goal.

Model: Dorothy Yeung
Age: 24

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

I see myself as an elementary school teacher, married to my boyfriend with two children.  Ideally, I'd have a cat too (if we can find a hypoallergenic one because my boyfriend is allergic!)

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

I am highly sensitive, which can be both a positive and negative trait.  I feel things deeply, and because of that I may get hurt easily.  However, I am learning to embrace that sensitivity, as I think it allows me to experience things deeply and make strong connections with the right people.






What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

I will always be amazed at different personalities and perspectives!  One of my favourite things to do is meeting new people, because it allows me to be exposed to new ideas, and walk away with fresh insight.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

The idea that Rumble is inclusive to everyone really speaks to me - As someone who works in the field of education, open-mindedness and inclusiveness is not only something I do for my job, but something I truly believe in.

Model: Sydney Lau
Age: 17

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

I’m very much a planner, so in that sense this question should be a very straight forward answer, however when it comes to the future, I’m a very strong believer in going with the flow and trying not to control your destination too much, but to rather enjoy the journey life takes you on and the various opportunities it presents for one to grow. The only thing that I see for myself in 10 years is that wherever I am at, that I am truly happy in myself as well as my job and that I continue to evolve into a lifelong learner.  I also hope to still be able to travel and explore our beautiful world, as I believe there is still so much to discover.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

One trait that I have carried with me from a very young age was that I have very high standards for myself, now this is not a bad thing, most of the time this is what garners me the very results that end in so much success and that great feeling of accomplishment. However, there are those times where it is much more beneficial to let things go and just let them be as they are, so that is definitely something that I am learning how to embrace.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

I am continually amazed by all the miracles in life, but the one that always leaves me speechless is the fact that your body works! This might seem obvious but if you think about it your heart beats, your lungs expand, your eyes blink, your skin regenerates, your blood pumps through your body, you inhale oxygen and exhale carbon monoxide. Without you even needing to give a second thought, your body just does all of these things from the moment you enter into the world and take your very first breath - you in itself are a miracle.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

Don’t let the little things hold you back from doing what you love, something that I didn’t quite realize the importance of this phrase until the past couple of years. I was so scared to start my own blog and youtube channel scared of what my peer influence at school would think, but when I finally made what seemed like a leap a realized that if people truly love you they will accept, embrace and love you for you regardless if you are the popular kid, earn top grades in your class or if you have a blog or a youtube channel or not. I have learnt acceptance and confidence comes from within myself, to set my own achievable goals and to celebrate everyone’s individuality.




Model: Nalani Wakita
Age: 24

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

10 years I hope to finally master making my bed in the morning. 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I don't like to see anything as a flaw, we as humans are growing continuously, right now I am learning to love myself.

 

 What’s something you find miraculous about life?

It's pretty miraculous how things work out when you put out the right intentions + good vibes, stay strong, stay positive. Also Outer space, and the dream world.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

We are in it together, I am passionate about creating unity and a sense of oneness within community.

Model: Sophie Sugars
Age: 17 

 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I hope to be happy, healthy and living out my dreams. Possibly have a strong relationship and be surrounded by people I love. A dream would be to go big as a model and actress and travel as much as I can.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

A flaw that I've always had growing up was how short I am. It runs in the family and it definitely makes it harder in the modelling industry although I am learning to accept and embrace it.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Something I find miraculous about life is that everyday is a learning lesson, you grow and perceive new things each and every day.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

How I am living out the RUMBLE concept is with my own girl gang, @fatalwives. My best friends and I run an account on Instagram that we like to post different and unique types of pictures that we take along on our crazy adventures together. On a side note, I use Youtube as another platform for my own videos that I film, edit and produce.

Model: Avery Konrad
Age: 24 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

10 years!? Hopefully I will have rescued at least 10 dogs by then.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I'm not the best at trying things. Working on being less judgemental of myself when I start something new no matter what it might be.

