Ria Diy (aka Ria Jade) now has a platform to showcase other talented teens.

The Grade 10 student from Thomas Haney secondary has landed her very own local TV show, titled eveRIAthing.

The show, which airs on ReyFort Network TV (Channel 701), features teens and young adults who are talented, have a stack of achievements and those who have overcome struggles in their life.

For Diy, the TV show brings her a step closer to her dream of being “the next star” and allows her to share her passion for performing.

The show’s first episode featured  singer Jerrica Santos, who is this year’s Grand Champion for Variety’s Got Talent.

Her show is also in the works of being continuously aired on SHAW’s Multicultural Channel 116.

The 15-year-old is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter who just performed at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair to rave reviews.

“If I can inspire every person out there to be healthy and happy through my music and example, then I shall have fulfilled one of my greatest dreams,” says Diy, who is also the reigning youth champion for Ridge Meadows Got Talent.

She was also featured on the band One Direction’s website for her singing a cover of their song Moments.

Last year, she made it to the wild card auditions for the YTV show The Next Star.

Ria Diy is always looking for guests with a unique story to feature on her show. To learn more, visit everiathing.com.
