    TORONTO, Aug. 2 /CNW/ - After weeks of tears, tantrums and tremendous
talent, the winning protégé is revealed and rewarded with the coveted position
as Debbie Travis' Chief Designer.
    Thursday night on Global Television's 'FROM THE GROUND UP', Debbie
Travis, Canada's most popular design star, selected Toronto's Dvira Ovadia to
be her Chief Designer.
    Ovadia, a 26-year-old interior architect with an Architectural degree
from the University of Toronto and a Masters of Interior Design from the
renowned Pratt Institute in New York, combined her top-notch designs,
abounding enthusiasm and continual professionalism to outshine the competition
on a weekly basis.
    "Dvira began her journey on 'FROM THE GROUND UP' as a quiet designer, a
wallflower, but bit by bit she opened up to show her savvy design talent. As
each task challenged her to be her very best, the person that I would love to
work with emerged. Dvira will make a superb Chief Designer for the Debbie
Travis brand," said Travis.
    In season two of 'FROM THE GROUND UP WITH DEBBIE TRAVIS,' Travis brought
together 14 talented protégés from across Canada, each trying to land the job
of a lifetime. Pushed to their limit, this time it was all about talent and
working - from the ground up.
