Get to know us! We’re reintroducing ourselves – from our contributors to our co-founder and CEO!
Name: Madison Sekulin
Job Title: Actress
Hometown: Toronto, Ontario
School: Graduate from the Randolph College for Performing Arts
Favourite Snack: My favourite snack is, without a doubt, apple with natural peanut butter. Specifically the crunchy kind. I recently found out that this snack does not work out well in our stomach and doesn’t follow food combining at all, so it usually makes you bloated but I find it worth it!
Weirdest thing you’ve ever done on public transit: Being an actress means attending many auditions between serving shifts, classes, and other life activities. I don’t always have time to be at home and prepare for an audition how I would like to. Sometimes I am literally running from work onto a bus to make an audition on time. When this happens I tend to be humming, singing vowels and doing other various vocal exercises on the train or bus to prepare. I’m usually trying to be quiet and am very aware of those around me but in the end I’d rather be warmed up and ready to go!
How are you embracing the real you?: To embrace the real me I think there are tons of things I’ve started to do consciously. I’ve been reflecting in my mind and on paper a lot more than ever before and taking note of what makes me happy and what does not. This seems super simple but sometimes it’s very easy to forget about these types of things and to forget to prioritize yourself. Expressing myself with no shame or hesitation is another fantastic way to feel grounded and comfortable in your skin. I really love to dress up and wear whatever I feel like, it’s probably my favourite way to express myself and I use it as a definite creative outlet.
