Sindy visited Michelle’s Place Breast Cancer Resource Center April 2016 at Reality Rally and was so touched by what the center does she knew she would come back to Reality Rally in 2017 and also knew that she would do something extraordinary to help raise funds. I'm going to do it!! I'm going to chop off my hair!
That beautiful hair would be her way of making a difference. It would make a difference to her as she fully intended to have 21inches less hair but she knows that 21inches would make a really big difference in the lives of many for those fighting breast cancer receiving the services she saw at Michelle’s Place.
She made a bold declaration and appeal on Facebook.
"I'm excited to participate at Reality Rally again & continue to raise funds for Michelles Place Breast Cancer Resource Center.
I admire the strong women who would shave their head while undergoing treatment for Breast Cancer. I can never be that brave but I want to do something.
Tease Hair Lounge has agreed to cut off an inch of my hair for every $100 raised (max of 21 inches).
My goal is $2100.
Help me reach my goal and let's make a difference!

Sindy Nguyen, otherwise known as "Sindy with an S," is an Event MC, Assistant Cruise Director, Model, Beauty Queen/Judge, World Traveller & was a Houseguest on Big Brother Canada Season 3.
Having grown up in the small town of Huntsville, Ontario, Sindy is anything but a small town girl. Of Vietnamese descent, Sindy is fluent in both English and Vietnamese. Currently residing in Toronto, Ontario, Sindy always has a project on the go.
With her passion, skills, and determination, she was a part of numerous musicals, including Seussical & Aida, the film King of the Camp aired on YTV, and several music videos with artists such as Lady Antebellum, Keshia Chante, and Neverest, just to name a few. Sindy continued to develop her talents while attending Humber College as a member of the Humber Varsity Cheerleading Team as well as the Humber Hype Dance Team.
With her array of talents, Sindy's biggest passions are to host large events and entertain crowds. Sindy combined these two passions while working at sea with Princess Cruise Line as an Assistant Cruise Director. For two and a half years, Sindy was able to entertain guests onboard while also visiting four of the seven continents! Her next goal is to travel to the remaining three continents (South America, Australia and Antarctica) before she's 30.
Embracing the idea that there is more than one route to success in life, Sindy’s taken a less traditional road in achieving her goals. Her ability to test her limits and fears has given her the courage to skydive, surf, bungee jump and shark cage dive. Sindy has traveled to 38 countries believing that the world is her textbook; each country is a new chapter and each experience a new lesson.
Sindy is a huge believer in giving back, staying involved in the community and helping any way that she can. She has previously fundraised for Variety Village, The Rainbow Children Foundation, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, CARE Canada and the Susan G Koman Foundation.
Due to the development of vocal chord nodules in early 2013, Sindy has returned home. While home, Sindy has decided to pursue her love for pageants and was honoured to represent Canada internationally in Orlando, London & Paris.
In 2015, Sindy was selected as 1 of 16 Houseguests to be on Big Brother Canada Season 3. She was the second houseguest evicted from the house. As one of the first five evicted houseguests, she was given the opportunity to re-enter the house if she won the challenge. Sindy successfully outlasted the other four and re-entered the house. However, her time in the house was cut short and was evicted for the second time and becoming the second member of the Jury.
Sindy strives to be an extraordinary role model by empowering others to understand that any dream is attainable and the unconventional way of learning can be the exceptional way.