 

What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

I honestly think everything happens for a reason. Life has a way of bringing people into your world at the right time for different reasons (good or bad) to teach you new things about yourself. I think that's pretty cool.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I'm living out the RUMBLE concept by constantly surrounding myself with kickass women who are pushing themselves creatively everyday.

Model: Hana Nordin
Age: 16 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

In 10 years, more than anything, I hope to be happy with my career choice and what path I choose to make. At the moment, I'm still figuring out what I'll end up doing, but what I really want is a job that I can look forward to waking up and going to. My current interests are dance and modelling, so I hope to continue exploring those hobbies for as long as possible.

Model: Debora Zhang
Age: 20

 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In ten years, I would hope that I’m at my happiest doing something I love for work while exploring fun side hobbies. Ideally, I’d still be keen to learn new things and hope to be surrounded by good people – I wouldn’t be anywhere without my supportive friends and family. I hope to see more of the world in ten years (travelling and exploring new cultures is definitely a life passion) and I very much want a Shiba Inu. I would also like to take cooking classes so that I can finally eat what I cook… I really love food.

 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

The idea of being multi-faceted / a multipotentialite really wows me. For reference from Wikipedia, “a multipotentialite is a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life. Multipotentialites have no “one true calling” the way specialists do.”

There are so many ways to box someone into a category, and label them off as a person who ‘only does so and so’ at first glance. The more people I meet, and the better I get to know them, I understand how everyone has the potential to pursue many of their passions and talents without boxing themselves into one genre. Some of the most inspirational people I look up to have interests that range from electrical engineering to blogging, building planes to walking run way shows, or teaching Yoga while leading hardware companies. I believe that while people do have a label (such as a job title), it is definitely possible to have more than one. Picture what a person with the following labels would look like: sister / police officer / ballerina / mathematician. It’s so interesting to know that “labels” are socially constructed by humans but we also feel the need to follow them, we were always asked as kids “what do you want to be when you grow up?” but the idea of having more than one job was not common. It’s exciting to know that each individual is capable of so much.

 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I have a habit of putting all my energy into something, whether it’s a project or TV show, and burning out very quickly. I still need to work on prioritizing where my energy goes and taking the time to process at the end of every day, so that I can re-fuel and keep on going.

 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I am living out the RUMBLE concept by stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out as many new things as I can. I joined a dragon boating team, learned a new coding language, and met new friends from Instagram this summer; I’m still working on trying not to care what people think so much by just focusing on myself, it’s comforting to know that practice makes perfect!

What's something you find miraculous about life?

You never know what is going to happen. Life never fails to surprise you.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

A perceived flaw is my fear of rejection, which often stops me from pursuing opportunities. To overcome that fear, I try my best to step out of my comfort zone.

 

 

 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

Ideally in 10 years, I will own an apartment in downtown Vancouver and have 2 corgis.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

l have so much to learn and so much potential to grow. I would love to continue to meet like-minded passionate influencers and bloggers from my community and form genuine and valuable connections.

Model: Tomoka Matsui
Age: 26 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

Creating interesting content, travelling and working remotely, and collaborating with other creative individuals.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

Allowing other individual's opinions affect my unique style and goals. I have been working to become more focused and confident in my own style and personality.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

How creativity can connect people from all walks of life. 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I am currently working on collaborating with passionate people to create as much interesting content as I can. I feel fortunate that these collaborations also lead to valuable friendships as well!

Model: Emily Dolan
Age: 20

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

Ideally, in 10 years I see myself working in the fashion industry. I want my name to be established by then, buying the next season’s clothes for a huge company.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

A perceived flaw I have always had (in my opinion) is how far apart my eyes are. I used to get teased pretty bad in high school for looking like an alien and I would always let it bother me until one day I came across one of my favourite models Rachel Hilbert, who used to get teased for looking like an avatar and I was like you know what this is what makes me unique and different looking than everybody else. Every since then it has kinda became a nickname with my close friend group and it just grew on me. Now I love being a little alien.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Something I find miraculous about life is truly that everything happens for a reason. I know that sounds super cliché but as one of my wise friends said to me, the universe will legit hook you up if you let it. I believe if you have enough trust and confidence in yourself things will work out just the way they are meant to be. I am also a huge believer in karma, which I find also to be very true. If one day I am in a negative mindset I find everything to go wrong. VS. being in a positive mindset then I find myself to be having the best day.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

