Letter From the Editor

It'll be Okay

Celebrate Nicole's journey

into adulthood as she turns

18. She and her sisters are the

reason I live. A father's love

for his children is equaled by

nothing else.

Things have been a bit of a roller coaster ride in my

life since last year and even though the worst is not

yet over, things have stabilized for now. My family

has a history of heart disease and my problems

are manifesting as the years pass on. I have a few

serious conditions, but time will tell how it plays

out—for now, the medication seems to be doing the

trick. My big brother has recovered from open-heart

surgery and is doing fantastically! I just finished

watching him and his bride on a Zoom call. They

live-streamed their wedding for family and friends

that couldn't be there with them on their special

day. I am so happy for him and hope and pray that

his days will remain long and peaceful.

Why am I sharing this with all you beautiful

people? Just to say this, live each day to its fullest

and love the people you are with. You never know,

tomorrow might not come.

I had quite a bit of time off from work as I was

recovering and was able to dedicate it to building

this issue of Topteen. I hope the effort shows and

you will enjoy the results. This is the biggest issue to

date and in my opinion, the most elegant one.

I am so proud to share with you my eldest

daughter's debut. She turned 18 and I can hardly

believe it! I want to give a huge thanks and

appreciation to Faymas Productions — Arnie and

Felix, the photographer and videographer for the

event. It's hard for me to give up the camera and

trust others to do the job, but these guys were

superb. Thank you!

Ok, let's address the elephant in the room. Am I

wearing a Topteen shirt? Yes, I am. I have to say, it's

extremely stretchy! Don't worry, I won't send any

that I have tried on, lol.

I love what this publication has become and the

messages of love and support from the parents

and creatives involved, mean so much to me. I hope

this issue reaches even further and helps shape the

future of the magazine and shapes and inspires the

lives of everyone who has been a part of it.

Enjoy the issue, and as always, I love to hear

from you. Feel free to drop me a note about your

thoughts on the publication. I'm always available for

a good conversation.

As big as it may be of a milestone, turning

eighteen didn’t change too much for me--

other than the fact that I can now register a

library card all by myself now!

Although not much has changed, I’m still

thankful enough to have the opportunity

to share my special day with my family and

friends. It’s a new chapter in my life that’s

begun, adulthood! With that comes many

responsibilities and new challenges that I’ve

yet to face on this journey called life. Am

I worried, or uncertain of what the future

holds? Of course! University is right around

the corner for me, and I’d be lying to say that

I’m not nervous, but I’m ready to take on

whatever life throws at me.

We all have times of uncertainty in our lives,

but it’s important to step out of our comfort

zone in order to mature as an individual. Don’t

dwell on the “what if’s” in life and take matters

into your own hands so that in the future you

can look back without regrets!

TOPTEEN presents a special interview with Haley Huelsman

TOPTEEN |

Hi Haley! It's a pleasure to speak with you and thank you for lending your thoughts

and advice with us.

| HALEY

Thank you! It's great to share with you here.

TOPTEEN |

You have reached some amazing heights in your dance career. How old were you

when you first sarted?

| HALEY

I began dance training at 18 months old; started competition at the

age of 5 and continued through high school.

TOPTEEN |

You had just learned to walk and then started dancing?

| HALEY

Pretty much! It came naturally to me and I was involved in

extensive training. It's something I have loved and continue to

love. Throughout my school years I held many titles and won many

awards - leading to scholarships.

TOPTEEN |

Your talent and passion opened many opportunities for you. What are some of your

fondest memories?

| HALEY

When I was 11, I was chosen to appear on Abby's Ultimate Dance

Competition in LA. There I was able to film for six episodes. It was a great

experience and let me work with some great choreographers and judges.

Once we finished that, I was given a chance to audition for Dance Moms

and was chosen to be a part of "Candy Apples" I've also had the chance

to do extensive commercial and print work.

