Charity: Special Olympics Missouri
While her love for video games, sports and shoes runs deep, above all, Canuzo considers her calling to be motherhood. Hoping to be remembered as excellent parents to their two children, Canuzo and her husband, Kevin Hatfield, work hard to emphasize academics and empathy toward others at home. After losing her sister (who was pregnant at the time) in a car accident eight years ago, Canuzo’s maternal instincts kicked in immediately. She realized the adoption of her nieces and nephews was her ultimate goal in life. For Canuzo, beauty is more of a mental state, requiring self-acceptance, confidence and positivity. Growing up in the Philippines, Canuzo admits to having a skewed sense of beauty at a young age, focusing mostly on aesthetics until her interest shifted to athletics. As a supporter of Special Olympics Missouri, Canuzo enjoys being an advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves. Tenacious, ambitious and empowering, Canuzo can typically be found cheering on her children from the sidelines, antique shopping or nose-deep in one of Oprah’s latest picks. A firm believer in dreaming big, Canuzo hopes to one day be a huge part of an orphanage and extend her maternal wings even further.—D.D.
