Megan te Boekhorst, Toronto

Hi. I'm Megan.

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. Never one to take the traditional route, I've lived life on my own terms since 1991. Currently working in Public Relations while rocking the side hustle lifestyle that brings me unstoppable passion. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being a bad ass, vulnerable bitch. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Be unapologetically true to yourself. Live #thesequoialife.

Twenty-five has been the year of doing things that scare me. It was semi-unintentional, but since my birthday I've been pushing myself to go further and further out of my comfort zone. And that included nude modelling for live-drawing at an event. 

I am lucky to know the amazing Tori Swanson, a talented and brave artist. Last Saturday she put the call out looking for a female model to bare it all for a semi-private event and I found myself volunteering immediately. Before I truly processed what it all meant, true, but I was excited. I'm thrilled that I went through with it. 

The event was hosted by lululemon athletica Oakridge in honour of lululemon's focus on appreciation this month. Thus, #AppreciationNation was born. Tori's part looked at appreciation of self, and it gave me great insight into appreciating the body I have. 

That night I dropped a blanket and was fortunate enough to be sketched several times by Tori, then even by some event attendees tried their hand at it! Check out the two sketches I brought home with me - I can't wait to get them framed!
