We believe in rewarding hard work and recognizing achievement.
Every guest on our show is special and we are very privileged to feature them. We have seen guests who, after their guest appearance, achieved even more -- they have raised the bar beyond our expectations and we'd like to honour them for their continued quest for excellence. We love hearing updates from our guests because they are role models in many ways and regardless of the season that they guested in, every guest can be a candidate for nomination. As we say, there is a time for everyone because there is always room for more stars in the sky!

Previous to that victory, Sasha was the BC Champion in TaeKwondo for 2013, Champion in BC TaeKwondo Masters Cup 2013, and the BC TaeKwondo Masters Cup 2014.
Last June at the JCC TaeKwondo Championships, Sasha competed against a 10-year-old teammate, finished off with a tie (5:5) and therefore had to go for a Golden Point, injuring their knees and bearing the pain.
