Hey everyone! Today we introduce Feature Fridays!
Each week, we are going to be featuring one awesome member of our community. We believe in supporting those around us and doing what we can to help them achieve their goals. We want to share with you the amazing things these guys and gals are up to, along with the confusing parts of their lives. We are all a little amazed and confused in life and we truly believe we can learn from one another; so, we are here to help share everyone’s unique story. If you ever want to be featured, just hit us up on the contact page and you will get your own Feature Friday!
For our first feature, we thought we’d do a more formal intro to US! We are the ladies behind Amazed and Confused.
Who are you? Hey there, I am Kyra or @kyraalauren! I live a busy life and I love it. Full-time, I work as a Business Development Manager at a corporate wellness and engagement startup (Ikkuma Inc)🔥. Part-time, I work for Bumble 🐝,I dance with a wonderful company called Find Your Fierce 💃, and work with my bestie on A&C! Outside of work I love hanging with friends, family, and my lovely bf, attending events, drinking tea, hitting up the gym, and snuggling my pups.I am so excited to meet every single one of you.
What is your biggest passion? My biggest passion is to help people live their healthiest and happiest life. I am passionate about bringing people together. I want to help as many people as I can.
What is amazing in your life right now? I am so excited to be looking for a condo Downtown Toronto. The urge to live downtown has been so strong for so long now and I am PUMPED to be making the move.
What is confusing in your life right now? When will I become ‘established’? I know if I keep working towards my goals it will ‘fall in my lap’ but I am a planner. Some people know where their job role will take them and what’s the next step for them but I just don’t and I would love to have some sort of an idea.
What am I excited about for 2019? Moving out hehe.
What do I love about A&C? I love that we get to share our A&C members’ individual stories. I love that we get to connect people who may be going through a confusing time and might be able to find someone who is in a similar situation as them, who can help them through it. The same thing goes for amazed stories. You might find your next mentor, your new best friend, or a pen pal in here. I love the community we are creating.
Who are you? Hey, I’m Sara or @saraabucks! By day, I work 9-5 as a Customer Success Manager for the Oracle Marketing Cloud. By night, I am Bumble Canada’s Toronto Market Lead, bringing fun events to Toronto with my crew of City Reps. I am the founder of BarreMoves, an upbeat dance and pilates inspired fitness class, and of course, one of the co-founders of Amazed and Confused.
What is your biggest passion? I’ve been a dancer my whole life and I am passionate about teaching dance, and sharing my love for fitness! Where I hope to make my mark in the world: health and wellness, & women empowerment/equality. <3
What is amazing in your life right now? 2018 was a year of exploration for me. I’ve recently launched my own fitness classes called Barremoves, which has been a goal of mine for a long time! I am also absolutely loving being Bumble Toronto’s Market lead. I love connecting and bringing people together!
What is confusing in your life right now? My 9-5 job. I’m currently in my 3rd job since university and I’ve yet to find a good fit for me. I was liking this one, until a massive organizational shift happened, affecting my job role. I’ve always loved to do multiple things, and i’m loving my side hustles more than my 9-5 at the moment, so it’s confusing to say the least. Do I try to start my own business? Do I keep job searching? What’s next for me?
What am I excited about for 2019? I’ve just signed up for a 3 month health coaching program. I’m excited to finally meet some of my health and fitness goals!
What do I love about A&C? As I mentioned I love to bring people together. I think building this community will allow people to connect and realize they are not alone in this confusing thing we call life! I know so many of you have big dreams, and I think it’s important to build a community who’s got your back as you go for it!
Stay tuned every Friday to see who will be featured next! Want to share you story? Let’s us know here!
