She was awarded her Canada Cord in 2010 for her accomplishments in the areas of leadership and community service. Chelsea was diagnosed with an anaphylactic allergy to peanuts at 1 year old. Her life has been full of challenges as a result of lack of awareness and acceptance.

Chelsea says she lives her life each day by remembering that life is short and it shouldn’t be spend focusing on the negative things in life but the positive.
