HAL SOCIALS was created from a desire to unite influential people in a positive and empowering way. After personally experiencing cyberbullying and feeling as though my confidence and voice had been taken from me I wanted to fight back with kindness and community. Realizing our own personal value, purpose and belonging within our communities allows us to then extend ourselves to help others realize their unique calling and purpose. When we are confident in ourselves, we are better equipped to encourage others and collectively rise in positivity, making the world a better place.
HAL SOCIALS are events that bring people together to encourage each other to share our own unique voices, strengthening a community of kindness, inclusion and love.

She lost 100lbs and went through massive life change with a divorce pushing her into new chapter of single motherhood. But like, a badass chapter. Since then, she met this bearded guy and he drank her poison and asked her to marry him. So she locked that down quickly and now they rock the whole chosen family thing! After struggling to find love for her body after losing all that weight, she worked through a lot of inner dialogues to discover the value and meaning behind self-love - and well, she thinks it's worth sharing about.

Growing up in Sarnia, Canada, Kira-Jade never had a plan B. She always knew she wanted to be on stage and always knew she wanted to sing country music. See every diary, “When i grow up” school report or high school yearbook (which read “Future ambition: Country Singer; Role Model: Shania Twain”) for reference. Just like any true blue country artist, she learned to play guitar from her Grampa who lived with her as a little girl. They spent hours playing all of the classics together and he instilled a love for classic country music in her that has lasted to this day. That upbringing gave her a heart for real country music and also ignited a passion for storytelling in her songwriting.