My friend Malick Issa and I were dying to shoot this past summer when he told me he had a few pieces to shoot for a company called Rumble. I was immediately down and as soon as I saw the clothes I fell in love with every piece we were shooting that day and I found myself asking “where can I buy everything!!!” I began doing some research online and found myself relating to what this company stands for. Even from just looking at Rumble’s Instagram page I could see they were all about building women up which I find is truly amazing, and something this world needs a lot more of. I am currently modelling through an agency in Saskatoon called STRAY Model Management which stands by the same concepts of self love and confidence, which I find in this industry and like I said, just in life in general is something we as women could work on as a whole and do a lot more building up of other women we see instead of tearing them down. How much more enjoyable would that be!

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

I feel my body is wrapped in layers of flesh. I feel my skin bandaged around me, enclosing fat that would otherwise spew. I spent the last half a decade binging and vomiting and then telling myself I don’t have a problem. Purging gave me the false sense that I was in control and every time was “the last time”. Bulimia is exhausting and bulimia is shameful but bulimia wasn’t really bulimia until I could admit my eating disorder.

There comes the realization that I curl up and rest in this body, I rise to sunlight in the body, I transport to continents in this body, and this body is home. It’s unrealistic to think that half a decade of vomiting will cease with the thought of self-care, but I know my triggers. I know what living habits work for my psyche and I know that bulimia is a fix that doesn’t fix.

 

Opening an email is like being attacked by lions. The pings from Facebook Messenger sound like hyenas laughing. For someone who is all over social media, I struggle with correspondence over the World Wide Web. I itch with uncertainty and feel a lack of control when awaiting responses. My failure to reply lingers with me and is prompted by periodic guilt pangs. 

Growing older has made me move on from emotionally draining activities. I’m not about to exchange, “my apologies for the delayed responses” until one of us dies. And whatever notifications are coming my way, dread won’t control the outcome. I can only take a deep breath and plunge into my inbox- hopefully to help the online anxious like me.

 


What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

Infuriated, your blood boils and your mouth foams with insults. The last straw broke the camel’s back and you’ve decided to dissociate from this relationship. But time elapses and your heart softens and your lips drip with honey. It's magic how connections can mend and how humans can turn around from the breaking point. Sure, you could focus on the scar tissue, or you can see injuries as inevitable but healing as miraculous. 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

The fear of looking stupid is holding you back. When I feel inspired, I convince myself to act on it and I give myself permission to be excited. I’ve learned to not be so embarrassed about my personal projects. This is because once every couple of years, I sink into a spell of melancholy. During these spells, I loll and drape over my days where nothing can rouse me. While I try to reassure myself that the depression will pass, I really wonder when I’ll move again. This fear is much greater than the fear of looking like a fool.

Model: Kelly Chiu
Age: 22

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

The Kelly Chiu in 10 years litigates disadvantaged youths against exploitative workplaces in either Toronto or New York. Her weekend ritual either involves trekking around the city to discover new cafes, or honoring her secret dream of becoming a SoulCycle master. That Kelly continues to tickle the hearts of her loved ones with her ridiculous#kellypuns and inappropriate jokes. But most importantly, at that point in life, she is finally able to confidently send “going to whole foods, want me to pick you up anything?” to boys on Tinder/Bumble (or the equivalent then) in French and German.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

Self-doubt had silenced me, and conditioned me to wait for others’ approval instead of giving my wants and needs priority. Self-doubt had either put my plans on hold or disregard my own judgment so I could live my life the way I believe others would want me to live instead of how I want to live. Self-doubt had me believing that what I want to do would never as great as what others suggested. 

