We are THRILLED to have Silvana (@Silvana_Est) as our #WomanWarrior! Silvana is highlighting her incredible mother today 💕 We are so inspired by this story, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for these amazing ladies ❤️
“Hi my name is Silvana, I’m 19 years old and I’m the oldest of 3! I grow up in a small town called dechemare, Eritrea. My mom left Eritrea to try and give us a better way of life. My mom traveled to Egypt, were she worked as a house cleaner and babysitter for more than 2 years and every penny she made sent us. After that she moved to Calgary, Canada, worked odd jobs in the day, went to night classes to learn English and landed a job as a nurse, after living in Calgary for 5 years the government approved her request to bring us here.
Because of my mom I got to pursue the one thing I have always wanted to do, ACTING! So after living in Calgary for 6 years I moved to Vancouver when I was 18 and already finished a year and half intensive acting program at SC.
There’s isn’t a day where I don’t wake up and be so so grateful for my mom. my MAMA is my most amazing, beautiful warrior with a heart of gold.”
