Five Things to Know

  1. 1Cats are Connor's favourite animal. She has had so many different cats in her life, it’s hard to name them all!
  2. 2Connor would say 85% of her closet is full of thrifted clothing. Going to thrift stores as well as vintage stores with her friends is her favourite thing to do in her spare time.
  3. 3She moved to Toronto from the US at the age of 13.
  4. 4When Connor was younger, she was convinced she was going to become a professional baker. She binge watched every season of Cake Boss and would make a different cake every week.
  5. 5Connor's dad danced ballet professionally and was the reason she got into dance at the age of two.
