He’s one of the most multifaceted individuals we know and a force to be reckoned with. We sat down with him to chat about some of his favourite things so that you all can get to know him better.
Here’s what he had to say…
How did you get started as a creator?
J: I started as a social media creator after I met a few creators at events in 2016. I was just finishing a TV contract and decided that I would dedicate more time to engaging with my audience.
What’s your favourite part of being a creator?
J: Similar to my role as a nurse, I love connecting with people over social media and sharing certain aspects of my life with them. I love creating content that speaks to health, style and travel.
Stop what you’re doing! Think of all the nurses in your life. Think of a nurse who cared for you or a loved one. Think of all the patients each year that are cared for by nurses across this country and around the world. Think of the nurses at the bedside, in the operating rooms, in emergency departments, in labour and delivery units, in intensive care units, in hospices, in community health centres, in schools, in clinics, in rural communities, in mental health facilities, in long-term care, in rehab centres, on the phone through tele-health, in policy development and research and in education, teaching future generations of nurses! NOW GO WISH THEM A HAPPY NURSES WEEK!!!! 👨🏽⚕️👩🏼⚕️👨🏽⚕️👩🏼⚕️ #nursejake #nursingweek #nursingweek2018 #nurses #nurse
What’s your greatest achievement to date?
J: Co-producing and writing my own digital health series for CBC Life called Sexploration!
What’s the biggest item on your bucket list?
J: Travelling to Japan.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
J: I would move back to Paris, France. I lived there for six months in 2009 and fell in love …with the city.
If the 10 year old version of yourself met you, what would they think?
J: “You’re gay?!”
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
J: The best advice I’ve ever received is to never give up! That has stuck with me in all facets of my life, whether it be in my career or personal life.
Who’s your role model?
J: My role model still is my late Grandma, who we called Nanny. She was a smart, confident, and loving woman!
Favourite restaurant in the city?
J: At the moment, Sugo! Chef Connor is the best!
J: Saint Laurent– hands down.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
J: It would most definitely be Aaliyah.
And there you have it! We hope that you got to know Jake Mossop a little better because we know one thing for sure… he’s one in a million!
