Hello to you, reader,
I am 21 years old; I come from the countryside. Small 5p3 ', but big of the astrological sign, bull. I have several tattoos that describe some course of my life. A map of the world that represents travel, adventure and discovery. Crosses are representing my Catholic religion. A wing that defines freedom. A text on my right thigh, which reminds me of my values after my car accident. This tattoo says: Work hard but do not let work take over your life, you will lose yourself. It's never too late. Do not compare yourself to others, that's just deadly. No two souls are the same. You are your person, you are beautiful, and you are unique. Some things are just meant to happen, and some not.
Why do I explain my tattoos, and give you a little description? Because your arrival reminds me that nothing happens for nothing. My talent for fashion, the admiration for photography and the ambition that I have when I start in things that are close to my heart, have brought me here. As my mom often repeats, continue your beautiful work, life will bring you something beautiful. Well, life brought me to you.
In 2017, I worked for the company La Senza, located in Downtown Montreal. After my departure, I traveled to 4 different countries: Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and Colombia. I grew up a lot from this experience. I had a lot to see, again today and tomorrow too. I am currently in the family company, a company called Tristan Foods. I help production with my father, me and my mother take care of the Instagram, and my brother recently offered me the composition of text, on the website, of all our food products.
I recently started sewing classes. I always bought my clothes in the shop, but for no reason, when I arrived home, I touched the piece. For example I cut the collar, cut the pants for shorts, etc. So, I decided to start drawing sketches, then make my own models.

Marie-Clara ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Blogger, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
Take my time
make sure to respond all their needs
there is a quote that says: You have to know how to take your time if you do not want to lose it again.
Please tell us Marie-Clara, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Blogger?
My mother was working in a daycare service and then she was babysitting a girl. She was a little older than me. Today she is a blogger and makes several videos. She inspires me a lot. Very pretty and natural.
One day I was looking for a lot of stylist on Instagram and I found a woman of my age who resentment took out her own swimsuits. Young and talented, full of ambition and courage.
Marie-Clara, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
when I started at La Senza
I had never been in the sales business
and then to my first day
I was asked to be on sale commission
I was really congratulated because I had no sales experience
Marie-Clara, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Blogger. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
I had never sewed, and I was so proud of my first curtain sewing.
I brought it with me wherever I went for weeks.
Marie-Clara, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
like this morning, I woke up at 3 in the morning unable to go back to bed I got up, and I came to the company office to fulfil your request
I am an ambitious person when the time is right I do not waste my time
I go without even thinking
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Blogger?
believe in yourself no two souls are the same
it takes one person to change things
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I do not have any collaboration especially because life will bring in my way the needs that I will need I accept help and learn from everyone
I can bring to people like people can bring me a lot of things
not objects but learning
