In the past weeks, we’ve had the pleasure to get to know Hayley as a devoted researcher, explorer and strong financial communicator. But when she filled out our traditional “Get to know you” questionnaire, we discovered Hayley has a passion for exploring the great outdoors and is a sparkling water enthusiast with serious influencer potential(!).
What do you love the most about PR?
I’m quite a “Curious George”, so I would say the aspect I love the most about PR is that it allows you to learn about different industries, products and people. In the same light, you gain valuable insight into the market trends.
What has been your proudest career moment to date?
So far, the proudest moment of my career was during my first internship at Teranga Gold where I spearheaded and accomplished the design of the corporate website. I was proud of myself because it was the first major project of my professional career and it ended up being a great success.
What might people be surprised to learn about you?
I lived in Denmark for five months! In my third year of university, I spent my winter semester studying abroad at Aarhus University. I fell in love with the Scandinavian lifestyle ‘hygge’ and its principles of simplicity and coziness. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I would go back in a second.
Who inspires you?
As cliché as this might sound, my family and closest friends are the people that inspire me the most. Watching all of them navigate and overcome so many challenges in life with such resiliency has been such an inspiration for me and a constant reminder to keep going, no matter what. I also admire how lighthearted my friends and family are and how they never take themselves too seriously.
What are three things you cannot live without?
- Toothbrush – I cannot stand the feeling of unbrushed teeth
- Music – Could you imagine dancing in silence?
- PC’s blue menu sparkling water – I have a slight addiction to it…. I even made an Instagram account in hopes that one day PC will sponsor me (@mybabyisbluee)
Hey #PC – are you listening?
What do you love the most about Toronto?
Since I love to explore, the thing I love the most about Toronto is how walkable it is. With all the different neighbourhoods in Toronto, I feel as though you could walk in different directions and discover something new every day.
Where would your dream trip take you?
I have an extensive travel list, but as of right now, my dream trip would take me to the Swiss Alps. I love traveling to places with captivating sceneries and where I can do a lot of outdoor activities that get my adrenaline pumping. The Swiss Alps also happens to be the location of two of my bucket list items – paragliding and the Haute Route hike.