So.. I am growing out of this mentality by spontaneously booking a one-way ticket to Europe for the fall and only returning when I feel like it. #makeithappen2k17

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

A friend of mine once said: “if you don’t get that one thing you desperately want right now despite how hard you have been working for it to become yours, it simply means that it is not your time yet.” 

Timing is everything, ranging from relationships to career related or life-changing decisions. You can be so ready for that promotion you have been working so hard towards and very patient about in December, but to only realize you no longer want it when it actually happens few months later. You can finally be ready to right a wrong, but to only find out that the person has already closed the door on the chapter you two once shared. You can finally lift your head up and walk away from the past, but to suddenly receive that one text you have always been yearning for. And, that is what makes life miraculous.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

Currently living out the RUMBLE Concept by only focusing on the positives. It is now my mission to highlight and remember at least one positive quality of the person/people I am meeting, the friend(s) I am catching up with, and the situation(s) I am entering or exiting. Being jaded and petty turned me into a devoted “glass half empty” believer, which has been very emotionally draining. Nevertheless, these negative experiences actually made me realize that the type of attitude you maintain really makes an impact on your perception of reality.

Model: Nancy Li
Age: 23

 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

In the next decade, I hope to be a lawyer who doesn’t take herself too seriously and the founder of a boutique fitness studio in Vancouver. I hope to use my artistic and legal training to find creative solutions at interstices of art and law. I aspire to create a sanctuary for fitness enthusiasts to ease their minds and break a sweat while focusing on introspection in order to recharge and find balance in their busy lives. 

The perfect weekend consists of sweating it out at a morning spin class before brunch or running along the SeaWall for a dose of sunshine and salty air and then catching up on current exhibitions at my favourite art galleries. An evening well spent isn’t complete without with a glass of wine before bed and taking a moment to be grateful for all the little things that accrue to provide a lifetime of memories to treasure.

 

 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

I like to worry. I worry about little things, big things and all the things in between. I speculate, create hypothetical situations in my mind and keep myself up at night thinking about every ‘what if.’ However, more often than not, worrying has been detrimental and stalling progress rather than being helpful in moving forward. In the past year, I’ve learned that worrying solves nothing and creates unnecessary barriers. Sometimes spontaneity and learning to focus on making the most of each present moment is the key to unlocking happiness that I didn’t know existed.

 

 

 

 

What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

I truly believe that one door closes, another one opens. With the right amounts of patience, perseverance and love, amazing things will happen.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

It’s important to remember to be kind to myself and to other girls who share more of the same struggles, insecurities and heart aches than I may think. Some struggles are universal, but this doesn’t mean that I believe in conformity. Rather, I focus on being the best version of myself to be able to better support and love those around me.

Model: Cheyenne Francescutto-Dehier
Age: 23
 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In the future I hope to be happy with my career, family and friends, while continuously pursuing to better myself. I don’t believe I will have everything figured out, as I think the whole process of life is learning, growing and developing; continuously. 

I just hope to have known I tried my best and believe the events that occurred in my life will lead me exactly where I am supposed to be. Believing that no matter what everything will always be okay, trusting and surrendering to whatever may be “che sera sera.”

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I don’t have a poker face. My biggest strength of being outgoing, expressive and talkative can be my biggest weakness. People can always read my emotions, and thoughts. I believe it is important to adapt to situations, and act appropriately within them. As much as I love to talk and share my opinions, I must also understand when to keep my thoughts to myself. The humbling experience of self-awareness. 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

The constant ability to regrow, and heal, everything in this world is constantly being replenished overtime. It is amazing to see how the most broken of things will slowly overtime regrow into something spectacular. 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

This school year (September 2017) I have decided to embark on a year of study abroad in France, Toulouse. Accomplishing my dream of one day living in Europe for an extended perios of time. This event brings so much excitement to my body, but also worries to my mind. I love that it has not even begun yet though it has me being pushed mentally and physically. I cannot wait to see what experiences I encounter that will form me into my future self. The growth zone as individuals is always outside of the comfort zone, this is a concept I must remind myself when I am faced with challenges. Bonjour La France!

Model: Catherine Xu
Age: 18 

 

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years? 

