Amanda Tozser is giving her time and talents to help emerging artists in Airdrie.
She has volunteered with Rocky View Schools doing demos in theatrical makeup for local middle and high schools.
As well, she has worked with organizations such as The Airdrie Health Foundation, Airdrie Public Library, Boys and Girls Club of Airdrie and many more.
“I love to support the community, especially youth, wherever I can,” says Tozser.
“Giving your time is the best way to give back. To maybe use my skills to inspire some of the kids in school I think might help open their eyes to all the different avenues that they can pursue in life.”
In the last year, Tozser has been working in the film industry as a makeup artist. While there, she’s been encouraging her colleagues to also give back to the community through donations or mentorship.
Nominator and friend Joannah Pruden has known Tozser for 14 years.
“Amanda gives so much of herself to our community and more often than not it’s all via volunteer work,” says Pruden.
“She has a beautiful heart and loves to share her talents with the smaller members of our community as well as the adults.”
