In 11th grade, I was fortunate to have been able to participate in the "I Can Fly" program. Having been very interested in the aviation industry since I was a little girl, this was the perfect opportunity to explore various aviation departments necessary for daily operations. My most memorable moment from this experience was visiting the ATC tower, also known as the air traffic control tower. This program was an eye-opening experience, and I have learned so much.
Taking care of yourself is crucial, especially during the global pandemic when so much stress and uncertainties are happening in our lives. Therefore, rediscovering mother nature and taking the time away from the world of social media to recharge yourself is essential. This summer, I am so thankful to have explored my beautiful home, British Columbia.
Throwback to the very first time I went kayaking. I was terrified while in the kayak because the waves were quite powerful that day. I was also underprepared when I went kayaking and did not dress appropriately. So, to those who plan on going kayaking for the first time, make sure to wear swimwear because you will get drenched. It was an excellent experience, and I am so glad that I decided to give it a try.
Other than Chinese Dance, I've also taken ballet classes for numerous years. Over the years, I went from taking recreational ballet classes to a half-day professional training program. Ballet has provided me with a strong solid foundation in dance that enables me to learn various dance genres quickly.
I've started Chinese Dance at a very young age. Dance brought so much happiness in my life; it has also taught me many valuable lessons that I will forever remember. Dance taught me to have a strong mindset, discipline, dedication, persistence, perseverance, passion, and many more. In many ways, dance has shaped me into the strong independent woman I am today.
My love for art has started at a very young age. When travelling around the world, you would often find me visiting different museums and exhibitions where I can be surrounded by various art pieces and appreciate other cultures and their history.

In 2015, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and participated in Sunshine Nation. It was an incredible experience, and I have learned so much throughout the two months of training. I've met such talented girls, which gave me the determination to continuously better myself and be the best version that I can be. The sunshine nation platform has provided me with a bigger stage to reach more people and, at the same time, bring joy to numerous lives. I am forever grateful to the Fairchild radio crew, stage production team, makeup artists, sponsors, dance teachers, family, friends, and many more.

Hello everyone! I'm #8, Carmen Cheung. I am so incredibly blessed and grateful to share my little story here on the MCVP platform. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, and ever since I was a little girl, I could not stop bouncing around. So at the age of 2.5, I started taking Chinese Dance classes. I fell utterly in love with the movement of dance on my very first day. To this day, I still remember my very first dance class quite vividly. Thank you, mom and dad, for allowing me to find my passion in dance and performance. 大家好！我是8號，張嘉文。我非常幸運和感激能在MCVP的平台上分享我的小小的故事。我在溫哥華出生，長大，從我小的時候，我就不停的蹦蹦跳跳！所以在兩歲半的時候，我開始上中國舞蹈的課。 我第一天就完全愛上了舞蹈。直到今天，我仍然清楚的記得我第一次上舞蹈課。很感謝我的爸爸媽媽讓我找到了對舞蹈和表演的熱情！
