CANADA IS A COUNTRY THAT HAS A LOT TO OFFER. BUT STRANGELY ENOUGH NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF THAT. THE REASON FOR THAT IS THAT CANADA PROBABLY SUFFERS FROM BEING IN THE SHADOW OF NEIGHBORING UNITED STATES, AND THUS, IN THAT GEOGRAPHIC POSITION IS DOOMED TO ALWAYS BE THE COUNTRY NEXT TO.
Canada is not a country like any other. First of all, there is the duality in language. English and French. Secondly, Canada is officially ruled by a queen. Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom. It is the country that invented modern ice hockey, the fastest game in the world. Canada stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific in the west, the Arctic Ocean and Greenland in the north and as said the United States in the south with which Canada shares the world’s longest border. And did you know for example that after Russia, Canada is the largest country in the world?
Most of Canada’s population is concentrated in the southeast area, mainly due to the temperature and the geographic conditions. Christopher Côté is no exception to this. As many Canadians, especially in this area of the country, Christo has a French family name which hints to his hints at his origins. Christo’s name means ‘side’ in English and one might wonder if once this name was given to the families who settles in the country that, as mentioned before, often is referred to as the country asides from the US. But there is nothing ‘sideways’ to Christopher.
When it comes to his surname, Christo Côté is in pretty good company. Several politicians share his name, as well as artists and a large handful of successful hockey players. Christo however has set his mind on a very different career. No less glamorous though. Christo is determined to become a successful international model and personal trainer. And for that he has come to the right place.
I don’t regret a lot of things in my life, but if there is one thing I would have liked to have done differently it is working out. If only I would have started a bit earlier. A regret Christopher Côté will never have. I mean, just look at this guy. He screams physical perfection in every way and is only 19 years old. Christo is of Indian and French Canadian descent, lives in Quebec City and is fluent in both French and English. His muscular looks do not only have their origins in the gym. Christo is also passionate about hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball and football. He admits his performing arts experience is limited and he isn’t much of a singer, but he likes to move his body on the dance floor whenever he can.
Obviously keeping fit and maintaining his physique is important to Christo. Training has been a challenge for him but it does pay off. Already Christo Côté’s name and portraits are part of the portfolios of various renowned photographers, such as Kevin Moore, Vincent Chine, Rejean Desjardins, Marie Gravel, Eric Morin, Daniel Pelletier and NJ Claude. Already experienced in editorial, print, fashion and runway modeling, it can only be a matter of time before Christo Côté will have an international breakthrough and become yet another great thing Canada has to offer. –BM-