Still young, still ambitious, still willing to grow. I fear stability. I see myself travelling constantly back and forth between New York City and San Francisco, searching for opportunities to grow my potential career in the finance industry. I see myself becoming an entrepreneur in the fashion industry. I see myself still pursuing love, but not settling down, yet. I want to open myself to paths that allow for endless possibilities. 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

At times, I am self-centered. I want the best for myself, which, sometimes, will inevitably come at the expense of others. This will likely always be one of my biggest flaws. I am taking measures, however, to become more aware of the people I hurt in the process. I am learning to maintain self-assurance, while simultaneously considering those around me.

 

 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

That everything seems to happen for a reason. Life is pretty fair. 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

Growing into an adult, while still acting like a kid. Always keeping logic in mind, while making stupid mistakes at the same time. Becoming the best version of myself, but never forgetting that nobody’s perfect.

Model: Dana Mammadova
Age: 22

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I see myself having access to better equipment and a team in order to create on a larger scale (in terms of videography, photography, design, etc.). I plan to be working with some of my favourite artists. I’ll also be able to start up projects unrelated to creative work, something on the humanitarian side, or perhaps a blend of both. I will hopefully be doing something about youth homelessness, mental illness, and addiction; that has always been an issue very close to my heart. I also have a huge issue with the prison system (especially in the United States), and I definitely see myself involved with that and rehabilitation. Ideally, I’ll be surrounded by people who understand me. I’d love to meet more individuals who are looking to do good things in this world.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I have a lot of difficulty with confidence and believing in myself. Although I may have great ideas, I often find myself keeping quiet about them because I’m too shy to say anything. Shyness in general is a huge issue for me. And the problem with that is, if you’re too shy to start you never end up learning and you always feel like you know less than everybody else. It’s hard for me to be vocal about projects I’d like to partake in because I feel as though I’m not ‘good enough’ to do so. I’m always anxious about making a fool of myself. Lately, I’m forcing myself to do things that scare the crap out of me and make me feel uncomfortable, things that I may suck at, things that I have to learn to be better at through practice.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Something I find miraculous about life is how surprising it always is. Have you ever been in a situation where you think to yourself “holy shit, 5 years ago I would have NEVER seen this coming, I never thought I’d be lucky enough to be here”? I’ve had a few moments like that, moments that really blew me away. Sometimes things happen that you think are too good to happen in this lifetime, or to you. Yet life has the ability to pick you up, help you grow into the person you’ve been dying to become, and show you that everything you love is not really out of reach like you once thought it was.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I think I live out the RUMBLE concept in my everyday life, simply by preaching the whole “you’re a badass, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, don’t let anything stop you” thing. I also love to help people in general, just with everyday things they may struggle with. I never want anybody to feel like they’re alone. My upcoming video and photography projects are going to touch on a lot of painful subjects, which in my opinion is something we need more of. I’d like to shed light on things I’ve struggled with in order to help younger girls (and boys) deal with them in better ways than I have when I was younger.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

I can’t quite explain the whole concept but this quote, I will always live by. “Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.” – E.E Cummings

The quote is about taking risks and trusting yourself, but mainly, always keep loving.

 
With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself having lived in the cities I aspire to live in right at this moment. I see myself as a boss lady holding myself accountable of my dreams, like starting my own company and bringing ideas to fruition. In 10 years, I would also like to have started my own family and surround myself with loved ones and friends.

 

 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

There are many ongoing flaws that I’m constantly finding out about myself - I think I try to focus on developing one every year. For example, one of my new year’s resolution this year is to continue getting out of my comfort zone. It’s easy to revert back into comfort zones so constantly pushing yourself out of it is easy and difficult at the same time. I was in a rut and wanted to get out there, so I gave myself the goal of moving away for work while I am still young and unattached. It’s definitely been nerve-wracking and I’ve had many doubts during the transition, but when it happens, I’ll at least be happy knowing I made it happen.

