In 2015, Natalie De Gasperis had the honor of being chosen Miss Youth Bocce. Youth Bocce Canada gives individuals with physical and developmental challenges the opportunity to overcome barriers.
Since 2015, she has participated on the St. Peter’s Dominican Republic Relief Mission trip, which allows the group to give back to the less fortunate living in the Dominican.
Natalie has wanted to help those in need and describes the mission trips as one of the most rewarding successes in her life. This is why she has decided to dance for Easter Seals 2020, so she can provide support for children and youth with physical disabilities.
Natalie has two younger brothers and two amazing parents, who guided and supported her for the past 23 years. In 2018, Natalie’s father, Romeo De Gasperis, passed away after a long battle with cancer; he was her best friend.
In 2019, Natalie graduated with honours from Seneca College with a degree in Business Management and now applies her skills to her full-time job at Condo Properties.
She has always had a passion for dance and she cannot wait to dust off her dancing shoes for a good cause!
