Canadian Recording artist and actress Susie McLean shares her thoughts for the day, favourite travel experiences and her top instagram moments.

From stay at home Mom to walking the red carpet, Susie McLean is living proof that dreams can come true. Born and raised in Toronto, Susie now resides in Los Angeles where she is pursuing her many dreams. Growing up in a home where Gospel music was the norm she quickly connected to music which led her to play piano and write her own songs. Finding her expression through music has earned her a few accolades for both innovative songwriting and dynamic covers. Her original piece, “Sing Your Song” was nominated at the Independent Music Awards and she was also nominated as “Best Jazz Artist” at the Toronto Independent Music Awards.

In 2019, Susie released her debut music video for her girl-powered anthem “She’s Unstoppable.” The message behind the song is all about living your truth, not playing it safe and stepping out regardless of your fears. It’s the message of the many women who have persevered through hard times and never gave up. The music video, released on International Women’s Day, was produced by Sherien Barsoum and an all female crew.

As a child growing up in Toronto, Susie also had a love for the camera. As a 9-year-old, Susie would watch TV commercials and then pretend to be in a commercial of her own. She would act out the whole scene for her mother and her siblings who became her first audience. “You’re going to be watching me in commercials one day!” she would proudly say. Fast forward to today and Susie has starred in dozens of commercials for brands like McDonald’s, WestJet, Ford, KFC, Telus, Home Hardware, Honey Bunches of Oats, Canada Post, Bank of America and much more. “I still can’t believe that the same little girl that would dream about being in tv commercials is doing it today!” Susie says.

Your future is shaped by the words you speak. When your words line up with what you believe, nothing is impossible!

Susie’s “go-getter” attitude has paved a way for her budding success as a commercial actress. Her passion and belief in hard work has landed her roles in TV Shows, a feature film and partnerships with brands that empower women. She keeps herself motivated by celebrating small wins and cultivating gratitude. Her life motto is, “Enjoy where you are on the way to where you’re going.”