 

 

 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

The fact that there’s a silver lining in everything – in every aspect of your life. You always have a choice to think on the positive spectrum, and when you do, everything just seems so easy. The ability to switch mindset and think more optimistically gives you so much power and flexibility, it really makes or breaks you.

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I see myself traveling the world and modelling internationally. Playing dress up is probably my favourite thing in the world, and I've invested too much time, money, and soul for it not to become my career. 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

A flaw I have is being quiet when I'm uncomfortable. I have taken the initiative to surround myself only with people who encourage me to leave my comfort zone and bring me out of my shell. I'm amazed by how social I can be when I'm in a good mood so it is now my life motto to not sweat the little things too much anymore.  

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Life is miraculous in the sense that everything always rights itself over time. It's amazing to live in a world where opportunities are being created exponentially, and women are no longer afraid to go and take what they want.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I'm paving my own way to the future that I want. When I was rejected by agencies I decided to become my own agency for myself, organizing my own shoots constantly, growing my network from the bottom up. As a woman I believe it is very important to create a path for yourself if there isn't one laid out for you. It's pretty f*cking scary starting out with no direction but when you want something bad enough and you surround yourself with the right people to get you there, you're your only inhibitor. All they'll hear is RUMBLE as you shoot for the stars.

Ideally traveling the world photographing beautiful, interesting humans. I'd love to be a Mum, and have my family by my side during this adventure (and maybe put them to work as my photo assistants 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I truly believe that no one has flaws. Why should something that is different not be classified as beautiful and unique - it is our imperfections that make us, and life interesting!

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Women. We are such powerful beings - I mean holy shit we can create and nurture a life with our bodies! There is something magical about photographing women too, you'll notice I rarely shoot dudes! 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I try to live my day to day life as care free and creatively as possible. Don't sweat the small stuff and be kind, always!

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

Ideally in 10 years I would be a professional photographer for National Geographic shooting somewhere like Thailand or Tibet. I want to be able to spend my life experiencing different cultures, being outside and doing something different every day. I want to be able to share the way I experience the world with other people and maybe give them a perspective they've never seen before.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

I find the connections I make in unlikely places miraculous. The fact that I can meet someone on a beach in Mexico and three years later they're at my Mom's wedding in Sechelt is crazy to me. There are so many individuals I've met on the street, at music festivals or foreign countries that have turned into life long friends, employers and family. You never know who you're going to meet so be kind, and open to the possibilities.

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

WOMEN. I think women are truly gifts. We are so strong and I realize this the older that I get and the more bullshit I go through. When I walk through the halls of my law school and I look at the class portraits from the early 19th century, all I see are men. Look at us now, killing the game!! I mean, we populate this earth…we deserve to be treated like queens ok?!

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I am too woke for my own existence and most other people. I overuse many words, including "woke". 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Everyday I awaken with the comfort of being a kitten mother - this offers me a sense of fulfillment nothing else can.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

Lianne and I are going on our 7th year of undying friendship. We met at a party in high-school and proceeded to drunkenly compliment each other for 15 minutes. We view this as both a clothing and engagement shoot. She appreciates my sense of sarcastic humour like no one else does (willingly).

Well, my dad's ever endearing nickname for me growing up was Whiner Rymer (thanks dad). I'm focusing on optimism and letting go of things that are out of my control. Also, a new nickname-I'm open to suggestions! 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

Tamara pretty much nailed it. I'm blessed with the ultimate girl gang that loves and supports to the ends of the earth.

Im going to treat this question like an “in my dreams” scenario – with my family on a yacht, vacationing in Europe for the summer. As travel is a passion of mine, it would be a dream come true to share that with my family.. and do so in style!

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

Overcommitting myself sometimes with best intentions to do it all. So I try to keep a calendar and make sure I save time for myself. But really I have many flaws, I just try not to focus on them and instead focus on the positives... the more I do that, the happier I am.

 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

My daughter and getting to experience life again through her eyes.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I try to make the most of every situation – whatever life brings and always have fun doing it. Never be afraid to try something new or stir things up. For instance, when life threw me a curveball and I was forced to change my routine, I started making jewelry. I had no experience or any idea what I was doing but it resulted in bringing me and I hope others a lot of light and happiness.

