She is also Community Lead for Tunezy, a social eCommerce platform for emerging artists, which recently picked up top prize at Billboard.

If you can’t tell already, Gloria is always on the go. Whether she’s flying to New York, or writing for MTV Canada, she’s always picture-perfect ready in her classy, yet bright and modern outfits. This, partnered with her never-ending experiments with jewelry, explains why she was selected as the official blogger for World Mastercard Fashion Week this past year.
