Grace Beedie (She/Her)
GET TO KNOW GRACE:
When you’re not modelling, what else are you up to?
My yoga and pilates practices nourish me physically and spiritually. I’m often reading scripts or books about creativity and self-development. I love to walk in whatever city I’m in, take photos along the way, and discover the best coffee shops. In my free time, I paint the photos I take with watercolours.
What is your favourite Quote? Or lyric?
“We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the centre hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but non-being is what we use.” - Lao Tzu
What is your biggest motivation?
To be a beneficial presence in the world through living an authentic, truthful life and expressing the highest potential of my creativity. I feel motivated knowing that embodying the essence of who I am with confidence empowers others to do the same.
How many languages do you speak?
I love meeting new people, and I appreciate the ways languages create more opportunities for connections. My first language is English, and I learned to speak French from elementary school through to university. I’ve continued to maintain my French with online learning programs. In high school, I took Mandarin for four years, and recently I’ve started learning Ukrainian to feel a sense of connection to my ancestry.
