Andrea Stefancikova – The Essence of a Woman Growing Strong

At 34 years old I have been told that I am too old – I need to be smaller – my hair should be better. It is only now in my thirties that I feel myself coming alive as a woman. I feel really sorry for the young girls starting out in these situations. Though things are improving with more people recognizing a healthier lifestyle we are still so far from being there.

ANDREA STEFANCIKOVA

A refreshing chat with Slovakian born actress/model Andrea Stefancikova

Currently living in Vancouver – well traveled with experiences of life – she has some exciting projects and a new book coming next year.
So nice to share a bond as women finding their way – and to hear Andrea’s honesty about the realities of the being a woman in this business, and how it feels to be pressured to be a ‘cookie cutter’ girl to remain relevant in an industry that would rather eat you alive than see you thrive.
Find out what she would like men to really know about her.
So much more to this girl behind the image and we look forward to sharing our journey of ‘Selfless’ with her.

Cariboo Express – Making Music Count Across Western Canada

Who couldn’t find something to live for with Barney Bentall & the Legendary Hearts.

Music – such a powerful expression from above, and there is nothing more fulfilling than to watch it grow and infiltrate into the hearts and lives of those who need it most.

So nice to catch up with Barney this week to chat about Cariboo Express –  a talented ensemble that has been touring each November for more than a decade to make a difference with their gift of music.

a-cariboo-express

This is a one-of-a-kind variety show cast with renowned Canadian musicians, led by Canadian superstar Barney Bentall, along with Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Kendel Carson, Matt Masters, Wendy Bird, various special guests and a backing band comprised of some of Canada’s finest musicians. Each of the core members have music careers of their own, but every November the group convenes to raise funds for various worthy charities in the spirit of song, community and giving back to society.

Cariboo Express has raised $850,000 to date, which is true testament to their vision of lending a hand where it may be needed most – and they are so very far from finished.

Fresh Independence is excited to take part in their Vancouver show Saturday November 26th at the Vogue Theatre on Granville Street.

Hope to see you there!

Craig Roh – More Than A Football Player

When you hear the name Craig ‘Death’ Roh different visions come to mind. I had the privilege to catch up with this man who is more than a triple threat on the field – he is a player of integrity, faith and belief that all things are possible when you take the high road.

Have a listen and learn more about #93 and this man behind the football player – Craig Roh.

“Well, Roh is my last name, and I realized one day that ‘Death Roh’ would be a cool nickame, I realized this in senior year of high school. I had an interview right after that for a Michigan website and I told them that my nickname was ‘Death Roh’, and it stuck ever since. I’m definitely not a ‘death row’ type personality, but the nickname is cool. You gotta have a different persona on the field – you can’t always be who you are in civilian life. On the field, you gotta be violent, you gotta be aggressive. Off the field, you have to be loving, charismatic, and gentle.
My journey with the Lions is awesome. It’s truly a blessing,I came out here just wanting to keep playing football. Vancouver has been an awesome city,the BC Lions organization has been so fun to get to know, my teammates are awesome, the D-line is awesome, and I’m really happy up here.”
