Maren Ord Tells Edmonton Sun About Career
EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA -- With tours shaping up for fall and a series of
free concerts at Kinsmen Park during the World Championships in Athletics
and playing in Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair, Maren Ord has been forced to
quit her part-time job at Treasured Memories. What has been been bad for the
scrapbook industry has been good for the music business.
With the full support of her large, musical Mormon family, Ord, 20, is
preparing for her August 6 performance at the Festival of the Worlds. She
says she is delighted to be able to make a career out of the dream she's had
since she was a child.
When asked about her perfect day, Ord replied, "It would be Sunday." "Wake
up, go to church, come home spend time with my family," she said. "We try to
have family dinners every Sunday. Actually, every Sunday is perfect for me."
When asked who she most admires most, Ord said, "My parents. I really look
up to them. They're a really good example to me. They've been the most
influential in my life." Her most extravagent expense is her art supplies
and her greatest weakness is chocolate.
Her favorite quote is "Remember who you are and what you stand for."
Every Sunday is the perfect Sunday
