ELLE (Canada) - - Anniversary -

“I have big, far-fetched as­pi­ra­tions,” ad­mits Emily Brade, a his­tory stu­dent at the Univer­sity of Toronto. “I’d love to go to Ox­ford.” The self­pro­claimed Type A per­son­al­ity has mas­tered the art of check­ing things off her to-do list: She has il­lus­trated a book of po­ems, worked in copy­writ­ing at an ad agency and just re­vamped her en­tire wardrobe, toss­ing ev­ery­thing she didn’t love. Modelling is an­other goal of hers. You might say it runs in the fam­ily: Her mom used to be a model. The hand­ful of gigs Emily has had gave her the con­fi­dence to be her­self: “It made me ac­cept crit­i­cism with­out tak­ing it too per­son­ally,” she says. “At the end of the day, I had to ac­cept that I am who I am and be happy about it.”