Somewhere on a tropical shore (maybe Guam?). Endless adult beverages. With a special lady. You know… to be living Drake’s life.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I admit that I can be a perfectionist at times but I am getting better at squashing whatever part of ego that is that drives to do inane things to the point of madness and accepting that perfection is only concept.  

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

Everybody is unique with their own destiny and that everybody's journey has stories that are dying to be told. It's a shame that sometimes we focus on the things that divide us instead focusing on the things that unite us. 

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

I've come to terms that life is finite; don't be afraid to do stupid shit. It's the only way to learn.

In 2027, I’ll be living in an apartment with floor to ceiling windows with the man who shares the same values and laughs at the same jokes. We’ll have 3 children and 2 dogs. Ever since I was little, I had this love towards children and dogs. All these years, I’ve always wished for the same things, my goals in life have never changed. At 32, I’ll have my initial plan to open up my own dog shelter and orphanage. Where? China. Why? There needs to be more kindness in the world, too many of us take what we have for granted, and too many of us never had a chance to live.

A dog mom, a homeowner, and starting a great family. I want to be in a good place emotionally and fulfilled by my career doing something I love, and proud of my accomplishments in the previous decade with no regrets.

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I'm pretty scared of failure, and it prevents me from trying many things as I'm worried about having to start anew. I struggled with this throughout my university life, and it’s been a slow process getting over it and building up willpower to try things. Now that I’ve graduated and ventured into adulthood, the pressure is even more immense to make something of myself. Recently I’ve been trying to just take things a step at a time and be content with trying my best.


What’s something you find miraculous about life?

I find the fact that life is thriving on this planet incredibly miraculous. In the vastness of space, bits of material came together and subsequent chemical reactions created an environment that is conducive to life. Through evolution, life diversified to become all the species we see today, and I just find it awe-inspiring that life has proliferated into so many unique forms.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept?

In the past I was distracted too easily and didn’t prioritize myself, so I’m learning to appreciate myself more and the loved ones around me. I’m grateful for having some amazing friends and a loving mother, and moving forward I’m trying to focus more on the positives rather than the negatives.

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I would most likely be working as a healthcare professional. My sister and I would be running an animal sanctuary that we started, which is something we’ve been hoping to do for a long time. I see myself living in an moderately spacious home with my family of 4 and my dogs. I'll be leading a busy life inundated with commitments, yet I'll still have time for my loved ones, and for taking occasional luxury vacations (very ideally).


What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing? 

I’m a pushover. Often times I find myself letting others walk all over me because I don’t want to rock the boat. Thus, I’m learning to build a more assertive attitude by focusing on my responsibilities and openly expressing my feelings and opinions.


What’s something you find miraculous about life?

There’s nothing like the unpredictability of life. I often wonder how my future will unfold. Are the odds in my favour? Am I ready for the challenges that loom ahead? Although sometimes I wake up in the morning exhausted and plagued by an existential crisis, I’m glad that the future is a mystery. Unpredictability prompts us to unleash our potential and to be fearless. There is thrill in giving our best and aiming for goals we weren’t sure we’d achieve, and there is satisfaction as we earn the achievements that we once thought was unattainable.


How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

I’m living out the RUMBLE concept by surrounding myself with positive influencers in my life. These are the people who constantly encourages me to work harder, who are my pillars of strength, and who motivate me to become a better version of myself.

With no inhibitions, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years?

