Carina is a fun-loving, Italian teen who enjoys singing, dancing and acting and would like to pursue a career in entertainment. Carina leaves a lasting impression on those that meet her. To her teachers, she is known to be a “dedicated student”, as she graduated elementary school with honours and the “spirit” award. To her friends and family, she is a born leader.

Carina’s father and brother, both musicians, introduced her to music at an early age and she has been training vocally in pop, classical, and musical theatre ever since. She also enjoys accompanying herself with guitar, piano or ukulele. Since the age of two, she has been a full-time dancer in many genres. Carina has also enjoyed main roles in musicals like “Mary Poppins” and “The Lion King”. She is currently enrolled in the Arts Unionville Dance program at school, and is a member of the K&K Dance Dreamz Full-Time Competition Team. When not competing Carina choreographs dances for shows at school, or for GirlPow-R songs! Overall, Carina has much experience in song & dance, and was offered a scholarship from the York Region Celebration of the Arts.

Carina is extremely happy to be a part of GirlPow-R! She says, “I love the idea of being in an all-girl pop/rock group whose sole purpose is to spread a positive message and encourage young girls around the world.” For Carina, GirlPow-R is the best of both worlds. It allows her to help others AND do what she loves.

The group provides a space where she can be herself and promote causes that she is passionate about. A movement close to her heart, started by John Lennon, is “Give Peace A Chance” The destruction of war is seen globally and can’t be measured in casualties or currency. She believes promoting anti-war, and harmony is a sure way to stand united. Carina wants true world peace, however, until then, she is content in being “a part of the movement to help girls achieve their full potential!”
