When I first found out that I had been officially accepted to compete at Miss World Canada 2019, the feeling was an indescribable one. Representing not just your hometown, but your entire province is both an honour and a privilege.
I come from a small town by the name of Torbay. What’s really cool about Torbay is that there is an almost identical town in Devon, England. The coast line looks exactly the same.
I decided to compete in Miss World Canada because for years I have been competing in pageants, and the experience is always different, but never any less amazing. Being surrounded by so many strong, incredible women and competing alongside them is something that is indescribable.
I also wanted to compete because I am an advocate. More specifically, I am a woman with a background in science (I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioural Neuroscience), who will begin law school in September and is politically active. I wanted to show other young women and girls that being a girl isn’t something that should ever hold you back from pursuing your dreams, no matter how impossible it may seem at the time.
To me, becoming the next Miss World Canada isn’t about the crown and the sash. It’s about being a role model and an active member of my community. It’s about being a good representative of my province and country all across the world, and building a platform to be the role model I know that I can be.
You might be wondering what pageant girls are like behind the scenes and what a day in the life of a titleholder is like. If this sounds like you, then I encourage you to follow my journey on the road to Miss World Canada.
With much love,