TOPTEEN |

That is the dream of every dancer that wants to dance competively, to have the

chance to work with the top names in the business.

| HALEY

Yes, most definitely! The other part that goes hand in hand with

that experience is meeting and creating lifelong friendships with the

other girls I had danced with. We all came from all different walks of

life, but had the same love for dance.

TOPTEEN |

That leads us to today. What are you currently doing?

| HALEY

To pursue my love for dance, I moved to New York and am

attending The Institute For American Musical Theatre. I am training

five days a week in dance, singing and acting. This includes ballet,

tap, musical theatre, commercial jazz , hip hop, contemporary,

jazz, acting technique, masterclasses, performance opportunities,

networking and more!

TOPTEEN |

Wow! That is quite the schedule.

| HALEY

It is! But I love it so much and am so happy with where I am now. It's

all been worth it and I look forward to more opportunities.

TOPTEEN |

What's next for you?

| HALEY

My plan is to pursue Broadway.

TOPTEEN |

With everything you have accomplished so far, I know you will have nothing but

success. Before we go, would you mind sharing some advice for aspiring teens looking

to pursue their dance and modelling careers?

| HALEY

I started going to the gym and pushing myself to what I know I am

capable of no matter how hard it was. On mornings I didn’t want to

get up I pushed myself, I read quotes everyday, meditate, I started

to manifest and started to read when I would feel stressed. Finding

different ways to cope and deal with your emotions when things get

hard are so important.

M

y love for music started very early when I would hum

little tunes before I could even talk. As I have gotten

older, this passion never died. I started attending

singing lessons to enhance my talent, and through this I got

many performance opportunities.

My first performances were always really scary but as I got

more and more performance experience, my confidence rose.

In recent years I started to accompany myself with instruments

such as the piano and guitar which I find much more fun than

singing with a backing track.

My musical ability and passion doesn’t just stop there, I also

love expressing my emotions and thoughts through music and

have written my own original music. Due to Covid, many of my

performances, gigs and competitions were cancelled which left

me really upset but this also opened many online singing and

songwriting competitions which I entered and also ended up

wining.

In 2021 I started busking at Markets and found my love for

busking. I now busk every week at a variety of markets as well

as gig at venues to spread my love for music to the community

while making some money.

As well as music, modelling has recently become a big

part of my life. This all started when I entered The Photo

Studio Australia’s model search where the winner was

offered a free professional portfolio shoot valued at

$5000. I was beyond excited when I received the call

to tell me I had actually won this amazing opportunity.

I really enjoyed choosing and styling my outfits during

the weeks before the shoot and I was dying to get into

the studio. On the day of the shoot I was very nervous

but once it had started, modelling felt so natural to me

and I had so much fun. After this shoot experience I

knew I wanted to continue my passion for modelling. I

started posting the photos from the shoot and finding

every modelling opportunity I could.

One of these opportunities was the Country Girl

Management event which I was selected to participate

in. During this event I was taught valuable lessons

about the modelling industry and how to be my most

confident self. Soon enough I was doing many shoots

with local photographers and even making some

income from it.

I am beyond thankful for the opportunity that I

received from the Photo Studio Australia because they

helped me find my love for modelling as well as helped

me get to where I am now.

It 'll be okay...

a sad break-up tale – by mr. g

Canadian singer/songwriter, Shawn Mendes

and Cuban-born popstar, Camila Cabello were a

power couple, collaborating on songs with their

latest, "Señorita" debuting at number two on the

US Billboard Hot 100 charts and taking the number

one spot shortly after. The Netflix special, Shawn

Mendes: In Wonder, showcased the closeness the

two shared and the story of how their relationship

moved from friendship to love.

In a tender moment, Shawn reflects on how he

confided in Camila about how every song is about

her. He then continues. "I don't think I'll ever be

able to write songs that do it justice. That can really

capture the things and the feelings with her."

In a twist, it seems the most truthful songwriting

that brought fans to tears with the honest and raw

pain Shawn was feeling, was about Camila.

