Are you really in control? Who are you getting your information from and who are they getting their information from? Everything on earth is controlled. Our food is being controlled with GMOs and convenience, our health is being controlled by HELLth 'care' systems where most people are living their lives taking prescription medication for the rest of their lives. Absolutely disgusting but the 'norm' for most. Our transportation is even being cont...

My mother didn't take advantage of critical illness or disability insurance and she ended up being diagnosed with nasal-pharynx cancer and losing her job. I am her only child and of course took care of her rent and bills and medical bills even to this day. If you think that a critical illness would never happen to you then please see my friend Dale Metzak's message below and any assistance to help him out with his medical bills would be greatly appreciated. Please share and let's help Dale lift a weight off his shoulders so he can recover without being stressed out about his finances. Message me for CI insurance or any kind of insurance.

"Since the early age of 18 I've unknowingly been getting sicker and sicker... Finally at the age of 42 I was diagnosed with a very rare form of Hodgkin lymphoma. I fought that with chemo and alternative methods for 2 years finally putting myself into remission in February of 2014. Life has never been the same... Debts have piled up and medications are extremely costly! Forced out of my old place and into a new place I'm unable to properly feed myself and my car has broken down needing a new timing chain. I crumbled.. Falling into a deep depressive state I landed in hospital seeking professional medical help... and here I am.. Asking for your generosity and your help and compassion to help me get back on my feet once again... 

I appreciate your kindness, your help, and your generosity as I know money is not easily earned in these times..."

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. This is my official video submission to become Calgary’s East Village Resident Ambassador. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89zlb2jr9BI PLEASE LIKE the VIDEO if you do heart emoticon

Born and raised in Calgary, I was living the life of a Vancouverite in the heart of downtown Vancouver when I moved there in 2010 for 4 years. I was running my own social media agency and working for Miss World Canada and created a strong network of friends and new family. I came back to my home town, for new opportunities with my diverse background, as you may have seen on LinkedIn, and adding more t the mix by becoming a business coach, obtaining my life insurance licence to sell, facilitating social media 101 for SMEs, hosting networking events and personal development workshops again and really reconnecting and building a strong community personally and professionally all in the last nearly 2 years since I've been back.

I have been back and forth to Vancouver since and you can ask my friends, I still wasn’t sure if I was going to really settle back down in Calgary or go back to Vancouver. Why? I missed the water, the colourful communities, urban village living, the convenience of walking everywhere, the floor to ceiling window condos, Urban Fare (my favourite grocery store), the arts and entertainment, the diverse restaurants, the cool food trucks lined up downtown at lunch every day and that is just to name a few. So as I continued and prayed for some kind of change that Calgary would make to me want to stay, this incredible opportunity knocked on my door and this is my official application to be the voice of a community that is much needed in Calgary and that it is finally ready for. Check it out here: http://www.evexperience.com/evliving

My legacy of my online social media footprint is what makes me perfect to be the voice and face of East Village. My practice is love and non-judgement and I see everyone as an equal and I engage with everyone because I love hearing everyone’s stories and know that we have so much to learn from each other. Personally, I have already been living the requirements that CMLC (job description: http://tinyurl.com/ov3o9nc) is looking for in their Ambassador and because I have an organic following of people because of the networking and socializing I have done over the years this what I do naturally. Please connect with me on the links below and I thank you for this amazing opportunity to be the voice, face and light of this fabulous downtown community bringing in and connecting the surrounding communities in unity. Create an amazing day and I wish everyone that has applied the best of luck! Please subscribe here and let's connect below:

My friend has 4 tickets for the Sturgill Simpson concert happening in Seattle this week but unfortunately I am not able to make it. I am selling all 4 tickets for $300. Please email AlbertaWade@hotmail.com for e-tickets.

Wed, November 26, 2014 8:00 PM (Doors open at: 7:00 PM)
Sturgill Simpson
Special Guest: Lucette
Tractor Tavern 5213 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 (206-789-3599)

"Simpson moved with alacrity from the boom-chick propulsion of “Some Days” to the tear-up of “Life of Sin” (introduced with a hilarious, show he recently played the song) and the mordant wit of “You Can Have the Crown.” He veered from the hard-core honky-tonk of Lefty Frizzell’s “I Never Go Around Mirrors” to the blistering, electric bluegrass of “A Little Light Within,” from plain-hewn acoustic splashes to electric space jams."

~ Stuart Munro, Boston Globe

Work
Occupation
As a child I was into many things, as an adult, I still am! I have started a ladies luncheon, workshop and social where like-minded women collaborate in a safe and non-judgemental place. The next lunceon is Dec. 7th in Calgary. I love photography and taking pictures of everything and anything that captures my eyes (@livelovendate on Instagram). I am creative; painting abstract let’s me get all the colors that vibrate my feelings inward outward. I've also started my own jewellery line in hopes that all the proceeds will one day get me to Africa as it has been my dream to climb Mount Kilamanjaro and help build a school. I find solace in writing and I have resumed writing my book as it has been put on hold from last year when I got back from Thailand after training Muay Thai. I love to give to the less fortunate and started a charity drive last year called Operation: Earth Angels 11:11
