Accoring to Billboard, Kiesza isn't just a musician, "Born in Calgary, Kiesza participated in theater, ballet, and tap dancing before joining the Royal Canadian Navy at 17, where she was trained as a code-breaker. At 18, Kiesza also competed in the Miss Universe Canada pageant before focusing on a music career.

Leaving the Navy, Kiesza attended Berklee College of Music in Boston on a scholarship." She was also selected by Fendi to model their "Color Block," a line of sunglasses.

2014 has been a great year overall for Kiesza and we can only expect her talents to take her even further in the future.