To be quite honest I’ve tried to stop planning my life so far ahead. I’ve always been an over-thinker who has always been scared of “what ifs”  and been plagued with the idea that I’m not living up the ideal life I’ve meticulously planned before. So to keep it simple,  I hope to be  happy with my life in 10 years. To be happy with myself, to be happy about the relationships I have, to be happy with the work I’m doing, and despite having inevitably sad or difficult days, that I will have the resilience to bounce back and keep living my best life. …Although it wouldn’t hurt to have a loving husband, maybe a kid or 2 and to have paid off my student loans too lol 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?
I think my greatest flaw has been believing I have too many flaws. I’ve always struggled with my self-confidence and being unsure of myself. I’m constantly in my head, questioning what I’m doing and feeling incredibly awkward inside. I’ve let my self-criticisms talk me out of so many opportunities and experiences because I had already decided I’d fail before trying. I glorified the idea of self-awareness and took the concept of humility too far; I felt like I was being intelligent and introspective by realizing that I have limits and telling myself that I’m not unstoppable/infinitely capable. However, with age and being exhausted with all this self-hate, I’ve consciously tried to catch and stop myself from going down self-critical holes. When I catch myself in a rut, I try to push myself out of my comfort zone. I’ve also learnt to trust others and lean on them for encouragement. While it’s important to be humble and to curb your pride, I’ve realized you should not constrain yourself by your perceived limitations. Sometimes when you really want something, or want to try something, you must push through; Oftentimes you’ll realize those limitations were there to be broken and for you to grow. It is vital not to confuse insecurities with limitations. I’ve learnt that I should not feel guilty about feeling good about myself. Pride can be bad, but it’s very important to celebrate your strengths and to be proud of what you can do and what you have accomplished. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that; in fact I encourage that everyone to try it! Overall, I’m still unsure about many things in life, but I am working on at least being sure of myself :) 

What’s something you find miraculous about life? 

The miracle of change and time. I once read this quote by C.S. Lewis “Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.” How insane is that?! I know this seems like a such a silly analogy but even take something as arbitrary as your hair. You start of with short hair and decide to grow it out. Everyday, it’s growing by such small increments that you don’t notice any change in yourself. But suddenly you see a friend who hasn’t seen you in a couple of months and they comment “wow your hair has gotten so long!” Of course this can be applied to your growth as a person and be all deep too. Another more serious example is the healing of heartbreak. One day you feel hopeless and like your world is crashing in on you, yet slowly as days pass, you suddenly realize that your smile has returned, that there’s joy in the world and you don’t feel so damn broken anymore.

How are you living out the RUMBLE Concept? 

From a very young age I was surrounded by a lot of strong female role models. I like to tell people that I was raised in a matriarchy (My grandpa is such a lovely man, but my grandma hands down runs the show). Thinking back now, I look at all the books my older female cousins would give me like Dealing with Dragons, The Ordinary Princess, Ella Enchanted, and even shows we’d watch together like Sailor Moon. All these books/shows had princesses as protagonists but they were always so capable, self-sustaining and ultimately the heroes of their own stories. And it’s not like they renounced being princesses or put down their male-counterparts, they were simply strong, independent females who were equal partners to their princes. I’d like to mention that I’ve had wonderful male role models in my life too; seeing the love, care and respect with which my dad has treated my mom, my sister and me equally feeds into the self-worth I feel as a woman. Anyways, the point I’m trying to make is that you could say feminism has subconsciously been instilled into me from very early on in my life.

I think this is why in high school when I found my passion for working with marginalized communities, I had an especially tender heart for women’s issues. From working with women in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver with the Agape Ministry, to organizing menstrual product drives for the DTES Women’s Centre, and currently working on projects for the Justice For Girls program, I love it all!  As a current medical student, I hope that I can have an even greater impact on women’s issues by taking part in women’s health initiatives and advocating for my future patients as a physician. 

To all my “girly” ladies out there, never forget that you can simultaneously be the princess and the hero of your own story!

Ideally, in 10 years I will have a career that I am passionate about, working towards making a difference within the community I live in. Also maybe with a hot hubby and cute baby! 

What is a perceived flaw you have, how are you growing?

I think that I am sometimes too harsh on myself and my head can go overthinking in all sorts of different directions! I am trying to breathe deeper, do more yoga, make time for things I love, and ultimately - be more thankful for the present! 

What’s something you find miraculous about life?

That everyone is living completely different, beautiful lives. So many different adventures, passions, stories that are being created every day.
