Says our cover girl, Candice Melwicks with a radiant smile as she explains that she is now unconditionally enthusiastic about life!
However, that was not always the case. Candice left her home town in Saskatchewan after miserable high school years during which she was bullied and made to feel like an outcast mostly because she is very tall and maybe because of her ethnicity, Candice is a mix of Metis and German. Contrarily, that height and a beautiful face helped her secure modeling work in Edmonton where she began her determined road to set goals with timelines to succeed personally and professionally.
Candice is very involved with The CMolik Foundation that provides opportunities for BC youth who have experienced adversity in their lives. Rooted in a profound belief in the power of education to transform lives, the group supports undergraduate and post secondary training, field trips, summer camps and mentorship to help the development of young people.
Candice is also the Chapter Manager of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a global network that helps business leaders grow and learn through direct peer-to-peer experiences. The local Chapter (with thirty members) meets monthly for confidential sharing sessions and has an annual retreat. Members travel world-wide to conferences, for example across Canada and Asia.
