High Diamond Makes High Impact
Message of Being True to Yourself Has Impact on Oakville Girls at Pretty in Pink Spa Event
Oakville, ON – December 4, 2013: Local celebrities, Catina and Angela Duscio, known as High Diamond, brought a positive message of confidence, inspiration and perseverance to girls in Oakville on Saturday, inspiring them to shine bright every day.
“Bullying and low self-esteem is so predominant with young girls today and it is a conversation that needs to take place on an ongoing basis in a safe and open environment,” says Imerti. “When I first learned of High Diamond’s struggles with bullying as they worked to make their dreams come true, I knew it was a message that would resonate with so many. Catina and Angela really engaged the girls in discussions about bullying and staying true to their dreams and you could see that it had an impact.”
Throughout the evening, attendees were treated to three songs – Broken, DreamGirl and Dance It Away, a song about bullying – and were encouraged to share their own stories of how bullying has impacted their lives and how they are looking for ways to live their dreams despite the negative comments and influences.
“High Diamond was awesome! I thought it was cool that they shared their stories about being bullied when they were young,” says Josée, Age 9. “To hear that they were bullied and now are living their dreams made me feel hopeful. I want to do what they are doing when I grow up.”
Josée’s mom, Kelly, was thrilled with the event. “My daughter has wanted to be a singer for years, so I knew she’d love meeting High Diamond. But when the first words out of her mouth were about the girls’ struggles with bullying and how they listened to her stories, I knew that the event would have a lasting impression on my daughter.”
It seems like the girls from Oakville inspired High Diamond as well. Their new twitter hashtag – #imallergictogossip – was inspired by one of the girls Keira, age 9, who shared that when friends try to share gossip, she just says, “I’m allergic to gossip.”