While the news of Shawn Mendes and Camila

Cabello might be not so new, they did announce

the ending of the two-year romance back in

November 2021. They cited the break-up to be a

mutual decision and would remain friends.

Sources say, "They realized they are in totally

different places in their lives at this point, and it

was time to end things."

There seem to be no hard feelings between

them, but it seems like Shawn is processing the

heartache in his most honest way – through song.

"Music is a platform to get to a place inside myself,"

he shared in an Instagram post.

'It'll be Okay' was released two weeks after

their break-up was announced and the official

video came out in January 2022. The lyrics have

sent numerous fans on the sad road Shawn was

traversing. His brokenness was unmistakable in

each verse. Tears were shed, but as Shawn puts it,

It'll be okay.

What's next for these two? They started as best

friends and then it became romantic, and now that

it has ended, they both value the friendship that

started it all. Life as a high-profile artist isn't easy at

the best of times, but hopefully, they both will hold

onto the love they shared once with no regrets.

On November 17, 2021 Camila shared an Instagram

story relating to her split with Shawn,

“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic

relationship but our love for one another as humans is

stronger than ever,” the statement read. “We started

our relationship as best friends and will continue to

be best friends. We so appreciate your support from

the beginning and moving forward.”

“There’s a lot of love and mutual respect between

them, and they’ll forever have each other’s back,” an

insider says.

I've discovered several looped

versions of the song for continuous

sessions of listening. I have to admit

I was extremely moved and touched

by the song — leading me to research

and share this with you guys. And,

yes, I have been listening to it the

entire time I have been putting this

together.

With lyrics like these and Shawn's

haunting voice beautifully arranged,

it's hard not to be pulled into the

heartache with him.

"Oh, the future we dreamed of is fading

to black

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

Oh, there's nothing more painful

Nothing more painful, oh-woah (Ohwoah)"

“I was just really craving to make music

that felt super honest and super raw

and was going through some hard

stuff at the time. Being able to just

walk around Toronto — which is

where I usually go back to process

things and where you’ll find me in my

most intimate moments — it feels like

a perfect place and video for the song.”

– Shawn Mendes

Sid's Selfie World | February 2022


Sidney Ortlieb, is a teen model, actor and dancer from Edmonton,

Alberta. She is also the founder and CEO of Sid’s Selfie World.

The idea of a Selfie Studio came to life after struggling to find

locations for photo shoots. “When you don’t have your own studio, it

can be tricky to do photo shoots all year long, especially in Edmonton.

Access to camera ready backdrops can make or break a photo session.

At Sid’s Selfie World you don’t have to worry about bad weather, poor

lighting or somebody telling you this is private property.” Sidney

wanted to create a warm, safe environment filled with a variety of sets

for anyone to enjoy. Some of the sets that may appeal particularly to

models include: Midas Room with a gold coin adorned claw foot bath

tub, Neon Room splattered with neon paint and lit with a black light

to illuminate the colors, The Crayon Room - a black and white canvas

waiting for a pop of color, and the ever changing seasonal pop up sets.

Influencers or people who enjoy posting aesthetic Instagram photos

will find an abundance of opportunities for social media content.

But you don’t have to be a model to enjoy Sid’s Selfie World. There

is fun and entertainment for the general public to take pictures of

themselves, friends and family. A few great sets for group photos

are: the dumpster scene complete with goofy billboard slogans and

the bedroom scene where the bed is literally on the wall. Let your

imagination and editing skills take over and create a mind blowing

picture!

Taking photos and creating life long memories is what it is all about.

Sid’s Selfie World was an idea created out of the passion for modeling,

but expanded into something for everyone. Located across the street

from the Princess theatre, backing onto the Varscona Theatre, and

steps away from the Fringe Theatre Complex, Sid’s Selfie World is at

the intersection of Art, Photography, Entertainment and Fun.

You can see more photos and find out more information about Sid’s

Selfie World on their website: https://www.sidsselfieworld.com and

you can find them on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
